Deep ruby. Smoke-accented cherry cola, blackberry and floral scents show very good clarity and spicy lift. Broad and chewy in texture, offering ripe dark berry, cherry preserve and licorice flavors and hints of spicecake, vanilla and candied flowers. Closes on an appealingly sweet note, with even tannins and strong, smoky tenacity.
