From the vivid hue one senses the delight to follow: a dusty dark, blue-fruit nose of considerable proportion yields to dried plums, antique roses, bittersweet cocoa and a compendium of sweet mixed spices. There’s also a bit of a bold black pepper note to the aroma and taste yet the flavors are plush with a velvet interior –overall the impression is one of rounded elegance.
