Retrained and elegant. Broad soft fruits,dried cherry,polished oak with a spicy tingle. Light resin,roasted pepper/sun-dried tomato.

Nutty and oaky which loosens into butterscotch and then nuts ,then toasty cedar. Papery,then date like fruit before it starts to grip.
Finish
Firm and nutty.

Superb nose,but a little dry on the tongue. Still...!
