Absolutely lovely smell of red berries, maraschino cherries and grapes. Can't sense much else but honestly it has such a fine aroma I'm not mad. Pleasantly sweet on the tongue without cloying, the taste almost reminds me of chocolate covered cherries followed by the berries from the smell.The expert Review identified the berry as raspberry but I'm not entirely sold I'd narrow it down to that. Towards the mid palate you can taste some nice French Vanilla taste. The finish is magnificent with a nice oak and spicy finish that lingers without being unpleasant. Great price point too!
