look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Beautiful ruby red/amber/copper color.

Smell is funky, musty, grape, boozy, sweet, spicy and earthy

Mouthfeel is very very thin, surprisingly thin

Taste is sweet, funky, winey, metallic, slight spice or every so slight burn from alcohol.

Overall: keeping this review pretty simple and to the point: it's just okay. Not great, not horrible. If this is supposed to be aged for 10 years, I don't see it happening. In my opinion, it's on the downward slope, but maybe it's on the upswing in a few years. Overall, slightly disappointed, but certainly drinkable.
