An admirably fresh and subtly spiced red cherry liqueur nose complements round, rich and delicious flavors that offer good weight and concentration while pairing the naturally sweetness of the mid-palate against a sour cherry component, which confers a clean and balanced mouth feel. This is lovely and if a bit fruity, there is depth and style here.

Smooth-textured, supple and rich, with a pleasant fresh earth edge to the blueberry and wild berry flavors, which offer a nice floral scent.
Lightish red with gamey aromas and black and blue berries. Not bad, but kind of uninspired.

This is bottle was much different than the last. Time has mellowed the rough edges this had the last time I tasted it. Sweet cherry and cola flavors. The nose and initial taste are great, but it falls off quickly with little acidity or tannin showing which makes me think it's time to drink up.
