Friday, February 1, 2013 - Humm...Looking at the previous tasting notes before opening, they cover the gamut. Here is my read.
Fairly dark color and murky. Nose is dark fruit, black cherry, sandalwood, and either a touch of heat or VA showing as whiff of nail polish, difficult for me to distinguish the fine nuance. Fruit is muted on the palate and hot spicy notes. Medium acidity and medium/light weight. There is a bitter hint on the roof of the mouth at the finish.
