Tasting Notes

"There's a good mixture of orchard fruits and barrel spices on the nose with a little hint of dried herbs. The palate is straight forward with the fruit becoming a little waxy and the barrel spices taking over. The finish shows a little dark chocolate and dried berries with vanilla sprinkled on top."
