Open one day at time of tasting, but sealed with a vacu-vin system.
Sweet dark cherries on the nose. Burnt rubber mixed with dark over-ripe burnt cherry and smoke and a hint of carmelized onion / green pepper on the front of the palate, moving to over-ripe and very astringent / acidic / tannic prune after-taste, mixed with a non-carbonated overly-acidic cherry cola taste. Seems a bit out of balance.
Improves with multiple tastes, but still extremely astringent / tannic, and seems out of balance for what it is. 83-84
