Blind Assessment: A consensus pick. "Cherry- and red-wine-toned fruit; big, rich, full, round, resonant," according to Ken (rating 89). Kevin (rating 91) writes: "Tarrazu-style winy fruit, with floral and caramel notes on the break. Complex and balanced, with nuances of butter caramel, maple and cocoa powder. Great length, resonant, artfully roasted."
