NOSE: Sweet and luscious; emanating spice, honey glazed figs, tobacco and Commandaria (sun dried grapes). Christmas at Grandma’s with an oaky kiss.
PALATE: Wickedly rich and oily. A frenzied contradiction of flavours. A fusion of brown sugar, raisons and spicy fruit compote seamlessly rise and then fade on the tongue giving way to sour cherries, grapefruit peel and intense tannin/oak.
FINISH: Amazing length that doesn’t let up. It’s woody bones, raisin skin and tart heartbeat will stay with you long past the final pour. Incredible stuff!
