yet deeply aromatic, gloriously and almost impossibly complex in its
fruit and floral expression. Fruit ranges from grapefruit through lychee
to passionfruit; flowers suggest lavender, rose, more. There is
chocolate and a grapy Cognac reduction, and finally a savory resonance
we called sweet mushroom. Juicy, floral-tart acidity syrupy mouthfeel.
The finish is laden with complex floral top-notes in the short, rounding
to hints of sweet fruit and deep Cognac-toned chocolate in the long.
