3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
The pour is a nice dark purple-red color with great clarity. An intense grape aroma to it, which is nice. But, there’s also some cough syrup qualities to it. Mild Kool Aid and booze. Things are pretty much the same on the palate. Big red grape and sweet grape juice flavors. Seems to have a slight tannic feel and a definite booziness.

Bottle… Pours clear and burnt orange with several, long, meaty, Monica Brant-like legs. The aromatic highlights are honey and Cabernet grapes and skins.

Sweet, vanilla, lightly acidic, and then dry finish. Bottle courtesy of KickInChalice!
