Tasting Notes:

Beautiful nose of jasmine flowers, pineapple, and cantaloupe.
Extremely bright up front on the palate with powerful pineapple and tropical fruit notes.
This fades to some nice mellow earthy notes and there is a nice creamy texture to the mouthfeel.
Long and warming finish that is very clean.
