Pours a deep dark brown with a thin tan head. Aroma is classic Mexican Cake - spice, cinnamon, roasted nuttiness. Flavor is smooth...clearly the barrel time made this guy round out well. Limited RW flavor, but very nice none the less.

Tan head. Black in color.

The tannins and red wine show a lot. This one is fruity. Very dessert like. The spice and heat shows in the finish. A bit of roast.

Medium to full bodied. Rich.

This one is not as enjoyable as the others. It is good, but different.
