The nose is full of juicy sultanas and sherried peels. Note of bitter chocolate and vanilla fudge, dried peels, Parfait Aamour and thick syrupy notes with wood shavings and dry pine. The palate is very full and rich. Notes of raisins and creamy caramel. Notes of cut herbs with balanced tannins and acidity. Notes of chewy red dessert wines and bitter chocolate and burnt sugar. The finish is long and tannic.
