More medium than I expected. The obvious notes we got were Mexican chocolate but with a peppery kick and a leather finish. Could use a few more years in the cellar.

Huge fruit, blackberry, cranberry, dark cherry, cola, black tea, cinnamon, caramel, rhubarb, and molasses. High alcohol, high acid, medium plus tannins, and a long finish. Like drinking a fruit roll up. A bit on the hot side, though.

Must give much for time for opening. Quite delicious. Wimpy finish, delicate. Flower power.

A delightful blend, mild, notes of blackberry, sweet with a clean finish.
