Nose
Sour, spicy and earthy; a quality of Pinot Noir. Sour cherry and strawberry. Peach and apricot with lime, grated nutmeg, walnuts and pine. Fizzy cola bottles make my mouth water.
Palate
Darker, sweeter and spicier than the nose. Chocolate brownie with chocolate chips and dried cherries accompanies a mocha with hazelnut syrup. The malt sings through too.
Finish
Drying. Black pepper, usurped by zippy pine and an ashy tannic finish.
Comment
Pinot Noir and chocolate brownies? A winning combination for me.

Nose
Orange cream biscuits, barley water cordial and bitter orange. Something feinty, distant acetate (in a good way – like opening a bag of children's soft sweets).
Palate
Sweetness up front first then the cherry note comes though. Huge hit of orange barley water, then oak tannins mid palate. Steamed milky coffee, but more Ovaltine to it.
Finish
Plenty of spices on the finish, very juicy then tannins pucker the cheeks in.
Comment
Decent stuff here, pretty complex and one to savour for sure.
