Quite some tannins and bitter when pushed, but a real big sweetness, minty back of throat, sweet blooming aftertastes, with an umami taking over in the late aftertaste. Grapes, with some oily basement notes. Deep heat, pit of stomach, vibrating heat rising to back and face, I can feel heartbeats. Leaf material is a bit cut up but nice leaves and some quite large leaves.
