The wine itself is a beautiful deep ruby color that lets plenty of light through. This is a big wine, 14.5% alcohol, but you don't sense that in the nose. That's because this wine has a wonderfully powerful nose of leather, cigar and tobacco. Just smelling it conjures up images of an old study in some mansion with overstuffed leather chairs and walls of books. On tha palate this imagery continues as there is just a hint of plum and then you are again washed with leather and tobacco with just a bit of coffee to round things out. Very smooth with almost no tannins present. A wonderful sipping wine especially since it can be found for under $15.
