Complex aromas of dried fruits reminiscent of apricots, dried apple, figs and vanilla bean. All follow through on the palate, along with spice elements and a hint of milk chocolate. Complex, yet approachable.
The smashing bouquet features delightful notes of toasted wheat bread, oatmeal, black raisins, trail mix, roasted chestnuts, bacon fat, sweet butter, ruby Port and prunes. Entry is peppery, moderately sweet and smoky; midpalate features succulent tastes of dark chocolate-covered cherries and strawberries, honey and smoked nuts. Finishes elegantly and clean, with deft traces of smoke and cocoa.
