Tasting Notes

"Honey roasted peanuts and agave show up first on the nose, with milk chocolate covered berries, and tropical fruits highlighted by mango. The palate offers fruit salad in sugary syrup, grilled pineapples, and mint. Towards the back, the wood spice and tannins of the French oak make their presence felt, leading into a vegetal and grassy finish, with bitter lemon pith and char-blistered peppers. "
