With hints of violets, roasted coffee, and sweet black fruit, the aroma seemed to promised something better than what was delivered, though a good red wine with a medium-plus body, good acidity and tight tannin with a tart, almost sharp texture (maybe some not-so ripe grapes), this wine was another in what I've coined, "Doctor Jekyll Mister Hyde" wines (Now I like it, now I don't); sometimes rich and complex, sometimes just biting.
Flavors mirrored the aroma faithfully, and transitioned into the fair finish of spice, some heat (14% alcohol), and a hint of mint.
I read that English setters have their DNA rooted in Spain, so why not a wine named Mad Dogs and Englishmen being root there also?
