The 15.3% alcohol level is the biggest challenge here. Very dark ruby in color, tart berry & cherry on the nose, along with an earthy scent and still a little alcohol even on day 2. The flavor is more ripe and dark cherry & berry, pepper and oak. Medium+ bodied. Again, still packing heat on second day. Age is not an issue but cannot imagine it getting better and should consume rest in the next several months. Needs a long decant. Once you are past the alcohol, it is pleasant enough for just under $20.
