Sitting in Minneapolis doing a real time review with (Billy) of this blog. Dark black cherry hue with intense black cherry and berry nose with crushed dried autumn leaves and spice.
Burning unique palate with bitter mocha and unsweetened fudge, salty, musty flavors that are awkward. I didn't let this breathe and perhaps that will help but...fruit finish.
If this improves with air, I'll note it subsequently. In the $16 price point, raise a glass of something else like Mclaren Vale Tapestry Shiraz.
