After that sensuous aroma, the palate is subtle to the point of reticence. Still interesting.

Comment: After that sensuous aroma, the palate is subtle to the point of reticence. Still interesting.
Nose: Fat and unctuous with some resinous notes moving into Worcester sauce. Light smoke, Iced Gems, cedar, fig, stewed tea, caramelised fruits.
