NOTES: 
Chocolate & prune nose. Thick to eye & mouth. Dr. Pepper on the sip + chocolate from the nose. Maybe cola but that prune addition says "Doc P."

Slurping adds a silky pepperiness backed by a bit of wine cask. Then a citrus fuzzy freshness which extends to finish; meeting there a later to the dance almond extract.

Well-rounded & well-balanced notes of excellent nuance. Uncomplicated complexities well shy of a clamor but well 'nuff to keep interested. A well-orchestrated unfurling of profile characteristics.

FINAL GRADE: A-
A 90-100 B 80-89 C 70-79 D 60-69 F 0-59
