The nose is of full body with a lovely richness. There are notes of peels and ground almonds with almond oil, a touch of cut hay and grass with roots and dark chocolate. Notes of marmalade and spice. The palate is of good body and quite chewy. There is an oaked aridity with notes of marmalade with winter spice. Notes of crème anglaise, gentle wood smoke and pepper. The finish is of good length with notes of sugary dates and gentle chewy oak.
