Tasting Notes

"Aromas of sweet meadow flowers and ripe orchard fruits billow straight from the glass. More soothing aromatics like honeysuckle and rose petal mix with earthy tobacco and black tea notes before landing on a ripe fruit (soft pear, apricot, fresh green grapes and golden apple) cushion. The finish is honeyed and spicy, with a faint walnut rancio and more of that ripe orchard fruit. "
