Previously available for $24.00
Coffee bean, black plum, deep, carob, herbal, black raspberry, clear and fresh with lovely herbal and floral, almost iris base notes, rich on entry, soft, a bit more dried fruit character than with the Volpi, very broad on the palate, though remaining transparent, this has really vivid coffee, chocolate and carob accents over the core of plummy, slightly pruny fruit, finishes with a dusting of wood tannin adding a little mouth grab and lingering boysenberry fruit, quite bordelaise, black cherry works it's way into the backend, the finish shows a lovely set of almost stemmy notes adding complexity and a little chewy black cherry skin. 89pts
