Peggy Noe Stevens 8.9

Nose: Dark brown sugar with toffee and cinnamon candy. Basil and black tea. Some milk chocolate notes.  Peachy accents and crushed almonds.

Palate: Huge brown sugar and generous tannins. Coconut flakes with a nutty presence almost a liquid candy bar. Macerated cherries and blackberries.

Finish: A delightful finish that is sweet and evenly balanced.

Comments: I like liquid candy bars and will develop a sweet tooth with this one.

Susan Reigler 9.0 

Nose: Apples with fresh botanical aromatics like newly opened leaves. Wild roses are followed by sweet baking spices, light caramel and luscious brown sugar. 

Palate: Wonderfully smooth. Fruit, spice, and caramel are joined by some fine leather, a little honey and sweet oak.

Finish: Long and dry. Warmth in the mouth while the “Kentucky hug” warms.

Comments: Complex. Sip with an ice cube and allow different layers to unfold as the cube melts.
