This drinks like a rabid wildebeest! Entirely untame, rough and enormous like a stone wall. Having said that, it is an interesting specimen indeed. The nose is stark with cedarwood, fresh ground black pepper, nail varnish, campfire, lead, and perhaps chili-laden black plum. The palate is monstrous, with some black plum soaked in tar, massive tannin, strong acid, and a full yet fatless; bodybuilder physique. Interesting stuff, but hardly drinkable for the majority. But at $23, I'm enjoying it!
