(Great Value,Tried & True Award)- Harvest gold/honey color. Lots of animated scents, including malted barley, bread dough, newly tanned leather, pipe tobacco, amontillado sherry, marshmallow. Flavors highlight the sherry aspect, making the midpalate winey, slightly toasted, lightly smoked, and full of dried fruits, especially quince, apricot. Long, creamy, warming finish.
