Average Retail
Pure cherry, plum, and boysenberry fruit is pillow-soft, with a complex second layer of cola, cinnamon, oak, clean minerality, and a note of licorice. Finishes smooth, with lingering fine-wine vapors. A delicious, distinctive style that will normally set you back $50+. An exceptional value.
