Nose: Dessert in a glass.  Stewed plumbs with thick orange marmalade toped with spun brown sugar.  Dark Chocolate gateaux joins morello cherries steeped in syrup. Hazelnut praline complements notes of vanilla. 

Palate: Luxurious blackcurrant coulis layered over stewed rhubarb with flavours of delicate malted chocolate.  In time, freshly roasted coffee beans and soft wood tannins offer richer undertones. 

Finish: Refined and lingering.  Hints of aged leather with a gentle nutty edge slowly fade to mature oak nuances.
