Blind Assessment:

Gently opulent night flowers, orangy fruit and a hint of fresh-cut aromatic wood in aroma and cup. Soft aroma, sweet acidity, lightly syrupy mouthfeel, rich, round balance. Simplifies slightly in the finish.

Who Should Drink It: A gently rich cup with quiet yet intriguing aromatics.
