This had that really rustic nose that I couldn't come up with a good term, so I see David Lawrason states "nose of tobacco/cigar", and yes that is just what that Rioja scent I enjoy seems to be just like, thanks Dave.

Enjoyed this very much with - cable59 WSBK Seinfeld (1993) - where Jerry can't remember the name of his date and he observes a splenectomy.

UPDATE to 88.7 - that scent was still present in empty wine glass 20 minutes afterwards - this is now my new house wine!
