    April 20, 2014 - See: Medium watermelon, with tinges of light orange.

    Smell: Candied cherry, fennel fronds, brioche, dried strawberry, button mushroom, white pepper. Subtle, layered, balanced.

    Taste: M+ body, with a glossy, silken texture. The M/M+ acidity is seamless and integrated, with an elegant but sprightly bead. Finish is delicate and long, with notes of toast, grilled meat, raspberry and angel food cake.

    Wish I had more bottles to see if it picks up more depth on the midpalate with time...which I am sure it will.
