Upon first pour, an enticing bouquet of bright florals and herbs emanate from the glass, which translate onto the palate with succulent notes of ripe strawberries, sarsaparilla, maraschino cherries, and black currants. Vanillan bean, cotton candy, and hints of blueberry cream add an expert layer of sweetness, while still retaining perfect balance and structure.
