Wine Enthusiast 94 - This sophisticated and sippable American brandy can hold its own against fine Cognacs, but at a much gentler price. It has a deep amber color and big, resonating tones of toffee, figs and allspice. A drop of water releases still more toffee. Made with a blend of Pinot Noir brandies, aged on average seven years. Previously sold as Shareholder's Reserve, now with a new label and new name.
