Gorgeous aromas of pipe tobacco, mint and sweet oak create a full, meaty bouquet when combined with the blasting fruit that's on display. Flavors of blackberry and plum are ripe and refined, while the tannins grab but don't slam at your palate. Textured and chocolaty, with ample freshness. A winner.
