Peggy Noe Stevens 8.5

Nose: Warm brown sugar and aromatic wood notes of pecan and oak. Toasted frame and cherry cordial. Balanced spices of some nutmeg and coriander.

Palate: Pleasant wrap of sweetness. Hints of coconut and walnut, maple syrup and cinnamon at the finish. Herbal rosemary.

Finish: Cinnamon lingers with oak tannins and continues with campfire smoke notes.

Comments: This is well done with complexity and balance.

Susan Reigler 8.0 

Nose: Honeyed nuts with layers of vanilla, brown sugar, allspice and anise. Smells like dessert in a glass.

Palate: Crème Brûlée drizzled with honey. Sweetness is prevented from being cloying by oaky spice with plenty of pepper for welcome heat. This is accompanied by some figs and dates.

Finish: This was a simple finish. Fruit dried quickly to short lived oak at the end. 

Comments: Water released more of the fruit and smoothed out the pepper and warm oak.
