Deep dark ruby red. Very clear no presence of sediment. Notes of boiled blackberry caramel wood chips and alcohol. Black pepper spice. Chalk? Hot alcohol at 15.5%. Tannins are medium minus. Leaves a rounded mouthfeel with bold burn of alcohol. Could use a few years of age but afraid of passing its prime. Not upset with this wine or a great fan.

Dark fruit, very juicy. A tad too sweet with food.
