Pancake syrup poured on sandpaper: Medium transparent brown ruby with wide garnet edges. Big huge flabby Syrah fruit, ridiculously sweet with a side helping of pine pitch, canned frosting and alcohol burn–nose and mouth, all arranging itself in a way that compliments the acrid background feigning itself off as dusty oak and wet cardboard, but honestly providing greatly needed padding for the ridiculously sweet fruit in the mouth. Oh my God I don’t think I’ve ever tasted a flabbier sweeter more contrived disgusting pinot noir in my life make it go away. Memo to resty serving Goldeneye, Belle Glos, Twomey, En Route, etc.: This is WAAAAY cheaper and will have the *blackberry-jam-nice-earthy-notes-let’s-get-drunk* crowd swooning.
