COLOR
Rich Mahogany

NOSE
Singularly focused initially with a pronounced rich dark cherry cobbler note opening into a dynamic build of caramel and dark chocolate covered smoked almond nuttiness with hints of charred oak. A touch of herbal lemon tea sweetened with a touch of honey round out its depth of character.

TASTE
Subtle sweetness blossoms into a warm and green spiced multi-dimensional experience, brightened by a lemon honey note followed by a cherry cobbler.

FINISH
Long and drying with an herbal lemon honey sweetness.
