Sweet licorice, chocolate and tobacco at first. Opens up with blueberries, dark plums and a steely mineral core. Full and really smooth texture. Velvety tannins and a wonderful long finish with a very attractive fruit.
Fleshy, with lots of intense blackberry, plum and boysenberry notes blended together and wound with licorice strips and singed alder wood.
...oodles of sweet black raspberry, camphor and black currant along with some forest floor and roasted herbs. Super-fruity, opaque ruby/purple, medium to full-bodied, hedonistic and lush...
Juicy, sappy and rather stylish, combining peppery herb nuances with sweet chocolatey black fruit. Neither hugely concentrated nor particularly complex, but silky and insidious long, finishing with suave tannins.
