Enticing aromas of dried red currant, brambly blackberry and vanilla delight the senses. An impressive concentration of flavors offer waves of sweet raspberry, blackberry and boysenberry pie, enriched by notes of sweet tobacco, pepper and hints of cola. Silky, plush tannins float through the lingering finish, balanced by light touch of acidity.
