Ripe raspberries, sage, anise seed, fennel, cinnamon and vanilla on the nose. Bright blackberry, rich coffee/chocolate, vanilla with cedar and crushed gravel on the finish. Very smooth entry, rich mid-palate that builds to a broad, dense finish.
Focused and deep, offering an array of licorice, blueberry, vanilla and currant that intermingles with a variety of spices such as mint and sage. Flavors of black fruits and cassis wound beautifully together with black cherry, dark chocolate and espresso. A nicely structured mid palate leads to a supple and sleek finish.
