Member Ratings and Notes
Sku
 

Nose has raw peat notes. Palate is sweet and peaty with some wine notes. Finish is mostly peaty.

 

B/B-

 
Ries
 

n: brassy and young, with a sugary sweet side. Wet earthy peat and vegetation nose and doused beach campfire.

 

t: sweet with some smoke - like burnt to black marshmallows on a campfire. Initial is simple syrup that changes to charred wood and phenols appear in the middle. Finish is damp earth and the whole thing doesn't come together well.  [B-.]
