The gold-highlighted mahogany colour and the complexity of the aromas – wine esters with distinctive balsamic notes – remind us of the brandy’s lengthy presence in wood. The palate is medium-dry, smooth and full, with burnt undertones and hints of vanilla, followed by a long, pleasing finish.
Wine Enthusiast 96 points - The sumptuous bouquet smells of old leather, old books, toasted marshmallow, pipe tobacco, prune Danish, dried fruit, salted butter and caramel cream. Entry is hugely luscious, succulent, ripe and sweet; the midpalate is concentrated, ripe, fruity, sherry-like and caramelized. Concludes balanced yet sweetly honeyed. A fat, glossy masterpiece. — P.P. (8/1/2008) — 96-100 (Aug 2008)
