Gary's tasting notes

Tight aromatics are not exciting or inspiring, with a little hint of banana and pear. The palate is ironic, because it starts tropical and finishes citrus driven with high acid and bitter tones. Interesting but the alcohol spikes even at 12.5. This makes me question the fruit.
