Deep purple color. Oaky aromas of mocha latte, blueberry coffee cake, sticky date pudding, and cherry-cola with a velvety, crisp, fruity medium body and a silky, appealing, medium-long berry compote and licorice finish with heavy oak flavor. A bold and fruity GSM blend with toasty, espresso-like oak notes.
