" Deep garnet-purple colored, it opens with opulent crème de cassis, Black Forest cake and blueberry compote notes with touches of redcurrant jelly, eucalyptus, dried rose petals and Chinese five spice plus a waft of tree bark. Full-bodied, rich and decadently fruited, the voluptuous black fruits are beautifully framed by firm, velvety tannins and a lively line, finishing very long with compelling exotic spice layers."
