Tasting Notes

Dark red. Blackberry, cherry-vanilla and pungent flowers on the fragrant nose and in the mouth. Lush, open-knit dark berry flavors become spicier with air, picking up notes of candied lavender and coconut. Supple and seamless on the clinging finish, which shows appealing sweetness and a hint of licorice.
