Quite unusual on the nose...full of vegetal notes (celery, anise) some herbs too and black peppercorns and black liquorice...some red fruit is still there but def fading...medium sweet...I think this wine will keep for other few years but judging from the aromas it has def reached maturity.
By the way... For $9 it s great

It's fun to taste a #port or better a #fortified from #california made with #zinfandel I wouldn't really recommend this, but fun nevertheless.
