Opens with aromas of cherry pie filling, blackberry jam, milk chocolate, and some exotic lavender, clove, cardamom, and minty notes. Repeats on the palate with a touch of black pepper. Unfortunately, there is too much residual sugar so the wine is jammy and off-balance. There is moderate acidity and tannins, but it is not enough to counteract all that sweetness. Seems a touch soupy and medicinal too. Give this a light chill and pair it with spicy meat dishes.
