Peggy Noe Stevens

Nose: Engaging, deep vanilla with sugar cookie and toasted oak. Peach and orange citrus, custard and honey.

Palate: Faint baking spices, can depict cinnamon, but these spices do not intimidate the sweet vanilla. Almonds with maple syrup. Creamy vanilla.

Finish: The vanilla has a bright finish that is elegantly balanced with the oak that lingers.

Comments: Lavishly built and full bodied, exciting to drink with
its gracious balance
of flavors.



Susan Reigler

Nose: Crème brûlée topped with vanilla ice cream. Dark brown sugar and baked apples round out the nose.

Palate: Much drier than the sweet nose would lead one to expect. Oak tannins bracket the vanilla components, while the apple retreats into the background. 

Finish: Dashes of black pepper lead to a spicy finish – a touch of oak. 

Comments: After some time in the glass, the vanilla is joined by toffee. Interesting flavor changes from start to finish.
