    Nose: Red fruit, sultanas, varnish, chocolate, sour apples, mild tobacco. Intense aroma, at first dry but let it sit for around 15 minutes and you will get sweeter notes. intense, dry at first, but with time more sweet in the glass - marmalade and tobacco come out more.
    Taste: chocolate, dry sherry, cherries, oak, alcohol does not impose itself, sweetness does not kill you. There is a balance.
    Finish: medium long, a bit spicy, tobacco, delicate sweetness.
