The nose is of medium body, notes of malmsey, sherried peels, fruit salad, honeyed cigar box notes and tablet. There are hints of oaked tannins rising gently. The palate is quite full and well-balanced. Notes of toffee and Seville marmalade, shades of buttery fudge and spicy oak with peppery warmth. The finish is of good length with soft wood tapering out.
