LOVE the nose on this wine, very floral, lots of fresh lilacs, kind of like baby-wipes in a good way. Nice black olives, wet logs, cedar, tobacco and kind of like a smokey burning cigar. Really cool and different nose. The color is a very deep purple close to light brown. Full bodied. Explosive palate that’s not hot but more smooth and a medium time to the finish. Fruity with a strong Welch’s grape juice on the mid palate. Little black olives, dark cherry and cinnamon and continued fruit through the finish. Very little bitterness on the finish and just a touch of tannins. I really like this wine. It’s not an everyday wine but priced fair at 16 bucks. This is a definitely try wine. Let me know how you like.
