Spicy, intriguing and flavourful - not bad for a bottle under $13. Despite the sweet and somewhat heavy handed oak,...

Every time I went back to the glass there was something more. At first whiff it's earthy and brambly, then comes the dark fruit and leather followed by liquorice and juniper, and lastly a little smokiness and some sweet spices. The long liquorice-tinged finish has an inviting hint of black tea and a gentle tannic presence.

A reasonably put together wine that will please though who enjoy ripe fruit and sweet oak notes. This wine has tons of black fruit and plum that is edging prune along with smoked meat and a bit of vanilla. It's medium-bodied, the tannins are reasonably soft, and the acidity balanced. Not the kind of wine I search out, but it's well made and will please the masses. Tasted May 2012.
