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
