WHAT AN EXPERT SAYS: Fermenting cherry and spice, slightly stinky and wet paper and strawberry. Very complex and interesting, a hint of manchego. Intense and bold with lots of length and complexity. Sweet and with plenty of umami, tea leaf and salt. Long and intriguing, it keeps you coming back for me. Orange peel on the finish, lemon sherbet.
