V13. Delicious. Sooty, smokey nose. Rich blackberry fruit. Earthy , cola and black pepper finish. Nicely balanced.

Attractive earthy complexity mingles with woodsy oak spice (no vanilla) atop the ripe red fruit. The 14+% abv sticks out awkwardly, particularly on the finish.

Very happy.......cool; cherry-like fruit. Soft and well rounded with a hint of tartness on the finish. Strongly encouraged....
