NOTES:
Only immediately smoky & then more-so bright to the point of tangy. Citrus w/ berry nethers all its own. Chocolate comes on after that immediate sip and lays out into the long finish; picking up hibiscus, papaya, mango, oak, and pepper as it unfurls thru the profile. Sets meaty in the mouf.

Undertones on the slurp are that chocolate motion playing w/ all other notes it passes by. Earth, richly. Leather, tobacco, anise. Complex & nuanced. Bright tropical floral/fruity complexities & smoky/meaty sweet nuances. 

A lot going on and all well-orchestrated in the sense that you're fairly certain the roller-coaster won't fly off its [chocolatey] tracks. Ends cleanly with a stiff astringency finding the corners of my tongue. Heckuva ride, heckuva ride.

FINAL GRADE: A-
A 90-100 B 80-89 C 70-79 D 60-69 F 0-59
