Cloudy reddish brown to the eye

nose of burnt sugar and a crushed red berry, I likened them to red currants.

On the palate the red berries and currants show through to a medium thin body that finishes candied sweet.

looks like somethign to drink up

Not flawed, simply outclassed. Could be a decent wine in a different context, but tonight it just didn't belong.

83 points.
