This was a fun wine to try. 19.1% abv. Bottled in 1998. Purple in color with some ruby hues, mostly opaque and bright. The nose has cherries, black cherries and some alcohol note. Viscous texture. Tannins all resolved. On the palate, this is sweet but not cloying. Lots of black cherry fruit. Warm on the finish but otherwise very smooth. Tasty and a nice way to end an evening. It does have many Cab qualities but also some Port notes, too. It appears they used to produce this every vintage, but only once since 2004.
