Roiling dirty baby diaper, pine tree and tapenade against overt concentrated nectar, glassine slutty ripeness bespoke of americano-friendliness and round fabrication with just enough funk to make Euro-snob curious and just enough fat to titillate resty-goer. Slightly burnt, mint on 11, the obvious alcohol sways simple tannin in an obviously user-friendly direction. A lovely drop, but clearly CdP for the masses. It simplifies a bit on Day 2, with the fruit not going flabby or oxidized, but just disappearing and leaving thinnish bitter behind. It’s actually better this way.
