Review and Tasting

Sampled on 12/04/2015

Appearance

Clear, burgundy red with ruby glints.

Aroma

Ripe blueberries, raspberries, prunes and red wine with dried cranberries, juicy red bell pepper, quinine and paprika spice.

Taste

Light-bodied yet rich with comforting red wine, underlying spicy, rooty, earthy bitterness and hints of liquorice, burnt coffee and bitter chocolate.

Aftertaste

Red pepper corn spice and quinine bitterness builds through the fruity finish, balancing and preventing this moderately rich aperitif becoming cloying.

Overall

Rich wine and red berry fruitiness with delicate underlying herbal complexity.
