The aromatics are bold offering scents of bark and roots, cedar, coriander, anise, rosemary, jasmine, and thyme with hints of tarragon and green tea. Rich and sweet with a bright peppery balance. A classic.

The bouquet is vibrant, prickly, and displays cedar, coriander, cardamom, aniseed, jasmine, rosemary, sage, basil and other botanicals. The palate is lushly textured, herbal sweet, peppery, and minerally. Sublime aftertaste.
