Either you’re going to love this or hate this. For me the first glass was great, but then the alcohol and sweetness got to me.
Positives: The dominant note is Hubba Bubba grape chewing gum, followed by Maltesers, raisins and plums. Full body, mild tannins, good acidity and a fairly long length.
Negatives: The heat from the 15% alcohol.
Drink now or over the next 2 years on its own or pair it with BBQ ribs.
