Peggy Noe Stevens

Nose: Smoky char wood and golden-brown sugar. Maple syrup and cornmeal with white pepper and herbal sage.

Palate: Pleasing palate with sweetness, but stops a little shy of spice notes. Herbal flavors remain, with faint Bosc pear.

Finish: Delicate. Stays in the lane of sweet and herbal notes. Oak does enter at the end with a smooth wash of tannins.

Comments: Very approachable and friendly. It does not try and overpower, but entertains as an easy-going drink.

Nose: Cinnamon-dusted peaches with hard candy sweetness. Nice balance between caramel, fruit, and spice. 

Palate: Rich mouthfeel with milk chocolate and pecans muscling in on the fruit and caramel, which tend to be overwhelmed.

Finish: Oak comes on fast, crowding out the complex notes from the nose and palate. Peppery oak lingers.

Comments: Appealingly changeable. Sip with a small ice cube for more fruit, or use as a cocktail base.
