Interesting looking at the bottle as its very dark amber color and cloudy. Thick like syrup when poured. Nose like petrol.
Based on the nose I thought this might be flawed or dead.
Brown sugar, apricots, honey, hints of strawberries, menthol and very sweet. I read someplace that it was was picked at 55 brix. 8.7% alc.

Overall I do not mind this. Needs something bleu cheese or something salty to offset some of the sweetness. Will drink the rest over the course of the week to see what happens.
