mcberko (17178) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 20, 2016
750mL bottle, pours a deep dark reddish brown with a small white head. Aroma brings out Worcestershire sauce, balsamic, acidity and wood. Flavour brings out lots of tannins and red wine barrels, followed by some balsamic, a touch of sweetness and light acidity. Very tannic and earthy. Unusual and doesn’t really come together.
