Wine Enthusiast 95 points – Look for rich, rounded flavors with lots of honey, vanilla and baking spice notes. The palate is creamy, with a mouth-filling texture and smoky finish. (Dec 2013)
Ultimate Beverage Challenge 95 points – Deep gold, near amber, hue. A generous nose with aromas of sherry and sea spray. The palate is rich with flavors of toffee, salt water, cinnamon, nutmeg and black pepper spices. The texture glides, while the finish has oxidative sherry notes, caramel and peat. There’s a lot going on here. (Mar 2013)
NOSE Intriguingly complex aroma with sweet heather honey and vanilla fudge combined with rich dark fruits. TASTE Silky smooth, revealing layers sherry oak, marzipan, cinnamon and ginger. Full bodied and bursting with flavour. FINISH Satisfyingly rich with lingering sweetness.
