A bit of everything.
This wine combines a lot, despite the name, it doesn’t hit you in the face like a truck. It is well balanced and pleasant.
In the glass it is a red with dark purple. The nose is light, no hints of oak are detected. The taste of this wine is unique, complete with a lite oak. My tongue finds more of a Syrah flavor than anything else, but still detecting some slight oak and pepper. The finish is smooth to the slightest hint of bitterness.
Nothing is really distinct about this wine, it’s just surprising how well balanced it is, especially since I wasn’t expecting much. For the price this wine blend will definitely appear on my table again.
