Tasting notes

Open the bottle and seductive aromas of blackberry and cherry sail out, straight to the heart.  Dark purple flavors lead to a smooth, silky package of plum, black cherry, blueberry and blackberry that lasts on the palate.  Bright cherry, blackberry and cocoa powder are featured on the forever and beyond finish.
