Dark plum and black currant lead into aromas of cardamom, pencil shavings and cocoa. On the palate, a deep core of black cherry, tea and cola is buttressed by grainy tannins.
“A complex bouquet evokes ripe red and blue fruits, exotic spices, cola and succulent herbs, and a hint of smokiness builds in the glass. Densely packed yet lively, offering intense black raspberry, boysenberry, candied rose and cola flavors that turn sweeter through the midpalate. Finishes very long and smooth, with sneaky tannins framing lingering dark berry preserve and floral pastille notes.”
