Justin Obtuse Paso Robles 2011 Cabernet Dessert Red Wine

The family Christmas party
always presents a challenge as to what to bring;
this year my contribution was Justin winery's dessert wine
and chocolates. Hopefully the 375ml bottle will satisfy the few non tea toddlers willing to give it a try.

Justin Obtuse Paso Robles 2011 Cabernet Dessert Red Wine, $8.49-$9.99, 84 points, poured a dark ruby grading toward a bright red at the broad clear wine ring and the heavily tear-burdened glass bowl.
Pungent cherry syrup smells drowned-out, except for licorice, more subtle aromas.
Heavy-bodied dessert wine carried bright acidity and rather firm tannin, but the flavors were barely fair, and those only with my pecan pie.
Finished very long with a 15.9% alcohol kick, spice, and the trailing palate.
Sadly, I wasn't satisfied.
