Smell is light, a bit musty before swirling in the glass but a plummy smell is released upon swirling. Initial taste sensation is fairly smooth, watery, a touch bitter but like the plums that were released in the smell, more flavor quickly follows. The wine is dry, tastes a bit like chalk, that bitterness keeps coming back which doesn't thrill me but it's not too overwhelming. I'm struggling to find real character in this wine. It's either too old and has dissipated or it was simply never there leaving me pretty darn disappointed, especially for a wine in this price range. It's weak.
