Inky ruby. Powerful, smoke- and spice-accented aromas of cassis and cherry compote are joined by candied licorice and floral nuances. Supple and appealingly sweet, offering plush blueberry and cherry cola flavors and a hint of peppery spices. A vanilla flourish appears on the youthfully tannic finish, which lingers with strong, spicy intensity.
