Very pure, fresh and tasting of black currant, bilberry and wild berry, with beautifully integrated tannins and vibrant acidity...sappy. Saturates the palate on the lingering finish.
Medicinal raspberry, menthol and sexy smoky oak on the nose...mixing flavors of red berries, spices and menthol...finishing firmly tannic and backward, with notes of menthol, spices and red licorice.
...lightly cooked and caramel-tinged black raspberry and plum as well as high-toned herbal notes, and comes onto the palate broad and beefy, with firm, fine tannins and a strong, chalk-inflicted finish.
Relatively pale, indistinct nose. Round and sweet though not heavy. Relatively refreshing in fact. Racy, lively, lacy.
