Dark red in color, tart, red fruit, some slight smokiness and dusty flavors, softened tannins, fairly light in intensity and cigar tobacco on the finish. Hint of pencil lead early on in the flavor profile.
This was my second, and last bottle. Not much of a nose - mostly a thin wave of alcohol heat coming through. Some elegant, old world bitter cherries on the palate. Not much tannic structure, with a thin mouthfeel. Tasted the way I remembered my last bottle, despite an additional several years of age. I can see some people like this wine, but not for me.
