Ripe black fruit aromas pour from the glass followed by notes of spice, cocoa, black tea and hibiscus. The full bodied palate is dense with the flavors of cocoa, blackberry and brown sugar, carried on smooth tannins and supple texture. The flavors of tea, mocha and cherries carry through on the long finish.
