You should know what you're getting yourself into here, as the name definitely doesn't lie. So minty and herbaceous it's almost hard to believe, and it all mingles with notes of crushed violets and black currant leaf as well as a solid fruit core of cassis and black plum skins. It's firm and tight in the mouth but approachable after a little breathing time.
