    Nose
    The fruits tend towards berry fruits, which are still somewhat sour. Also something like this Em-eukal wild cherry candy. A hint of a mixture of herb and flower meadows. Plus lots of dark wood notes, darkened chocolate cake and tobacco.
    Taste
    Dark caramel. Roasted almonds. Again these wild cherry sweets. In the mouth, the influences of wood and bitter notes are even stronger, but never uncomfortable. Tobacco and leather. Tree bark. Warm sawdust.
    Finish
    China bark. Dark chocolate. Grape skins. Roasted notes.
