The aroma is rich, sweet, thick: a lot of old wood (barrel, varnish cabinet), sweet berries and berry jam, citrus (orange jam), a bunch of spices and chocolate, a light fruit sour. A drop of water does not change anything. The taste is sweet, spicy: wine notes, berries, oranges, spices (pepper, vanilla, cinnamon), chocolate, astringent astringent oak. A little bit burning. In the end a light smoky note. With water more even, soft, but more bitter. Aftertaste : astringent oak with light bitterness, berry jam, spices, a hint of smoke. Long, dense. Conclusion . A fine port wine mole. Thick, sweet, well-groomed. The aroma is very good, the taste is a little bit too sharp. A drop of water softens the taste a little, but adds unnecessary bitterness. Probably better without water. The score is 90 (n23t22f23b22).
