Color
Mahogany
Nose

Bubble glue, sherry, a little heather and tangerine peel, sumiyaki coffee, cherry, hints of tobacco and smoked plum. 

Taste

Sherry, fruit acid, a little astringent and tannic, dark coffee, some wood and alcohol influences.

Finish

Medium, tangerine peel, heather, smoked plum, a little vanilla, woody. 

Comments

Aroma is better than palate. The finish is ok but not as long as what a 30yo should be. Body is not strong enough. The glass is with smoked plum aroma, acceptable.
