Well-built and keenly focused, this blend offers an array of flavors, from raspberry jam and dried cherry to spiced cinnamon, loamy mineral and chunky chocolate. The flavors glide toward a plush finish.
Sweet floral notes open up first, followed by a host of pine, menthol and rose petal overtones. At times, the Mars feels ethereal and elusive, yet there is plenty of depth to back things up. To be sure, this eccentric red has plenty to say.
