Smooth red that doesn't make your mouth dry, little bite at the end and a hint of cinnamon.

Dense purple-red in color. Mint, butter, leather, wood, vanilla and red fruit on nose. A bit less interesting in mouth - red fruit initially (blackberry , cherry), wood. Seed bitterness, cherry and cassis on finish. Minty aftertaste. Some mouth coating astringency. Our first president would find it quaffable, but TJ would drink better. 14.9% alcohol, big but not hot overall.

Nose of alcohol, wood, and spice. Sweet and fruity with a hint of spice. A little too hot and alcoholic. Sharp with hints of tartness.
