3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours like a glass of red wine. Aroma is berry juice, earthy with mild wine notes. Flavor is berry up front. Lightly tart with honey sweetness to provide balance. Slightly tannic with some earthy notes. Mild raw cocoa in the finish. A real nice sipper.

The pour is dark red with some slight tan tints around the edges. The smell is like a tootsie pop - there is really no other way to describe it. - milk chocolate, raspberry juice, slight booze. Flavor is not as good as the aroma but still quite nice. Raspberry liquor, finishing in a milk chocolate aftertaste. Boozy, sweet, good.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Consumed at a Christmas tasting in Chicago. Nose has good notes of chocolate and raspberry. Flavor is a bit strong, but still fairly drinkable. A sipper, but something nice to have an ounce or two of.
