Tasting Notes
Robert KarlssonBig dry raisin. A bit sourly perhaps? Tastewise all on raisin, figs. Spicy, dry. But a little sourly? Not the old kind, this.. I suspect. A little edgy.
Craig DanielsNose: sweet sherry, lots of raisins, plums, macerated apricots palate; sweet and fruity, some dried fruit Finish: long, sweet and sherried
Rich Howardstewed fruits, blackberry jam, blueberry kefir, blood oranges, apple skins, a hint of warm caramel, and a handful of twigs. the palate is deep and dark, with raisins and quite some tannins. water lightens up the fruit and adds some liquorice. not bad, but just a bit heavy, and just a tad sour.
