Ruby red, completely translucent color. Smelling of plum, tobacco, leather, raspberry, and fresh green tea leaves. Solid palate presence with raspberry, cranberry, cherry, plum, cinnamon and cardamom. Finish is medium in length. This is a real success and I slightly prefer this to the recent Kosta Brownes Michael has made. This is just pure fun to drink with no trace of heat or overblowness. Kudos to Steven and Michael.
