In the glass, it reveals a translucent garnet robe, inviting exploration of its intricate aromas. The bouquet is a harmony of blood orange, boysenberry, and freshly bloomed violets. As it caresses the palate, its voluptuous texture gives way to a symphony of flavors. Bergamot, wild cherry, and crushed pomegranate seeds intermingle, while subtle hints of sage add complexity.
