3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle shared during the Grand Tasting of RBWG 2015. Pours clear chestnut with a foamy head. Pretty hearty, with lots of tangy and ripe fruits, berries, caramel. Medium sweet flavor, pretty oily and tangy. Lots of oxidation present in the finish with old fruits, berries in particular, some uninspiring caramel. Must be pretty old. Interesting, but that’s about it.

1.1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 2/20
The pour is a murky mahogany color with sort of a small off-white head. Wow, what an aroma. Cheese, vinegar, and soy sauce are among the strongest aromas. A bit of liquor and booze, maybe some oak, definitely some oxidation and leather. The flavor is just bad. Worcestershire sauce, soy sauce, bad chocolate, and vinegar. Definitely salty with some almost cauliflower taste. God, what is this? Medium bodied with low carbonation.
