Dark violet. Displays intense blueberry and cherry liqueur flavors, along with hints of exotic spices, candied flowers and olive. Round and fleshy but energetic as well, offering sappy black and blue fruit and spicecake flavors that are braced by a core of smoky minerality. The floral note repeats on the gently tannic finish, which lingers with tight focus and resonating spiciness. 25% new oak.
