This drank more like a dessert wine. I was afraid of the no carb before going into this, but it was magnificent. Smelled like caramel nips and booze. Taste wasn't boozy at all though. Intense caramel covered raisins. Toffee pudding. Some more dark fruit. Smooth, sticky and sweet. Definitely a bottle to share despite its size. It's very sweet, but there's a lot of layers to explore with each sip. I wish I had more.

Pours two shades shy of black. Nose expresses raisins, brown sugar and a slightly vinous quality. Taste is sugary and reveals soy sauce, raisins and an oxidized character. Mouthfeel is light-medium with a still carbonation and a fair amount of heat. Overall - not bad, but a bit thin and muddled.
