A vibrant nose of ripe raspberry, cherry liqueur and tobacco introduces this expansive wine with wafts of rose and cinnamon. On the dense palate, blackberry bramble, black currant and clove lead into a long and lingering finish.
“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.”
