My Rating 82 Points.
Ruby in color with a wide reddish rim.
Fruity nose of plums, sweet cherries, smoke, light vanilla, earth, spices, cloves, light barnyard, green vegetables, black tea and black pepper.
Medium bodied with medium acidity and nice legs.
Dry on the palate and fruity, with blueberries, plums, currants, oak, licorice, tobacco, spices, chocolates and peppercorn.
Spicy finish with soft tannins and black pepper.
This is a good everyday wine. Easy drinking and good for parties. Simple with a soft mouthfeel and a barnyard aftertaste.

Not my style, but can do in a pinch.
14.5% (Wow!) alcohol by volume.
