“Ripe, spice-accented cherry and boysenberry scents, along with hints of woodsmoke, mocha and camphor. Fleshy and seamless in texture, offering gently sweet dark berry, mint and spicecake flavors that become livelier with aeration. Closes smooth and smoky, featuring repeating cherry character and gentle tannins that come in late.”
