Deep, very dark ruby red color with purple reflections. Elegantly entwined with fresh fruit aromas of cherry, currant, blueberry, plum jam and cherry liqueur. The scent is long lasting and layered, full of forest fruits, with a subtle note of herbs and the smell of black pepper. The combined subtlety and freshness promote a rich taste in the mouth, roundness, fullness, warmth and softness.
