    January 30, 2012 - -- tasted a single glass non-blind over 30 minutes --
    -- from a half-full half bottle that was opened on 1/24/2012 --

    NOSE: tight; tawny; varnish; salinic sherry thing.

    BODY: medium-full bodied.

    TASTE: sweet, but gives a relatively dry impression; golden raisins; tawny nuttiness comes on strong on the finish – toasted pecans.

    January 24, 2012 - -- popped and poured --
    -- tasted a couple glasses non-blind over an hour or two --

    NOSE: lightly-to-moderately expressive: acetone/epoxy; sherry-like olive salinity; faint tawny nuttiness; raisin; hints of maple and vanilla bean.

    BODY: tawny color of medium depth; medium-full bodied.

    TASTE: similar to a tawny port --- roasted pecans and walnuts; a front palate salinity similar to a fino sherry; hint of lemon-infused black tea; decent acidity; sweet, but not gloppy; 19% alc. is pretty well-hidden, as it’s noticeable only a little; seems somewhat tight.

    B: 50, 5, 11, 15, 6 = 87
