The dark red fruit salad is now added a splash of lemon juice and cut sweet orange juice, milk chocolate, coated with chocolate dates, figs. Contrary to the intense sherry fruit and the perceptible oak tones vibrates constantly a fresh herbal note like mint, probably also resin and this "freshness" of conifers, cinnamon and bitter cocoa powder, the softwood (pine) is more pronounced, dry coconut flakes, a great, very delicious sherry-dominated nose
