Other reviews...
Concentrated raisins, dried black dates, licorice, prunes, chocolate and Christmas spices. Extremely sweet, but effortlessly balanced, with real intensity and concentration. Some complex cocoa beans, coffee, licorice and walnuts in the finish. Pour yourself a small glass and savor.

Singed black sesame, rye, buckwheat honey, Black Forest cake and blackberry reduction notes form a large-scaled core, with a viscous texture and a long, palate-coating finish. A light echo of peanut toffee adds just enough cut on the finish. Drink now.

James Molesworth - Wine Spectator

A wonderfully balanced and giving wine with sweet raisin and prune aromas and an overall richness akin to crude oil. Flavors of baked black plum, brown sugar and molasses are both juicy and rich, and then toffee and mocha take over on the finish. Sweet and thick for sure, but with discernible fruit and vitality.
