The results from the first year and an explanation of the TAA is here.
I have tried this wine once already but will withhold my TN until I try it a 2nd time this weekend.
Since geo t. was so anxious to post on this wine, I copied his TN and will post it below as the first entry:
From geo t.:
$15.99, 15.5% alc.: Dark garnet, not quite inky; big charred oak, root beer, chocolate, candied multi-dark berry and tar nose with overtones of something like menthol that makes me cough the first time I take a good whiff. Maybe it's ethanol, I don't know. Flavors echo loudly, with an obvious alcoholic bite. Too much heat and oak for this taster. I'm somewhat oak tolerant, but this is a travesty.
