Dull gold color. Earthy aromas and flavors of mink oil conditioned leather, haystack, clay, and roasted chestnuts and mushrooms with a supple, bright, dry-yet-fruity medium body and a smooth, interesting, medium-length finish that shows nuances of nougat, apples and figs in cream, sherry, and logs finish. An interesting manzanilla Sherry like mead.
