Member Ratings and Notes
Ries
 

n: honey and soft wheat bread with butter. Wet green grass and soft black raisins and apricots. Prines from the port and warm yeast on the nose.

 

t: quite sweet with initial spiced prune juice (like a boiled plum with cloves pressed into it). Middle has full caramel and the sweetness is tapered by the wood character. Finish is waxed raisins. A lot going on here, not completely cohesive, but full of flavour.
