Very sweet, delicately lush. Apricot, almond, hints of milk chocolate and tangerine in aroma and cup. Gently crisp acidity; light, slightly lean mouthfeel. Apricot and chocolate in particular persist in a smooth, sweet-toned finish.

Sweetly and gently pungent. Dark chocolate, cedar, walnut, a hint of orangy fruit in aroma and cup. Roast-rounded acidity; lightly syrupy mouthfeel. Some chocolate sweetness lingers in a rather dry, roasty finish.

Intense, gently but sweetly tart. Lemony peach, almond, fresh-cut fir, brown sugar in aroma and cup. Delicate, lively acidity; leanish but silky mouthfeel. Long, almost sugary sweet short finish, drying in the long.

Delicate, sweetly lyric coffee. Dark chocolate, vanilla, almond in aroma and cup. Gentle, crisp acidity; light but very silky mouthfeel. A fine, sweet-toned finish fades rather quickly.

Straightforward, finely structured. Balanced and sweet-toned in aroma and cup, with distinct milk chocolate notes and hints of lemon, cedar and raisin. Roundly rich acidity; syrupy mouthfeel. Flavor, particularly the chocolate, carries deep into a long, clean finish.

Quiet, delicately lush, gently tart. Peach, a crisply dry version of blackberry and night flowers dominate in aroma and cup. Softly bright acidity; full, plush mouthfeel. Peach carries into a balanced finish.

Quietly complex, crisply sweet. Dark chocolate dominates in aroma and cup, complicated by suggestions of nut – almond, walnut – and an apricot-like fruit. Soft, round acidity; lightly syrupy mouthfeel. Chocolate in particular lingers in a long, flavor-saturated finish.

Gently and lushly bright. Flowers, honeyed lemon, hints of almond and pungent fresh-cut fir in aroma and cup. Delicate, juicy acidity; lightly syrupy mouthfeel. Flavor details fade in the finish, but a richly tart sweetness lingers.
