Opaque black to the eye, this is a massive, high-alcohol, syrupy Garnacha that is more like Port than dry wine. Aromas of prune and raisin dominate, while the palate is thick as molasses, with gummy, raisiny flavors that finish with heady notes of coffee and chocolate syrup. At 16% ABV, and with outlandish weight and stickiness, this isn't what you'd call a food-friendly table wine.
