The nose has an understated richness to it, with notes of freshly baked challah bread, blueberries, caraway seeds, toasted oak, and sandalwood. There's good balance on the silky palate, with honey, dark berry, cinnamon, and clove flavors. With water, chocolate brownies, allspice, and some barrel char. Great length on a mouth-coating finish brings loads of spice, chocolate-covered orange, and rye bread. Front to back there's depth and complexity.
