Member Notes

by Jerome12201211
A deep dark purplish color with an aroma of ripe dark fruits. Sweet black cherry fruits and smooth texture marked with layers of chocolate making the finish soft and sweet. Excellent taste with a nice blast of pure fruit on the finish. The taste grows more pronounced as it warms with a plush finish.

Inky blackish purple in color.Hints of lavender on the nose. Full body tastes of ripe black cherry, currant, moderate acidity, balanced tannin and underlying notes of cedar and spice on the finish.
