"Vivid purple. Heady, oak-accented cherry preserve, blackberry, cola and coconut scents are energized by a jolt of spicy cracked pepper. Alluringly sweet and expansive, offering palate-staining dark fruit, spicecake and mocha flavors and a suave floral pastille nuance. Shows impressive vivacity for its brawn, and finishes very long, smooth and smoky, featuring repeating coconut and blue fruit character and harmonious tannins that come in late. - Josh Raynolds"
