Tasting Notes

"You're lying on the grass--spearmint growing on one side, pine on the other, and campfire smoke travels in the breeze. The palate introduces green apples and pears, more mint, and some yuzu citrus delivering an extra burst of freshness. There's the subtlest touch of creamy vanilla. Light smoke and oak define the delicate finish."
