Vibrant, glass-staining purple colour. Aromas of blackberry, blueberry, cured meat, smoke, tar, cocoa, vanilla, and nutmeg. Lots of ripe fruit on the palate, with some dark cherry notes emerging, balanced by smoke, vanilla, and baking spices. Good body, with medium acidity and tannins, and a velvety mouthfeel. Decent length, finishing with blackberry, cocoa, and smoke.
