But for a smoky wood character, the nose really doesn’t give much away; some stewed dark fruit and spice notes if I try really hard. The body is somewhat lighter than expected considering the alcohol weight at 14.5%. The palate is smooth and easy drinking with a touch of red fruit sweetness that balances the spicy Shiraz core nicely. Tasted March 2012.
