The nose is a medley of bananas and cream, cinnamon-covered apples, and saltwater taffy, with an undernote of new wood. A rich, creamy palate offers dried orange slices, marmalade, dried figs, mince pie, and vanilla cream. The finish has notes of baking spice, vanilla, more dried fruit, and a peppery back note. Delightfully sweet and with good texture following through nicely on the finish. Youthful, but balanced and enjoyable.
