"The nose is vibrant and bright, with grapes in the form of brandy and jelly, a floral bouquet punctuated by violets, as well as walnuts, and herbaceous notes of rosemary and thyme. The palate is jammy, showcasing raspberry dark chocolate truffles and lemon zest. The finish offers spiced mulled wine, as well as mint, cacao nibs and leather."
