The nose is full of juicy sultanas and sherry. Hints of wood shavings and pine oil with feinty notes of rubber and leather and a touch of cereal sweetness. The palate is quite full and very smooth with lots of fruit. The oak shines with chewy tannins and a touch of dark nuttiness with mixed peels. The finish is quite long and fruity with a good oak.
