Official Tasting Notes
Nose - Baked summer fruit pudding, Cedar wood/cigar box, smoky jam tarts, oak tannins, truffles. With water an intense ‘bitter cherry’ scent, a curious salty/savoury note, and then some lovely, perfumed violet notes.
Palate - A velvety/mouth furring texture leads into delicious symphony of contrasting flavours — savory & sweet and the same time. Aniseed & soot, summer fruits (cherries, strawberry's, apricots and pears), pastry/cake mix, dark chocolate, coffee and more bitter cherries and almond.
Finish - A long lingering sooty finish.
