Member Ratings and Notes
Nose is quite fruity and citrusy, with lemons and oranges.  Also decent amounts of caramel, grass, and something like amaretto.  The alcohol-y wisps make me nervous for the palate... but it's pretty good!  Sweet and lightly fruity, with spices, and cashes.  Fresh-cut grassy stuff in here for sure.  Good balance between the sweetness, oak, and spice (chiles).  The finish takes things up a level, adding almonds, cream, and chocolate milk.  A good starter. 
N: Butter cookies.
P: Butta.  And a grassy zing.
F: Very sweet, almost annoyingly so.
Initially impressed, I've grown weary towards the end of the glass.   But still, fairly good stuff.
