"Youthful violet. Red and blue fruit liqueur aromas are complicated by suggestions of licorice, smoky minerals and star anise. Primary blueberry and black raspberry flavors deepen on the back half while maintaining vivacity. Round, slow-building tannins frame an impressively long, smooth finish that leaves a juicy blue fruit note behind."
