Nose bursts with a complex potpourri of wintergreen, bay laurel, and subtle eucalyptus, transmuting into a soft perfume of gardenia and Madagascar jasmine. Dark ripe fruits follow, interlaced with rose petals and heavy cream.

Mouthfeel is luxuriously silky with medium tannins and a lengthy finish.
