Mildly herbal black-fruit aromas carry notes of tea and bell pepper, but it's not decidedly vegetal. The palate is full but carries some acidic snap, and the flavors of blackberry, black cherry, chocolate and Chinese plum sauce are good. Finishes with an espresso coffee-bitter bite and some woodiness.
