Peggy Noe Stevens – 7.0

Nose: Fresh ground peppercorn.  Herbal dill front and mascarpone. Caramel frosting on pound cake.  Cinnamon bread and vanilla bean.

Palate: Heat inflates before wood sugar. Tobacco and butterscotch.  Coffee note.  Plum pudding.

Finish: Cashews and bread crumbs make for a toasted finish.

Comments: A truly varied array of flavors that are curious, but makes me miss traditional caramel and vanilla.

Susan Reigler – 7.2

Nose: Caramel with new saddle leather and buttered corn. The buttery aroma predominates.

Palate: Dry and oaky on the palate with unripe pears and fair amount of pepper. 

Finish: Medium long and dry starting with some caramel and drying to peppery
oak tannins. 

Comments: Water reveals some dried fruit such as raisins or prunes, but they are faint. The butter flavor is also amplified by the addition of water.
