image

My Rating 86 Points. 
Price $18.

Dark ruby in color with a purplish rim.

Pronounced nose of cloves, oak, vanilla, licorice, blackberries,blueberries, figs, plums, cherry pie, spices and black pepper.

Medium-bodied with medium acidity and long legs.

Dry on the palate with mainly secondary flavors like oak, vanilla, licorice, toast and blackberries, plums, cherries, cloves, spices and peppercorn.

Long finish with round tannins and spices.

Delicious and entertaining by itself, but would go great with a piece of steak too.

Smooth and pleasurable, especially for those who like heavy oak flavors.High alcohol too, but not noticeable.

14.9% alcohol by volume.
