Oak monster, vanilla, heavy dark fruit. It was fun. Nice weeknight drinker that holds good flavor over days.

Delicious! Dried fruits with a smokiness from the bourbon barrels

I've never eaten a candle, but if I had, this would have been the tastiest candle I've ever eaten.

Has a very well rounded palate presence. It has a full range of flavor. Tastes like Apothic with a sherry finish. Has a slight jammy flavor and 17% alcohol. It really isn't bad, it's just that hint of sweetness that turns me off a bit.

From my first taste to my last, the flavors changed and my pallet enjoyed it's evolving blend.

The most disgusting thing I've ever put in my mouth! I literally spit it across the room.

I really have no respect for this. Alcohol is ridiculous. So unwieldy and out of whack in its attempt to be the biggest wine you'll ever have. Syrupy texture and dusty fruit like Port wine before a hot, caramel/vanilla finish sets in. Might have been okay without the tart, raspberry jam mid palate. So fucking flabby. I'm out.

Deep ruby in color with a short purplish rim.

Sweet nose of blackberries, blueberries, carmel, vanilla, oak, spices, chocolates, coffee, mocha, tobacco and black pepper.

Full-bodied and extracted with medium minus acidity and long, long legs.

Dry to off dry on the palate with blackberries, black currants, raisins, dried figs, wood, vanilla, cloves, tobacco, coffee, chocolates, peppercorn, spices, earth, light vegetables, bitter herbs and graphite.

Long finish with soft tannins and cherries.

This California Red blend is always enjoyable.

Good by itself as a sipping wine by the porch, but might be sweet for some. Big, jammy and bold with nice complexity and a long finish.

This 5 year old is still drinking very nicely. I aged it for a few years, but I don't see much difference. Easy to drink, so watch out with all that alcohol. Great for parties. 😉

Aged for 3 months in Bourbon Barrels.

17% alcohol by volume.

This California red blend is always enjoyable. Big, bold, fruit forward and somewhat sweet.

Showing black fruits with chocolates, mocha, caramel and coffee notes.
Dry to off dry on the palate and good right out of the bottle.

Nice length on the finish with soft tannins and tangy raspberries.

Good for parties and good by itself as a sipping wine.

A couple of years ago I really liked it, now it seems a little too sweet for me.
