Dark brownish color showing very little signs of red left.

light burnt caramel on the nose as no signs of fruit are left.

An interesting mouthfeel of milk chocolate but some very noticeable drying tannins. No fruit detected and it finishes of a burnt sugar but then the tannins sneak right back up.

If it had less sugar, I would have thought I'd be drinking an aged bordeaux.

I liked it for its curiosity and mouthfeel.

87.

Smells like Shoe Polish, but the single round note of flavor is of chocolate. The texture is very nice, very silky. Y says "ick" of the smell.
