Nice deep color, really sticks to the sides of the glass as you swirl it. Smells a bit like tobacco and leather. The flavor is mild at first but then pops into a rather complex finish. There is some clove and rather a lot of smoke. It isn’t good smoke in my estimation, more like bacon bits than anything else. It’s almost as if the smoky flavor is artificial. All in all, I can see how some would like this wine, but I just don’t care for this particular combination of flavors.
