Review

Glass-staining purple. Powerful aromas of blackcurrant, blueberry, olive tapenade and graphite, with a suave undercurrent of cured tobacco. Fleshy, alluringly sweet black and blue fruit flavors are brightened by smoky Indian spices and given gentle lift by a slow-building mineral quality. The finish repeats the spicy note and hangs on tenaciously.
