Wine Enthusiast 85 points - The initial inhalations expose a moderately spicy, black peppercorn perfume; aeration brings about flax, cooked vegetables, and brown sugar. The platform flavor is intensely cocoa-like, then at midpalate, the taste leaps into deeper cocoa/bittersweet chocolate territory before turning lean and keenly bittersweet, oily and chocolaty in the finish.

Charred wood aromas give it an earthy edge. A thick entry leads to a mildly sweet, moderately full-bodied palate of dark caramel and toasted coconut husks. Finishes with a lash of spicy heat and a charred whiskey barrel note. Pleasant on its own or would make a fine mixer.
