Nose
Thick with masses of wood varnish, baked and dried fruits, toffee apple and nutmeg given some lift by lemon peel.
Palate
Wet flowers, thick. This one does need water which adds to the substance and gives a little tannic grip. Develops into butterscotch and red fruit coulis.
Finish
Honeyed and sweet.
Comment
Balanced and with good energy.

Nose
Sherry. Earthy. Wet leaves. Mushrooms. Some mustiness. Old leather saddle. A hint of sulphur. Slowly opens on sweeter notes. Coffee and toffee.
Palate
Sweet and smooth. More toffee. Nice spicy festoon.
Finish
Fresh with liquorice.
Comment
The palate is sweeter than the nose. A pleasant sherry character. Well balanced. Oak is well mastered.
