A dark, opaque, rich ruby red color. So rich in color it almost stains the glass. A very fruit forward nose. Cranberries and black currents with a hint of tobacco, anise and mint leaf. On the mouth, the black currants dominate the palate with dried cranberries and raspberries following as secondary flavors. A peppermint finish with traces of tobacco and vanilla. Bright acidity balances well with the tannins.
