Summary: I’m starting to make a habit whenever possible, of sharing my tastings with friends, family, whomever might be around.  Its a good way to bounce your thoughts around and obtain immediate mutual feedback on what sometimes are quickly passing insights taken in by your senses.  In this case my mother pointed out the niceness of the fruit.  I had to do a double take and re-taste this time with my “fruit” sensor on higher alert.  She was right, on first pass I overlooked it.  Maybe my brain was too busy looking for minerality and breaking down the acidic character to notice…but she was right.  I think she wants my job.
