A strong spicy meat and smoky aroma adds interest to the mulled boysenberry and blackberry fruit core. Dark fruit flavors continue in the mouth, where licorice, plum sauce, cigar box spice and a touch of black olive also unfold to add depth to the palate. Firm but fine tannins and a long finish seal the deal nicely.
