Black raspberry, cherry-cola and floral scents are accented by white pepper and Asian spices. Fresh and focused on the palate, offering vibrant red fruit liqueur flavors and a sexy rose pastille flourish. Shows very good energy and lift on the seamless finish, which features silky tannins and an echo of candied rose.
A funk of truffle and foresty pine resin is joined by orange peel for an inviting and intriguing opening to this wine that is otherwise velvety, structured and intense. Juicy on the finish, it shares flavors of black cherry and black tea.
