Aromas of boysenberry and black cherry jump from the glass and intermix with toasty nuances of caramel and marzipan. After a few minutes, nuances of black cherry and sweet pipe tobacco appear. Juicy ﬂavors of black raspberries, fresh cranberries and boysenberry come forward, combined with deeper notes of cola and mocha. The silky, ﬁne tannins ﬂesh out on the spicy ﬁnish of black and white pepper, all framed by refreshing acidity and superb balance.
