An opaque core with limpid ruby rim. The nose is very dense and the palate is full-bodied, with an attractive hint of blood orange on the after-taste. Good length.
Smoky, burnt, with lots of dried cherry, apricot, and crushed flower aromatics. Notes of same, with hints of alcohol on the palate. Very enjoyable.
Berry and summer fruit nose, spicy with some herbal hints over floral, voluptuous, minty fruit with violets and a fine tannic backbone and peppery complexity.
