Stephen Tanzer's International Wine CellarSaturated ruby. Expressive, very ripe aromas of cherry liqueur, blackberry, bitter chocolate and printer's ink. Densely packed and almost porty in its sweet display of earthy, musky cherry and plum, with exotic hints of lavender, candied licorice and black pepper. Finishes with building sweetness and a deep, extremely persistent flavor of cherry preserves.
