Review

Glass-staining purple. Pungent, exotic aromas of dark berry preserves, olive, lavender and smoky Indian spices. Stains the palate with intense blueberry and mulberry flavors, picking up notes of bitter chocolate and spicecake with aeration. Finishes juicy and focused, with alluring sweetness and excellent persistence.
