Pick of the month!

Nose: Big and robust with a lot of toffee and caramel candy, along with a bounty of red fruit, and Christmas cake & ginger biscuits. Quite a lot of sherry is going on here, with a lot of wood, and wood spice (cinnamon, clove, nutmeg), musty dunnage warehouses and hints of sour wine vinegar.

Palate: Lovely mouth feel on this one: sweeter than the nose, with a big dollop of sherry , thick sultana juices, big caramel candy, toffeed  apples, Xmas cakes – it has got it all. Sweet, hedonistic and chew able, with an additional note of pepper, wood spices, and mint. Juicy. Oily.

Finish: Bitter sweet, with BBQ-ed banana (a little burnt maybe), dry oak, wood tannins, earth.
