Ruby with red fruit aromas and aromatic spice notes. On the palate tart raspberry flavors with herb, vanilla and smoke tones. Tannins were grainy, high acidity with smoky notes on its medium finish and ended a bit harsh.

Opaque Ruby, soft & spicy. Nose of mushrooms, and baking spices with fresh red fruits, but also developing notes of dried fruits and mocha. Dry, with high acidity and medium(-) tannins, medium alco, tastes like cherry cola, with blend of earl grey & fruit tea mix, vanilla. It’s complex but somehow not really in my taste, bit too much charred wood. Spicy medium(+) length finish.

Smells are very earthy, dark, smooth, low tones. Incredible grape flavor up front, mid tannins, then a spike of high alcohol and bitter flavors. Would be great with steak, hard to drink alone.
