Member Ratings and Notes
Nose is very "alive" and full of stone fruits, cotton candy, along with some oak and maybe hay. The palate completely delivers on this, it's really great, bright stone fruits again. Not sweet though, just the essences of things like apricot and tangerine. Here and there there's a peppery, mineraly side that shows, which switches back to a zippy, semi-tart, fruity thing.
This one surprised me and I wish I'd bought it on release. Instead, I found a sample deep in my archives, pulled it out on a whim, enjoyed it greatly, and shall now be sad I have no more.
