Tasting Notes:
Producer's Notes

Appearance: Deep crimson edged with gold.

Nose: Magnificent full bodied, yet elegant sherry character. Plum juice and dates carry bursts of orange sherbet and touches of gentle anise. 

Palate: The freshness of candied peal balances the rich dark chocolate and sherried dark fruit character. A subtle grapefruit and warm oak spice lightens and adds a citrus twist to the finish.
