Aromas of licorice, cardamom and cinnamon take charge on the nose, with blackberry lingering in the background. Additional notes of dark fruit and pomegranate emerge on the palate, alongside warming notes of sarsaparilla, cinnamon, leather and cigar box. The tannins are grippy, but balanced by ample acidity. The long, lingering finish is leathery and packed with currant flavor. Drink after 2022.
