Rich, enticing aromatics of toasty vanillin oak mingle with vine-ripened blackberries and a kiss of coconut. A silken entry exposes the luscious blend of currant, blackberry, and dark cherry with hints of raspberry and blueberry. Cedary oak notes caress the layers of fruit as the long finish exposes traces of cocoa and espresso. Alc. 14.4％
