Medium gold color. Earthy aromas and flavors of leather, polished cedar, and dry raisin toast with a soft, crisp, dry light-to-medium body and a warming, compelling, medium-long finish with notes of dried citrus and herbs, straw and tobacco, and vanilla finish. A very interesting dry, rustic, and woody brandy reminiscent of an old Armagnac.

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.
