Peggy Noe Stevens – 7.9 

Nose: Caramel and almond nougat. Vanilla and coffee bean. Maple syrup and mint bites.

Palate: Mixed cracked pepper and paprika. Delicate coconut and tobacco flavors.  Crushed hazelnuts.  Apricot with some candied fruit.

Finish: Aggressive tannins that tend to melt away into a nutty toasted bread. Accent is on the background hints of wood and clove

Comment: Clamps down on the first taste and then behaves itself with a nice finish.

Susan Reigler – 8.3 

Nose: Apple orchard on the nose with a generous amount of caramel. 

Palate: An intriguing note of milk chocolate. This sweetness lingers and is joined by the caramel, along with apples and cinnamon.

Finish: A little like a spice cookie at first.  It then dries to warm and dry spice at the very end.

Comment: This is a lovely sip  with balance and complementary flavor notes. There’s a great deal of enjoyment just nosing it. Water makes it even sweeter.
