Dusty dark violet color. Fruity aromas and flavors of raspberry liqueur, fruit stripes gum, berry candies, menthol, and anise with a velvety, vibrant, dry-yet-fruity medium-to-full body and a peppery, intricate, medium-long finish displaying accents of sweet cherry-scented tobacco, chocolate sorbet, slate, and black pepper with well-integrated, medium tannins and light oak flavor. An ultra-vibrant fruit bomb with excellent balance and integration of flavors.
