The 2019 Smokescreen The Chemist is a blend of GSM, Petite Sirah, and Teroldego. The Chemist has a deep, inky purple color and aromas of berry cobbler, blackberry, and tobacco. On the palate, The Chemist is a big, bold, racy wine with tons of black fruits, tar, graphite, and a long finish with ultra-fine tannins. Although powerful, it is nuanced and elegant.
