"Opaque ruby. Pungent, spice- and smoke-accented cherry, blackberry and succulent herb aromas are complemented by licorice and floral nuances. Gently chewy and focused on the palate, offering energetic bitter cherry, dark berry and spicecake flavors that deepen through the back half. Finishes taut, spicy and long, with gently firming tannins and a lingering cherry pit note."
