Tasting Notes: The appearance was concentrated purple. The nose had hints of caramel, minerality, and smoke, The palate had very slight sweetness, chalk, vanilla, and plum with a good dose of tannins. The finish was warm and long.
Overall this wine had a distinct nose, was thick and fairly well balanced with good complexity. A very nice wine for a good price. A great recommendation and would do well with any BBQ. HC
