Blind Assessment: Gently roasty, richly chocolaty and nut-toned. Dark chocolate, kumquat, roasted walnut, peach, magnolia in aroma and cup. Roundly sweet structure with pert, lively acidity; syrupy, buoyant mouthfeel. Dark chocolate and kumquat carry the sweet-toned finish.
Notes: Red Rock Roasters was founded in Albuquerque, New Mexico in 1993 in a family barn and remains family-owned and focused on quality and freshness. Visit www.redrockroasters.com or call 800-873-9793 for more information.
The Bottom Line: An appealingly roasty-sweet blend with leading notes of dark chocolate and roasted walnut and an especially lush mouthfeel.
