"Stewed fruits and prunes on the nose are adjoined with charcoal, honey, and a meaty, barbecued profile. The palate opens big, with black pepper and campfire, leading into toffee, dark chocolate covered raisins, mineral notes, and syrupy honey. The lovingly long finish offers the warm embrace of a dear friend, with resonating honey sweetness as well as touches of spice, pepper, and vanilla."
