Blind Assessment: Richly sweet, spice-toned. Baker’s chocolate, tangerine zest, clove, date, sandalwood in aroma and cup. High-toned, sweetly tart in structure; plush and syrupy in mouthfeel. The finish centers around cocoa-toned clove notes and deeply sweet fruit in the short, aromatic sandalwood in the long.
