Aroma: cocoa Palate: nutmeg, bramble berries, cocoa, pronounced alcohol, bitter finish. Left it sitting out with a cork in it and after 3 days I liked it more - less alcohol. After a week, it was not as good.
Perfectly decent dessert wine. Although most of m experience with dessert wines is with white wines, this was pretty accessible. Not too sweet with enough acid to balance whatever sharpness was present. Not a big fancy dessert wine, but certainly respectable. I have no idea if more aging would change the flavors.
Color like cherry brandy - quite red with a little garnet. Gregarious tangerine, lime, "fresh rain on dry earth" aromas. Caramel, cherry, orange, and lime notes in a 2 / 4 sweetness level. Could call it a lower alcohol brandy? Certainly great with cake desserts or a cigar, not as alluring on it's own. respectable finish with the fruit lasting almost as long as the heat. (5+12+14+6) = 87
