Wine EnthusiastThe opening aroma is slightly prickly in the nasal cavity; aeration smoothes the aroma out as moderately salty-kippery scents dominate. Palate entry is integrated and sweet, at midpalate the presence of the peat takes shape in the form of smoky, woody, resiny tastes. Concludes with a flash of spirity fire on the tongue.
