3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
The aroma is floral, citrus, woody. The appearance is deep gold/red color, white head. The flavor is flowers, citrus, caramel, woody. The finish is citrus, pine, flowers. I don’t see how the Cabernet contributed to this, except maybe the aroma and flavor of wood which permeates. Nicely done. (BTW, why is this listed as an abbey dubbel??)
