It was awesome. I'm a wine newby - so I don't have all the fancy words. I'll give you my top of mind. Loved it. Hint of raisin finish. The tastes were rich and deep. Like silk met fruit met chocolate met raisin. Now it sounds horrible doesn't it. Well, its my lack of ability to describe. Let me put it to you this way - I have no regrets about buying it and will be purchasing more soon. I especially enjoyed some after chocolates with good friends. And isn't that and important part of life?
