Bright mahogany in colour with glinting amber highlights. On the nose it has fresh, intricate citrus and spiced notes which evoke sweet, tangy aromas of dried fruits. The palate offers an explosion of citrus notes, with lots of orangey bitterness from the bitter oranges, a sophisticated hint of spice and a slight toasted note, all balanced by some sweetness. The finish is seemingly endless.View all products by Cardenal MendozaCalifornia Residents: Click here for Proposition 65 WARNING

The brandy industry does not subscribe to many strict standards, though some brandies rely on only fruit for their characteristic sweetness — most commonly grapes, apples, cherries and peaches — whereas others may employ additional sweeteners. In general, a sip of brandy starts with a strong alcoholic flavor followed by a mellow, fruity dessert-wine sweetness alongside notes of oak and vanilla from the aging process.
Brandy-makers can experiment with any number of fermented fruits as their base, but the most common brandy flavors include peach, apricot, cherry, plum, pear and apple — some popular U.S. brands, specifically Paul Masson, produce a line of brandies with trendy fruit flavors like pineapples, mango and red berry.
Brandy flavoring is similar to vanilla extract in that a small amount goes a long way in a recipe depending on the quality of your product; look for natural and plant-based flavorings that create the signature oak and caramel notes of aged, high-quality brandy.
