It's 13% alcohol. Not sure if I'm just not able to describe the taste. It didn't taste like super high alcohol content, that was just the closest experience I had. The port I've had and enjoyed is 20% for example and it didn't have this feeling. With the port, it was like the flavors masked and blended with the alcohol hints at the end where as in the beginning with this bord, there was no real taste/flavor presenting at all for the first glass and a half.
I just didn't know if this was my taste being unaccustomed to wine, or if it was the wine itself that opened up vs my taste buds.
Thanks everyone do far for your insight, keep it coming!
