4 stars "Color: deep; Aromas: spicy, woody; Sweetness: dry; Body: firm; Finish: persistent; Overall: pleasant; The color of this wine is a deep hue of maroon with a hint of brown. This wine smells musty, dank, old, and woody with a slight hint of fruit and alcohol. Tasting the wine showed me that this was, indeed, a rather dry one. It coated my mouth with a heavy fluffy blanket which is still there. There is a heat that starts of gradually, but lingers a little too long on the finish. There are some slight spicy notes that show with the heat of the alcohol and I can definitely taste a bit of licorice. The wine is pretty tasty, but the weight of the alcohol overpowers it just a bit too much for my palette. Not a bad wine, just not one I'd be crazy about having again."
