Saturated purple color. Initially fresh and bright: cola, raspberry, cherry and mint then darker olive, blackberry, game and dried herbs. Sweet and savory flavors intertwine nicely on palate – blackcurrant, black pepper, sweet tobacco leaf – drier than the nose suggests. Maintains floral inner mouth perfume. Elegantly framed structure, expanding nuanced finish.
