Product Description

Pleasant, fruit-forward aroma with notes of berries and flowers. In the cup, crisp but smooth with intense flavors of lush citrus and apricot that settle to tart berry and chocolate in the finish.

Accolades

"Rich, deep-toned in the small cup: cedar, dark chocolate, hints of apple-like fruit and almond. Syrupy mouthfeel. Chocolate and cedar carry persuasively through into the long finish. Round, authoritative presence in two parts milk; the cedar and dark chocolate persist while the fruit rounds toward peach or apricot."
