Deep yet fresh aromas of soft baking spices blend with ripe raspberry, black cherry, vanilla bean, and light toast. The first sip fills your palate as cherry melds with dried cranberry, ginger and dried herbs, leading to a clean finish brimming with berry, cola and grated nutmeg.
Interesting facts: This is the third vintage of Calliope that all varietals are 100% Callaway estate fruit and 100% aged in our new Foudre.
