"Deep ruby. Ripe black and blue fruit and licorice pastille aromas are brightened and given a spicy edge by a hint of cracked pepper. Supple and sweet on the palate, offering warm blueberry and cherry cola flavors and a touch of mocha. In a plush, open-knit style, closing on a gently tannic note with good breadth and fruity persistence." (VM)

"Aromas of blackberry, iron and spice. Mushroom too. Full-bodied, juicy and rich with a long finish. Soft and flavorful. Drink or hold." (JS)
