Rich and lovely, this wild-blackberry liqueur is reminiscent of fresh fruit warmed in the sun. A concentrated, nearly opaque plum hue, the earthy, ripe fruit flavor builds with repeated sips. Dash a bit into a bubbly drink like a Kir, or serve as a dessert pairing with dark chocolate.

The bouquet offers intense bramble, but scant fruit fragrances. The palate entry is rich and concentrated with a deep blackberry taste; by midpalate the tastes becomes stony, ripe, preserves-like and ripe-sweet. Finishes jammy and ripe.
