Aromas of cassis, dried cranberry and black cherry are backed by tobacco and a kick of licorice. The palate is ripe in raspberry, blueberry and black cherry, showing whispers of leather and white pepper. The tannins add balance, mellowing some of the ripeness. Currant and vanilla show on the medium-length finish.
