A rich, hedonistic wine. The nose is Port-like, with resounding depth in addition to strong scents of prune and chocolate. The palate has an almost Bourbon-like quality to it; it’s that rich and warm. And the finish is soft and plush, with bitter chocolate and espresso flavors.
Gets off the mark with some murk and earth, but clears up to display aromas of apple skin, horsehide and dark fruits. Decent weight and only modest tannins create a chunky, almost syrupy personality that fosters flavors of chocolate, liqueur and coffee.
