3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Serving: 750 ml. bottle from Total Wine Sterling. It pours murky dark brown with a frothy light tan head. The nose is a little chocolaty with slight paper notes. The flavor is a little sweet with some milk chocolate, cocoa powder, plastic, light alcohol, and a touch of fruitiness. Full bodied and slightly creamy on the tongue with an almost chalky finish. Decent.
