"Brilliant purple. Perfumed aromas of fresh cherry, boysenberry and cola, with a smoky topnote. Lush, round and supple, offering juicy dark fruit flavors that smoothly blend richness with vivacity. A very long, gently tannic finish features persistent dark berry flavors and a touch of peppery spices."
