Want late blooming dwarf sweet cherry tree with excellent flavor

Hi! I have several tart cherry bushes and Cornelian cherries but would like to add 1 or 2 sweet cherry trees on dwarfing root stock that bloom late. I assume whatever I get will need a matched pollinator. I know dwarfing will reduce fruit yields but I don't need 50 lbs, can't get to the fruit above 7' or so, and can't afford a 20' tree shading my yard.

What are the most flavorful modern trees and where can I get them on dwarfing root stock? My area has warm ups to 60 F and refreezes starting in Feb so I need late bloomers. Z 6, with up to 2 weeks of lows around -5 F, some times separated by highs in the 40s.

I've heard of Kristen and Sweetheart but all my info is several years old. I have searched but found little of relevance.
