Smooth and inviting, with attractive licorice and vanilla aromas to the core scents of blackberry and dark plum. Very ripe, with an outpouring of plum and black cherry flavors. This ripe bomber delivers a lot of guts and gusto, and the finish is full of staying power. A nice discovery. It's 70-30 in favor of Cab Franc.
