Deep crimson-ruby colored, this possesses an intoxicating nose of wild blackberries, mountain blueberries, and black currants, with scents of crushed black roses, brambles, sweet tobacco, violets, cracked pepper and oriental incense. The medium full-bodied black and blue fruit flavors are deep and vivid, permeated with licorice, bittersweet chocolate, dark roast coffee beans and basaltic minerals. The saturation continues on the back with sensations of macerated berries, roasted nuts, and crème de cassis, followed by a burst of blueberry juice and dustings of clove and recurring cracked pepper on the lingering ripe, sweetish tannin finish.
