Review and Tasting


Sampled on 08/12/2012

Appearance:

Clear deep golden amber.

Aroma:

Dried fruit and peach skin bursts forth with cream-of-soda vanilla and vanilla fudge. Strong pear drops, subtle hazelnut and ginger snap biscuits emerge with water.

Taste:

Initial sweetness is quickly countered by bitter tannins and salty notes. Juicy apple, hazelnuts, orange zest and toasted coconut.

Aftertaste:

Long cinnamon spiced finish with lingering brine.
