The nose here is all melted licorice and tar, with sweet baked plum pie and hints of sage, mint and vanilla bean. This starts off attractively enough, with bright acidity and a well-balanced, medium-bodied feel. Soon, the dry and rough tannins stick out, followed by a little alcoholic burn on the palate. There is nice blackberry and blackcurrant fruit that takes an a bit of a candied edge, but the tannins take over on the back end, yielding to the alcohol on the finish. There's something attractive about this wine nonetheless. It's a gutsy wine for a bronto burger and fun to taste, but it's a bit rough going. 84pts
