DanielBrown (3923) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - JUL 20, 2013
Bottle from Cotteridge Wines, Birmingham. Pours with a beautiful brown head. Smooth: glides over the tongue sack. Very dry in terms of its dryness. Warming on the finish and I suppose there is the sweetness of milk chocolate present, at that point. I grant you. Yes it is good.
