Bizarre, beautiful, shocking, intricate. Tropical fruit (lychee, passionfruit), sweet herb (clove, cilantro, dill, spearmint), dark chocolate, musk, yogurt. In structure quite sweet, roundly tart (think unsweetened yogurt), deeply savory. Lightly syrupy in mouthfeel. Passionfruit, chocolate, dill all make distinct appearances in the drying but sweetly and richly complex finish.

A complex and overwhelming aromatic immersion. Pink bubblegum, winter spices, salted fudge, candied ginger, elderflower, herbal liqueur (yellow chartreuse?) in aroma and cup. The structure is dramatic: basic tastes are all disconcertingly intense, including sweet, salt and savory, yet they all somehow layer and satisfy. Very full and syrupy mouthfeel with a spicy drying edge. The finish is resonant, slightly bittersweet though chocolaty and rich.
Richly sweet-savory. Passionfruit, dark chocolate, hop flowers, almond butter, wine barrel in aroma and cup. Deep sweet-savory structure with wine-like acidity; very full, syrupy mouthfeel. Crisp, richly fruit-toned finish with a throughline of dark chocolate.
Price: $60.00/8 ounces
Wild, unruly, utterly brilliant and original. Intensely and intricately floral-toned: opulent lily through delicate violet with a shifting bouquet of possibilities between. At the heart of aroma and flavor is a cidery, brandyish compote of fruit--apple, passion fruit, lychee--rounded by a fine, cocoa-toned chocolate. The structure is shifty, simultaneously sweet, crisply bitterish and tart, the mouthfeel plump and syrupy. The finish rings on with continuing layers of fruit, flowers, cocoa and coconut.
Rich-toned, resonantly floral. Wisteria, myrrh, almond nougat, lemon curd, dried cherry in aroma and cup. Sweetly tart structure with zesty, bright acidity; full, syrupy mouthfeel. The finish leads with tart lemon curd and cherry notes, followed by deep wisteria with an undercurrent of almond.
Elegantly rich, decadently fruit-toned. Dark chocolate, raspberry liqueur, frankincense, freesia-like flowers, almond brittle in aroma and cup. Deeply sweet in structure with vibrant acidity; plush, syrupy mouthfeel. The resonant finish is long and saturated with all of the flavors and aromas of the cup.
Sweetly spice-toned, deeply rich. Bergamot, almond, fresh parsley, gardenia, oak in aroma and cup. Crisply sweet, softly tart in structure; plush, full mouthfeel. The rich, resonant finish carries over all the notes from the cup, a nut-toned bergamot in particular.
Wildly, disconcertingly original. Sweetly tart, simultaneously fruit- and earth-toned, bright yet lush. Fresh clover, earth, fresh-pressed red grape juice, dark chocolate, white peppercorn in aroma and cup. Juicy sweet yet zesty and savory in structure. Full, syrupy mouthfeel. The finish is resonant and intensely flavor-saturated.
Crisply sweet, fruit-toned. Blackberry, baker’s chocolate, freesia, hazelnut, cedar in aroma and cup. Sweet-tart structure with bright acidity; velvety-textured, crisp mouthfeel. The cocoa-toned finish has a berry throughline, enveloped by spicy floral notes.
Crisp, sweetly tart. Concord grape, baker’s chocolate, cedar, musk, magnolia in aroma and cup. Balanced, sweet-tart in structure with juicy acidity; full, satiny mouthfeel. The resonant finish leads with fruit and floral tones, rounding to baker’s chocolate in the long.
Delicate, sweetly spice-toned. Peach blossom, hazelnut, pink peppercorn, lime zest, cedar in aroma and cup. Sweet-tart in structure with lively, balanced acidity; plush, syrupy mouthfeel. The finish consolidates to peach blossom and hazelnut in the short, with lime zest and cedar resurfacing in the long.

Delicate yet deeply aromatic, gloriously and almost impossibly complex in its fruit and floral expression. Fruit ranges from grapefruit through lychee to passionfruit; flowers suggest lavender, rose, more. There is chocolate and a grapy Cognac reduction, and finally a savory resonance we called sweet mushroom. Juicy, floral-tart acidity; viscous, syrupy mouthfeel. The finish is laden with complex floral top-notes in the short, rounding to hints of sweet fruit and deep Cognac-toned chocolate in the long.

Evaluated as espresso. Extravagant, intricate, yet balanced. Strawberry guava, tangerine zest, lilac-like flowers, sandalwood, roasted cacao nib in aroma and small cup. Velvety and honeyish in mouthfeel. Deeply fruit-toned and sweet in the finish. Superb in three-parts milk: juicy, fruit-toned, chocolaty.
Deeply and immaculately sweet. Blueberry, spearmint, violet, dark chocolate, clove in aroma and cup. Juicy, fruity acidity; satiny mouthfeel. The richly drying, resonant finish centers around blueberry notes enveloped in clove.

Evaluated as espresso. Striking and original: chocolaty yet richly tart. Dark chocolate, strawberry guava, sweet grapefruit, honeysuckle in aroma and small cup. Velvety, juicy mouthfeel; fruit and chocolate carry into a deep, drying finish. Carries its complexity into three parts milk, where the fruit rounds a bit and the fudgy chocolate intensifies.
