The Apothic website describes Dark as tasting like coffee and chocolate.
Did someone say coffee?
In a round about way I would agree with that assessment but I think they left out some adjectives like heavy and deep.
This wine has the specific gravity of an intergalactic black hole from which no light can enter into nor escape from.
My 5 (fluid) ounce serving weighed 104 pounds but it was damn good with baked salmon.
So good that we killed the bottle in one night.
Xavier said it gave me penguin mouth but I say it was his wine goggles.

Penguin mouth? I have enjoyed this wine, have even sidled up to my wife during and afterwards. And she has never accused me of penguin mouth. Is that anything like duck lips?
Hi Emilio! Penguin mouth is a a term I made up to describe the way dark red wine turns your teeth purple – like the Penguin (Danny DeVito) in Batman Returns. 🙂
