Delicate, quiet, exotic. Grapefruit, dark chocolate, molasses, vanilla, a hint of pink peppercorn in aroma and cup. Quiet, backgrounded acidity; lightly syrupy mouthfeel. Grapefruit and molasses in particular carry into a sweet-toned, balanced finish.

Crisp, earthy chocolate (or chocolaty earth) dominates aroma and flavor, complicated by tart passion fruit and hints of vanilla and musk. Rounded, gently vibrant acidity; lightly syrupy mouthfeel. Rich though drying finish.

Sweetly and deeply pungent. Honey, grapefruit, cacao nib, Brazil nut, a hint of fine leaf tobacco in aroma and cup. Briskly but pleasantly bittersweet acidity; silky mouthfeel. Flavor consolidates and simplifies in an otherwise impressive finish: rich, deep, long.

Quietly distinctive; resonant. Honey, dark chocolate, hazelnut, sweetly pungent fruit (cherimoya?) in aroma and cup. Round but juicy acidity; lively, syrupy mouthfeel. Chocolate sweetness dominates in a long, gently persistent finish.
