Loved the change of "nose". Nice heavy smoky smell. Lingering finish with a nice balance fruit/earth.
Not a real good bottle. Don't know where the 93 comes from??
For a $20 bottle of wine, it lives up to description - but that is it. It is presented as having a "complex and elegant" attack, but I would say it is more odd and slightly bitter. At 14.5%, I felt the aroma was shot down by the strong ALC content, but after breathing A LONG TIME, it balanced out a bit. Much better taste and dry finish than expected, but I would relegate it to a dinner wine over an "enjoyment" wine.
