Review and Tasting

Sampled on 22/01/2013

Appearance

Red garnet.

Aroma

Earthy, spicy, wine aroma with quinine and cinnamon.

Taste

Complex and velvety, fruity, yet spicy and slightly bitter with quinine, camphor, liquorice, tar, rose, dried fruit and eucalyptus.

Aftertaste

Lingering quinine, tobacco, liquorice, clove and cinnamon leave a dry finish rather than the sweet fruitiness of regular dessert wines.
