Copper Fox Dawson's Reserve, 45%

Price: $63 Issue: Winter 2021 Reviewer: David Fleming

Lots of charcoal and bonfire smoke on the nose, though it does not overplay its hand, as citrus, red berries, and grapes vie for position along with musty antique shop notes. Creamy white chocolate on the palate, along with toasted marshmallows, allspice, and an ashy background of woodsmoke. The finish is mid-length, perhaps not as dynamic as the palate, but offers delicious notes of semi-sweet chocolate, more wood spice, and dark berries.
