"Lurid violet. Potent black currant, cherry and cedary oak scents are complicated by pipe tobacco, candied rose and cracked pepper nuances. Chewy and focused on the palate, offering concentrated dark berry, bitter cherry and succulent herb flavors plus a hint of smokiness. Delivers a solid punch of flavor and comes off surprisingly lithe for its heft. Finishes with mounting tannins, a jolt of peppery spices and strong, floral-driven persistence."
