Pretty aromas of currants, walnuts and fresh tobacco follow through to a full-bodied palate with dusty, chewy tannins and lots of berry, coffee and lightly toasted-oak undertones in the aftertaste.
...flash of menthol leads off, followed quickly by intense cassis, blackberry preserves and plum reduction flavors. Notes of singed alder and cedar score the finish, with the menthol hint peeking back in for an encore. Distinctive.
...scents of kirsch, black raspberries and cassis plus nuances of red roses, pencil shavings, cinnamon stick and wild sage plus a touch of lavender. Medium to full-bodied, the palate offers a gorgeous, plush texture and just enough freshness to lift the generous black and red berry layers to a long, fragrant finish.
...lovely mid-palate pliancy to match its mid-weight structure. Transparent and wonderfully nuanced... Sweet red cherry, red plum, cinnamon, mocha and cedar linger on the soft, open-knit finish.
...classic currant and mulled cherry fruits...plenty of cedarwood, tobacco, and spice aromas and flavors...rich and medium to full-bodied, with some grippy tannins and a classy finish.
