Tasting Notes

"The nose offers toffee, oak, and peanut butter fudge, with dark berries and grapes. The palate is smooth, with vanilla and toffee leading into brown sugar and cinnamon, with plums, prunes, baking spices, and more berries. The finish is at first sweet, giving way to tart fruits, grapey residue, and oaky spice."
