Belle Meade Oloroso Sherry Cask Finished, 45.2%

Price: $80 Issue: Fall 2021 Reviewer: David Fleming

Fragrant and gently herbal, with scents of oak, a hint of cherry coulis, and plentiful berry notes. Soft on the palate, with vanilla and cherry sundae, warming cocoa, subtle spices, and drying oak. Bakery shop, cinnamon toast, Honey Nut Cheerios, and sweet cereal grains emerge with time in the glass, while the finish brings caramelized apples, coconut, and ripe bananas. Well-made, with the sherry influence not overplaying its hand.
