Top Notes For
Frank Kuo

Color of dark purple, quite inky. Looks thick and nice legs. Nose of plentiful dark fruits, currants, tobacco, aldehyde, ripe grapes, and crayon. Fragrant notes balanced and then dominated by alcohol strength. Taste follows the nose with mellow tannins and good acidity. Ripe grapes, some plum, oak note, and spices also show up. Aftertaste shows a bit zest and more ripe grapes. Good quality with decent price.
