Tasting Notes:

Iridescent purple-black color, aromas of fresh blackberries and berry jam, with a hint of menthol; on the palate, intriguing flavors of cherries and raspberries, with accents of nutmeg, mace, and lemon crystals; a very firm and long finish will ensure a good pairing with robust cuisine, or a long life in the cellar.
