'Saturated ruby. Ripe cherry and blackberry on the deeply perfumed nose, complicated by notes of pipe tobacco, violet and candied licorice. Smoky and focused on the palate, offering gently sweet dark berry and floral pastille flavors sharpened by zesty acidity and a peppery nuance. Finishes sappy, gently sweet and very long, offering slow-building tannins and a late hint of cola.'
