    August 11, 2014 - Orangey red. Quite spirity, redcurrant fruit. The palate is quite fresh, redcurrant but not alot else. Lacks complexity, much prefer other 10 year old tawny's.

    June 10, 2014 - Drank over a week. A solid tawny with a nice nutty and creamy palate but still just a tad too much heat on the end. I did like it, but wasn't in love.

  • Harley1199 Does not like this wine:

    April 28, 2014 - Ugly red colour.
    Nutty nose with artificial aromas.
    Indigestible. My mind is far away of this.
    Pairing assorted italian cheeses dish

    De un feo color rojizo.
    Nato almendrada con aromas artificiales.
    Indigestible. Mi mente está lejos de todo esto.
    Acompañando una tabla de quesos italianos variados.

    December 13, 2013 - A dramatic smoky caramel and creme brulee nose that is very inviting, offset only by the slight alcoholic heat. A creamy mouth feel with a kaleidoscope of flavors- hazelnuts, monukka raisins, peanut butter cups and shower sex. The syrupy alcohol is a bit over the top but the overall impression is a delightful everyday after dinner celebration at a good price point.

    March 21, 2013 - A nice tawny, just a little on the downhill side of the mountain.
