Deep, bright red. Expressive, spice-accented scents of ripe cherry, raspberry liqueur and fresh flowers. On the palate, juicy red berry and perfumed rose pastille flavors are accented by licorice and white pepper. Finishes on a tangy red fruit note,
International Wine Cellar(2005 Vintage) Ruby-red. Ripe, gamey dark berry scents, with hints of aged beef, licorice and lavender. Rich cassis and cherry flavors show very good sweetness and are deepened by candied licorice and sweet mocha. Impressively lush and creamy on the finish, which features a bright raspberry note.
