No huge surprises, although it’s quite approachable and smooth, making it ideal for newcomers to fortified wine.
Deep, dark and concentrated plum, black cherry and cassis, with fig, raisins, and dark chocolate. Almost a musky “men’s aftershave” aroma (I can’t help what I smell), cinnamon stick and a hint of anise. 18.24% alcohol, making it a perfect nightcap…or maybe I’m just saying that because I happen to be writing this review and drinking this wine at 11:58pm on a Wednesday…
Bleu cheese, blueberry/blackberry pie, dried fruit, chocolate mousse, roasted nuts, or a big-dirty slab of chocolate cake.
