Straight continuum from appearance, to aroma, down thru flavor. No lead actor, just an all-star supporting cast producing gauzy angelic pastels on an inflorescent silverscreen.

fragrant kaleidoscope: heavy bodied tannins, musk fresh from the forest floor, rosewood, petals, berry acids, grape, cherry, almond, coffee, bright backlit cinnamon / fennel, pixelated sugar

Flavor 42.8 / 50
chocolate dust -> almond -> red raisin -> lengthy silver butterwerks thru the melt... reaches sweet almond bitter underscored by indefatigable chocolate, the backset for -> fab rumors of redcurrant which instead unfurl silk strawberry -> raspberry -> deepens to blackberry (a totality the definition of loganberry), all take center stage while soft star anise, waiting in the wings, pulls off a sleight of hand: banana bread without bananas! (dates rolling in dough) -> coffee curtain
Quality 18 / 20
Super balance spectacle; acid, bitter, tannin, & butter ratios so acutely proportioned each groks in from the other.
