A solid core of expressive dark red fruit opens up in the glass, followed by sweet floral and minty notes develop over time.
This has a spicy, earthy almost cheesy character to it. Meats too. Decadent. Full body, chewy tannins and a juicy finish.
Ample cherry, blackberry and sweet spice flavors define this red, with a firm underlying band of tannins.
Red fruits, smoke, tobacco and menthol on the nose, accented by a note of black pepper. A bit more medicinal and brooding than the normale but still with lovely sweetness to the musky strawberry and redcurrant flavors.
On the lighter side but persists to a long finish without being demonstrative.
