Enticing aromas of blueberry jam, red currant, and plum, with touches of violets, sweet chocolate, anise, and soft caramel. Warm and luscious on the palate, with black currant, cooked plum, and cola-berry flavors, over black licorice and mocha notes. Smooth tannins and earthy spice on the finish. Delicious.
