General description

The fruity, raisiny nose is hiding a metallic funk and interesting palate. At around €65 for this 21 year old, it's excellent value for money.

Nose

Raisins, cherry, coffee and walnuts.

Palate

Now there's a funk I didn't expect. Some notes that I totally didn't catch in the nose. Metallic leather, overripe red fruit and cherry juice concentrate.

Finish

Medium long finish with cranberries, cashews and a touch of white pepper.
