    March 4, 2017 - Nose comes across slightly stewed dark fruit. Raisin flavor. Some tar/funk and chalk. This has not held up well. Heat on the back end. Disjointed.

    October 14, 2016 - On looks alone it had me flashing back to the Passover table at my girlfriend's house. Manischewitz-like in color, the wine is purple with a ruby/brownish rim. It’s kind of thick and cloudy.

    Much like it’s doppelganger, it stained the glass and the legs were so thick (high alcohol, FYI) the wine had cankles.

    Dark raspberries waft from the glass. No doubt there is lots of barrel aging. Those wood-induced smells of coffee, leather, chocolate, and mocha hit me first. There was a little bit of church altar — like myrrh or frankincense in the background of the wine too but overall, the smell reminded me of a dark chocolate/raspberry cake — with alcohol. That said the overall impression left my mouth watering for this apparent chocolate dessert.

    If you don’t like high alcohol wines, this may not be for you because my first impression was of the burn. But it is softer now with some age.What made the wine interesting — there were leather (like chewing on a belt) notes and a flavor of sweet chewing tobacco too - yes, I have many vices.

    June 29, 2016 - Much too sweet for my liking.

    May 27, 2016 - Paired wonderfully with a wide range of appetizers. Went exceptionally well with tomato bisque soup.

    Slow ox'd for approximately two hours. Medium tannins, tasty wine.
