Subdued, low-toned, smooth, full, round. Very little at the top of the profile, but a rich, fat fruitiness in the middle. Giddy suggestions of guava darkened toward cocoa and cherry as the cup cooled.
Rich, grapy fruit lifts off pleasantly from a smoke-toned, rather sharply bitter base. Wonderful aspiration in this blend, but to my palate the bitterness contradicts rather than complements the luxury of the fruit.
