This wine smells great. Medium intensity aromas of jammy blackberry and plum, vanilla, brown sugar. On the palate it's drying and bitter like rolling a peach pit around in your mouth. Not very pleasant and the alcohol overpowers. The finish is medium to long but it's peach pit bitter. I can see this pairing with food a lot better. There's not much going on here besides a nice smelling wine that doesn't taste great.
