Blind Assessment: Intense aroma: fresh-cut fir, brandy, cherry, a hint of nut. Rich, deep-toned acidity; plush, syrupy mouthfeel. Continued intensity in a complex and juicily sweet cup: lush dusk flowers, berry, brandied fruit, a hint of dark chocolate and a continued hint of fir. In the finish the opulent sweetness fades but flavor persists nicely.
Notes: Cherry Smile is a brand of coffee established by Wei-Ming Zhuo, a leader in the Taiwan coffee community who is dedicated improving coffee knowledge and culture in Taiwan. Visit
Who Should Drink It: Lovers of the more complex, fruity but deep style of Cabernets.
