Appearance: Dark and bright cherry color.
Smell: Intense and complex nose, with aromas of red and black berries, spices and hints of vanilla.
Taste: Full-bodied, fleshy and balanced. Spices, toasted flavors and a long lasting finish.
Ultimate Beverage Challenge 93 points - Very sweet fruity aromas and a touch of cherry cola on the nose. A bit of fresh-picked rosemary as well. The palate is dry yet very ripe, with toasted earth and red raspberry fruits dominating. The finish is lengthy, studded with red berries and barrel spice. (Jul 2015)
