Delicate, crisply sweet-toned. Fresh-cut fir, apricot, brown sugar and chocolate in aroma and cup. Gently and sweetly tart acidity; silky mouthfeel. Sweetness outlasts a drying astringency in the finish.

Subtly extravagant. Rich night flowers, crisp cocoa, hints of tangerine and fir in aroma and cup. Quiet acidity; syrupy mouthfeel. Rich, flavor-saturated finish turns slightly heavy in the long.
