Member Ratings and Notes
There is something here that reminds me of burning plastic. But behind that is chocolate, charred / caramelized fruit, tangerines and preserved fruit. It gets better on the palate because the tropical fruit come through. But its thin and a bit light. Finishes with spice and bitter dark leafy greens.   
Nose is intensely fruity with grapes and prunes, cinnamon and mulling spices. Those spice notes really come out on the palate along with some oak, but there's also a grassy note. The finish is wet hay with some spice. This one has some interesting elements, but doesn't come together all that well.
