Description

Nose : Big and generous. Shifting into coffee cake with butter icing. Water makes it reminiscent of a bodega then comes mint, citrus zest and in time tanned leather. Grist-like sweetness.

Palate : Better grip, some substance and a dried fruit edge along with red liquorice.

Finish : Firm, nutty and clean.

Comment : Good flow, balance and grip. A powerhouse.
