APPEARANCE: Deep amber with a cherry wood sheen.
NOSE: A delicate mix of ripe autumnal fruits - notably blackberries and red plums. Rich Oloroso sherry and candied orange segments. Spiced oatmeal biscuits and toasted oak fragrances bring excellent weight and balance.
PALATE: Resolute flavours of fine Oloroso sherry and bitter chocolate sauce, which have been spread liberally over homemade plum pudding. This is all infused with fabulous spicy notes - cinnamon, allspice, and nutmeg. Full-bodied with smooth tannins.
CONCLUSION: Long and lingering.
