"The nose offers both vanilla bean and pudding, as well as candy corn, spearmint and sour cherries. The palate begins somewhat soft and mellow, with caramel and cinnamon-dusted coffee cake, and moves towards tannic oak and leather at the back. The finish comes on stronger, with a lingering rich sweetness of dark chocolate alongside black pepper."
