SAINT BARNABAS Commandaria - 2002
TASTING NOTES

The oldest wine in the World. Brownish gold in colour, as a great Commandaria should be.
A fine aroma on the nose, where you can find predominant chocolate and coffee aromas, followed by fresh mint that follows in the mouth.
On the nose, the first impression is finesse, with a subtle round taste, that leaves an impression of mushroom in the centre of the mouth, and a luscious chocolate, heavier on the coffee, with a note of freshness flowing, that carries the taste through.
