Tasting Notes

Notes of strawberry, cherry, mushroom, baking spices, and clove are lifted from the glass. This leads into powdered white sugar, vanilla, blackberry, and cinnamon notes on the palate with smooth tannins and medium acidity. A long finish persists with caramel red apple, tobacco, and cola qualities.
