Ridiculous wine in a ridiculously heavy bottle. Concentrated, sure, but hugely overripe, confected, alcoholic (15.5% abv and it shows) and unbalanced, designed to impress Parker and his followers. Flavours are like cherry cola and mocha chocolates. Almost undrinkable....actually, could not finish a glass...the rest went down the drain. Glad I didn't pay for this. $35? A joke. Well, I guess that there are fans of this. Tasted April2017.
