Plums, smokiness, meatiness, black pepper, and spice. It has lots of fruit and is full-bodied and well-balanced. Great value Shiraz.
For the price I enjoyed it, a bit much on the sugar for me but over all worth buying one bottle for taste but I wouldn't stock up on this one.

Sweet, creamy berries with sweet smoke and some unusual olive and herb notes. Palate is dark cherry, white pepper, and red cherry with some grippy tannic astringency.

Love it or hate it.... Did not love it at all. As an amateur and lover of French wines, I was shocked with the smoke/smokiness. Felt like the wine sat in burnt barrels or the smokiness taste was added. Only had two sips and returning both bottles I bought. First time in more than 10 yrs. Hated it, so did my wife without suggesting to her. For those who love it, good luck! Not my cup of tea.
Truly bizarre, a wine that starts off brilliantly (89-90 range) before collapsing into a bretty, undrinkable mess; initially, it's olive tapenade and smoky bacon, backed up by green pepper, herbs, garrigue, and dark fruit, rough and rustic, and it's all quite intriguing and delicious, but then, within a couple of hours, it's that awful band-aid odour associated with Brettanomyces taint, with antiseptic cleaning fluid and plastic, foul on the nose and blandly unpleasant in the mouth; maybe worth another shot to see if this was a bottle-specific problem, but a huge disappointment overall.
