Brilliant ruby. Powerful smoke- and spice-accented cherry and red berry scents take a darker turn and pick up a floral nuance with air. Smooth and smoky on the palate, offering bitter cherry and rose pastille flavors plus hints of vanilla and licorice. The long, gently tannic finish repeats the cherry note.
