Suave, oak-spiced cherry, cassis, floral and exotic spice qualities on the highly perfumed nose. Smoky dark berry, cherry cola, vanilla and bitter chocolate flavors deliver a deft blend of richness and vivacity. The floral and spice notes drive a long, supple finish that features sweet chewing tobacco and cherry notes.
This has a very plush, medium-weight palate with a very smooth, deep array of blueberries and mulberries. The palate has suave, smooth texture and a super fleshy, blue-plum core with smooth, even-paced tannins. Mid-weight and delicious.
...Cassis and coffee flavors combine, with a touch of charred wood...a bit of heat in the finish...
