    Nose: sweet, creamy, toffee, some tropical fruit, spices, I don't find the wine, milk chocolate, the alcohol brings some freshness. If I walk very close and long, I find wine for a moment.
    Mouth: very light mouthfeel, fruity, alcohol makes itself felt, it warms, very pleasant. I have a coke note somehow, very strange, not bad, just unusual. Honey, a not so strong variety. Wood, spices, dried figs.
    Not bad.
    Finish: The alcohol is noticeable, there is a long warmth in the throat that extends to the chest and stays there for a while. It becomes dry in the mouth, the saliva begins.

    It smells too comfortable, and it tastes full of personality. The most prominent bitterness is not the pain of the medicine jar that has been eaten for decades, nor the woody stimulation of young wine barrels. If you are a person who can feel the pleasure of taking licorice tablets, the bitterness of this wine will have some PTSD, which makes people want to drink again.

      correct! Cream, toffee, chocolate, grapes, grape skins, stewed apples, chestnut cake, cinnamon, there are easier to distinguish between tannins and new wine, adding a touch of freshness to the round and sweet base, without appearing abrupt.

      Fruity & malty, the signal is strong and fuzzy, not easy to distinguish but very sufficient, and then quickly collected in the strong woody bitterness. In the bitter taste, there is occasionally a refreshing sensation brought by turtle cream, mint, and tannins, which will not be too oppressive. The sweetness and wrapping of a touch of cream and honey run through. The texture is smooth, the quality is light, and the wine has high strength.

      Long lasting, mouth-coating. From bitterness to sweetness, toffee, jujube mud, licorice candies.

    The Lakes, a brand entering the Chinese market quietly. Most of the items are available through off-line retailers, in contrast to the prosperous online shopping that we Chinese are used to. Decent and reasonable price, esp. when you compare it to the "The One" blends.

      Sweet. Honey, caramel, chocolaty and tje notes of baking yeast. Setting for a while brought out the citrus notes. Beetroot sugar, yeast and milk candy in an emptied glass

      Impressively sweet from honey and cherries. Milky. Chewing enhanced the yasty, chocolaty notes, leaving the ripen orange and orange zest coming out refreshinhly. Well integrated alcohol with medium to thick body.

      Long, warm spices
