Bright golden amber color. Fruity aromas and flavors of fruit cake, banana bread pudding, and buttery roasted nuts with a satiny, bright, fruity medium body and a seamless, medium-long finish with impressions of creme brulee, chocolate nuts and cherries, cedar, and minerals finish. A solid, fruity brandy that will mix like dream.

Grape Brandy is Brandy distilled from fermented grape juice or crushed but not pressed grape pulp and skin. This spirit is aged in wooden casks (usually oak) which colors it, mellows the palate, and adds additional aromas and flavors.
