This pours an attractive dark purple color, with a full pink head that looks pretty and enticing. The aromas and flavors are dark and pure, with cassis leading the way but complemented by vinous hints of blackberry, licorice and sour funk. Medium-plus carbonation keeps the palate fresh and lively, ending clean and refreshing. A nice beach day or poolside sipper.
