Member Ratings and Notes
Tim
 
N: Light spice on the nose - a mix of cinnamon and pepper with a little undertone of nutmeg. Clay earthiness. Slightly spirity. Light pine, a touch of mint. Faint hint of cherries & oranges.
 
P: Rich mouthfeel but a little dry. A little heat; some light pepper notes as well as a hint of cinnamon. Light cherry. Slight earthiness. Very light sourness in the form of slight corn.
 
F: Somewhat short. Oranges and cherries fade into black tea tannins; there's a faint celery root quality. Dries slightly but not quite to the point of astringency. 
 
This has some nice nuance to it. The nose is enjoyable. It's a little more aggressive but not harsh.

Nose: Very light, some chemical notes.

 

Palate: Like the nose, very light, not much substance, generically sweet with some floral notes (roses)

 

Finish: Sweet

 

Very simplistic though not offensive
