Tasting Notes

Nose

Rich and earthy, right back in to winter and warm fires and hot chocolate. Tweed bolts and woollen jumpers. Chocolate dates and mince pie mix – heavy on the sherry. Toasted hazelnuts and walnuts.

Palate

Plump sultanas, dark chocolate and chilli with mince pie mix. Rich, dark fruits. Mulled wine edge – big red wine and cinnamon spice.

Finish

Ricotta cheese and fresh plums, there is a very gentle hint of smoke at the end.

Comment

Quite a stunner. One to keep in the cabinet until the weather turns a little colder, but great stuff.
