The bouquet offers a harmony of black cherry and cassis, cedar and clove with a hint of cocoa.
Remarkably even on the palate, the ripe cherry flavors mingle with the character of espresso beans. The tannins provide just enough grip in the finish to indicate that the bottle aging potential should be measured in decades.
