Aromas of leather, flint, toast, menthol and exotic spice come together in the glass along with a floral note. The full-bodied, firmly structured palate offers mature black cherry marinated in spirits, licorice, and coffee alongside assertive, close-grained tannins and bright acidity. A mineral note closes the finish.
