Glass-staining ruby. Complex bouquet of dried cherry, licorice, potpourri and minerals, with a suave smoky accent. Very sweet and creamy in texture, offering intense dark fruit flavors that gain power and spiciness with air. Picks up notes of chewing tobacco and vanilla on the back end and finishes with excellent energy and lingering sweetness. (JR)
