REVIEWS: "Vivid magenta. Displays fresh raspberry, cherry and floral scents that are complemented by a suave lavender nuance. Vibrant, mineral-tinged red/blue fruit and allspice flavors show very good clarity and a building floral note. The penetrating and gently tannic finish hangs on with strong tenacity and leaves a sweet boysenberry note behind."
