Wine Enthusiast Review
Power and grace combine in this great fortified wine. Already 10 years old, it will age gracefully through at least 2030 if kept in a cool cellar. The aromas combine ripe, vivid cherry and blackberry with caramel accents. Flavors are very ripe but tangy at the same time, echoing plum jam and toffee on the finish.
Aromas of cherry vanilla cola, spirits, leather, dried plums, green thistle, and anise. The taste is smooth and velvety, but with brandy and grip, cardoon, and lingering tannins, exotic notes of Fuyu persimmon; an aftertaste of Pink Lady apple.
