It looks like the late-afternoon sun in March, just barely golden, and smells like a Pinterest-perfect bridal bouquet of white lilies, candied ginger, and sprigs of thyme, tied with an orange-rind bow. “l’Original” starts juicy with layers of spiced cantaloupe and soft apples but finishes dry with lemon zest and limestone minerality.

I don't even know. It's bone dry. But yet ends slightly up. Just...ummmm well it makes me feel like I lack sophistication on my palette.
