Rich, succulent flavors of wild berry are ripe and plush...with cedary tannins and an element of palo santo, along with tobacco, dried herb and green tea notes that are firm on the finish, as more grace notes reveal themselves.
Expressive, smoke- and spice-accented cherry, blackcurrant and floral oil scents are complemented by suggestions of cured tobacco and licorice. Sweet, seamless and penetrating on the palate, offering intense bitter cherry, dark berry and savory herb flavors that take a sweeter turn with air. Shows excellent focus and a touch of smokiness on the long, gently chewy finish, which features repeating florality and slow-building tannins.
...cedar and spice that’s overlaid on ripe blackcurrant, red plum and cherry. Pepper and cocoa powder, too...palate has a sinewy feel with intense summer berries and plums, as well as strong blackcurrant character.
Some cool, mentholated notes lead the way, closely followed by cassis and blackberries, then hints of vanilla and cedar on the finish...medium to full-bodied, and generally pretty silky in feel, with a gentle dusting of drying tannins.
