"Aromas of sherry, dark chocolate, caramel, and pine make for a very complex nose. The palate doesn't disappoint, with sherry leading the way. Cinnamon and tangerine notes arise, as the caramel provides a silky background. The finish is joined by a touch of smoke and some juicy fruit, for a well-rounded close. "
