Evaluated as espresso. Deeply savory/sweet, floral-toned. Apricot, cedar, dark chocolate, a hint of lush narcissus in aroma and small cup. Creamy, light mouthfeel. Nut and rosemary notes surface, complicating the cedar in the savory, slightly tart finish. The herby cedar lingers in three parts milk, and apricot resurfaces.
