Aromas of tobacco, baking spices, black cherry and cassis come out on the nose. It is silky and extracted on the palate, leading with flavors of blackberry and black cherry baked in a pie, followed by black currant, tobacco, and mocha. This is round, soft, opulent, layered with rich, elegant fruit and other flavors. Drink with fine filet. Very Highly Recommended. 95 points. DBH
