A smoky nose, with noticeable vanilla and stewed black fruit that precedes a combination of sweetness and spice (the two sensations compliment each other perfectly). In a word, this is delicious; and for the price, an incomparable bargain. A touch of heat on the finish reinforces the 14% alc but otherwise, very enjoyable.
Try it alongside barbequed ribs, burgers or even spice-rubbed chicken. Tasted May 2012.
