    Black Cherry hue with aromas of bold,stinky dark berries and some funky, off aromas of damp basement. There is a slight suggestion of pomegranate and musty cigar box. Palate--Unique first impression of inky, solid fruit with nice chocolate tinged berry beam mid palate, and a tasty little "something" that again is unique on the finish.
