"Aromas of mixed berry jam and baking spices such as clove and allspice to begin with followed by more fruit and spice. The palate gets a brief reprieve on these notes on the mid-palate with vanilla, wet tobacco, and honey, but then reverts back to finish with more spices and berries. Must love Port! "
