Deep amber with a cherry wood sheen. 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. Resolute flavors of fine Oloroso sherry and bitter chocolate sauce, which has been spread liberally over homemade plum pudding. This is all infused with fabulous spicy notes - cinnamon, allspice and nutmeg. Full bodied with smooth tannins.
The deep amber hue and enticing toffee and cigar wrapper aromas hint at what's to come. The palate opens big and luscious, echoing toffee along with cocoa and leather, drying into an exceedingly long, complex finish that resounds with dried date, fig and cherry plus dusty cinnamon and cayenne spice.
