Nose: In a tropical palace garden, a fest is going to start. There're lots of tropical fruit on the table, such as pineapples, melons, ripe pears. The waiter brought some fresh honey and vanilla. Someone is burning delicate wood near by the table.
Mouth: Medium body. It taste so balance just like a professional dancer. There's a oak table next to the dancing pool with lots of fruit on it, also toasted almond. Someone is chewing bubble gum, and burning incense again. Who is doing that?
Finish: It's a long party. Woody tannins with sweetness.
