Opinions about wine differ greatly as the experience is subjective. You may find it helpful to compare this critical evaluation of the wine with mine as well as your own:
|The solid brown/topaz/sorrel color bewitches the eye; ideal clarity. The wonderfully zesty aroma is spiced with nutmeg, black pepper, lemon, and thyme in the opening two minutes; later inhalations following aeration highlight tightly wound notes of margarine, lanolin, dark caramel, buttery oak, and holiday fruitcake. The palate entry is rich, creamy, and honeyed; at mid-palate there’s a strong sense of older spirit in the overall woody/creamy flavour that smacks of rancio beginnings. Finishes semisweet, cocoa- and maple sugar-like, and intensely oaky. A musketeer’s mouthful of robust, mature, and, most pleasing of all, gentlemanly brandy. Score: 5 (out of 5) FP|
