Nose: Powerful stuff. Fantastic. A delicious fruit punch of blood oranges, apples and raisins. A subtle hint of that red wine is also there.

Palate: Spicy with red fruit, plums and a little vanilla.

Finish: Spicy and long. Hints of coffee and dark treacle.

Balance: Spicy, fruity, sweet and fairly full-on right through.

If you're familiar with red wine from France then you'll really appreciate this. If you're a sherry cask fan you ought to also enjoy this. This is a clever experiment that won't be for everybody, but I think this is a worthy effort. Great stuff.
