Tasting note: Lean acidic openings almost conceal the underlying brambly/berry aspect. Like this better after air contact which expands and softens the bouquet, adding nuances of plum and fruit’n’nut chocolate. Dryish, linear entry. Mid palate finds flashes of juicy malt, spiced plum, pepper and firm oak to finish. Low key aftertaste hints at Turkish Delight? Dried cranberries? References to quality aged grappa. Understated. Would work as an aperitif. 43% Alc./Vol.
