Earth and smoke cover the solid nose on this full, tannic, well-oaked wine that bears similarities in body and mouthfeel to a Cabernet. Spicy and peppery, the core of fruit is very much there. May actually soften over time, but most won't age it. Very competent mainstream wine, but a suggestion: lose the plastic cork seal. Best Buy.
