Deep brown, almost black. Coffee bean nose, some chocolate, medium bodied, semi-sweet chocolate everywhere, with a tart bakers chocolate note at times. Turns to a sweet burst of wine and cherries, with a coffee undertone. Some alcohol shows through, sweet, strong chocolate covered cherries in the long finish. Very nice.
