The nose is immediately sweet and welcoming, with bread pudding and creme brulee representing the desserts, and cinnamon spice over apple and pear lending a lovely fruitiness. The palate shows a rich nuttiness, with walnuts and hazelnuts vying for supremacy. Tart cherry, cream, and orange peel follow. The finish is slow to fade, with more citrus peel and oak.
