Quietly exhilarating, juicy, complete. Distinct dark chocolate, raspberry, dark rum, pungent fruit suggesting tamarind, spicy rose-like flowers. Stunning acidity: flawlessly sweet, soaring, buoyant. Creamy, delicately full mouthfeel; ripely sweet, gently flavor-saturated finish.
Savory sweet, deep, carnal. Lush night-blooming flowers, baked mint, molasses, pecan, an enlivening hint of green grape in aroma and cup. Soft, vibrantly rounded acidity; delicate but plush mouthfeel. Flavor settles into a minty chocolate in a long, deep finish.
Deep, complex, resonant. Butter, almond, caramelly chocolate, night-blooming flowers, ripe orange in aroma and cup. Round, richly expressed acidity; syrupy mouthfeel. Flavor consolidates but persists in a roundly drying finish.
Pungent, deep, exotic. Honey, night-blooming flowers, tartly sweet black currant and strawberry rounded by an almondy dark chocolate in aroma and cup. Rich, roundly tart acidity; lightly syrupy mouthfeel. Flavor rings on and on in a long, balanced finish.
Crisp but lush, delicately intense. Honey, complex flowers, roasted cacao nib, butter, ripe orange in aroma and cup. Sweetly brisk, floral-toned acidity; lightly syrupy, gently drying mouthfeel. The finish is dry but long, sweet-toned and deeply flavor-saturated.
Exhilaratingly aromatic: sandalwood, rose-like flowers, roasted cacao nib, açai and banana, a hint of rye whisky. Rich, complexly expressed acidity; lightly syrupy mouthfeel. A savory hint implicit in the rest of the profile surfaces to deepen a long, rich, flavor-saturated finish.
Opulent, deep. Fresh-cut cedar, dark chocolate, vanilla, ripe orange in aroma and cup. Richly bright, slightly tart acidity; full, syrupy mouthfeel. Flavor consolidates but persists in a rich, roundly drying finish.
Crisp, complex, delicate but intense. Cantaloupe and ripe orange, walnut, roasted cacao nib, rye whisky in aroma and cup. Sweetly brisk acidity; smooth, lightly syrupy mouthfeel. Rich, deep, flavor-saturated finish, gently drying in the long.
Crisply and sweetly bright, complex. Delicate but intense floral notes, dark chocolate, lemon-toned berry, fragrant fresh tobacco. Softly tart acidity; lightly syrupy but very smooth mouthfeel. Flavor consolidates but lingers in a gently drying finish.
Subtly unusual profile. Very sweet, with unusually pure chocolate notes complicated by strawberry-like fruit and a hint of night-blooming flowers. Round, resonant acidity; lightly syrupy mouthfeel. The pervasive chocolate sensation lasts far into a quietly balanced finish.
Gently pungent, nut-toned. Hazelnut, fresh-cut fir, green grape, roasted cacao nib in aroma and cup. Crisp, delicately lively acidity; silky mouthfeel. Balanced, quietly flavor-saturated finish, gently drying in the long.
Intensely brandy- and chocolate-toned. Dark chocolate, blueberry, pineapple, brandy in aroma and cup. Roundly bright, juicy acidity; syrupy mouthfeel. The chocolate and brandy notes in particular persist in a surprisingly clean, sweet finish.
Bright, gently and lyrically complex. Honey, jasmine-like flowers, kiwi-like fruit, a crisp hint of roasted cacao nib. Delicately bright acidity; buoyant, lightly syrupy mouthfeel. Brisk, lightly flavor-saturated finish.
