Tasting Notes

Nose

Ripe and sweet with dried fruits, nuts and candied peel shifting into marmalade, persimmon. Shows good balance with a sweet blackberry note cut with saddle soap.

Palate

Once again, really piercing concentration which goes into a mix of dry, crisp oak this time with cigar leaf, oak and sandalwood.

Finish

Red grape skin, redcurrant tartness.

Comment

Good, but again not quite the extra dimension that's needed.
