Tasting notes

Ripe aromas of black raspberry, plum, and fig jam merge with notes of cocoa, leather, and hints of sweet tobacco. The palate gives way to luscious plum, blackberry, and fig, with sweet smokey notes that ride along velvety tannins with a full mouthfeel. Medium+ acidity and alcohol creates balance and a savory finish.
