“The wine opens with raspberry covered chocolates, supported by high-toned notes of sweet lime pith. An exotic spiciness pervades, illuminating old spice, black pepper, Chinese five spice, and vanilla, followed by herbal tinctures of sarsaparilla and cola. The palate is supple and generous providing flavors of confectionary cherry and cassis, which are supported by structural notes of cedar, sandalwood, and sweet marzipan; leading to a lingering finish.
