(From «nv» Vintage) Good dark red. Cherry liqueur, raspberry, licorice, peppery spices and menthol on the expressive nose. Juicy and downright gulpable, with light spicy lift and a hint of exotic orange zest lifting the black and red fruit flavors. Tastes lighter than its 14.4% would suggest. The dry, intense finish features fine, light tannins and a distinctly savory quality to the cherry and dark berry flavors.
