Pours sangria in color. ON THE NOSE: licorice, menthol and smoke. ON THE PALATE: plum and not much else. Did open up a bit after a few hours but not much here at all a slight reductive taste on palate and a very short finish even a hint of sweetness

Brawny quaffer. Great for grilled meats and hearty cheeses.

2013. Wish this was under cork rather than screw cap. Reductive stink makes me wonder what it could have been. It opens nice. This was much better the second day.

Spicy nose, fruity taste with mid tannins and saltiness. Very easy to drink, but not complex.

Meh. Nose of cherry, pepper, and forest floor. Two dimensional palate with short finish. Not terrible.
