Wine is light but a bit more acidic than I generally like. I can't taste too much in terms of fruit. A little smokeyness

Hard to coax much complexity out of the nose. Very dark fruits that are not over-ripe. The wine is in balance on the nose and palate but just not much complexity. The wine fans out nicely on the palate with moderate tannins.
