Tasting Notes

Nose

Intense. Oaky and earthy. Heavily sherried. Damp cider cellar. Humus. Hint of mushrooms. Bitter marmalade. Dried apples. Touch of nutmeg.

Palate

Sweet at first then the oak grip makes it very astringent. Bitter chocolate and marmalade again. Wood is overwhelming.

Finish

Dry, astringent with a sweet aftertaste.

Comment

Probably a sherry first fill. The wood is the leader. Fruit is in an oaky cage. I know some people love it that way. I look for more balance.
