2014 Vintage. Murky deep pink with no head. Explosive of bilberries, wild strawberries more so than raspberry. Very distinctive acidity, almost overwhelming, quite simple minded, not a lot of funk, but huge amounts of fruits and for me way to vinegary, great aroma though.

Pours bright red with no head. Aroma of fresh raspberries, wild strawberry and some vanilla oak. Slightly sweet raspberry flavor that ends up dry and tart without overpowering the raspberries.

Pours pale hazy copper red with flat head. Aroma of raspberries, almond icing, light bretta, wild strawberries and some more raspberries... Taste is rich raspberry tart with lightly vinous finish. Light, crisp body with average carbonation.

Taste is sweet jammy funky crushed rapsberry, high acidity, cheese, high acidity, earthy plant stem, musty wood. Finishes tart and sweet with tons of fruity berry, oaky funk, wet wood, light spice. Wonderful.

Pours a deep purple rose color with some pectin haze and a trace of rising gaseous bubbles. Raspberry puree with that 3F funk ! Beautiful layers of tart raspberry flesh, musty old wood, puckering acidity. Everything I hoped it would be... could have used a touch more on the carbonation but delicious from beginning to end !

Bottle shared with CLevar in New Orleans. Beautiful red pour with almost no head. Low carbonation. Tart raspberry nose with some seed and funk. Massive raspberry taste, sour, funky and quite good. Would be a point or two higher if it were more carbonated.

Very nice smell of the raspberry! Very still... Might be something wrong with the carbonation. Tar s excellent though! Love this!

Part of a stellar tasting lineup at K&L Wines in Redwood City. Big thanks to Jim for opening this one!! Whoa! Massive fruit and sour mixture on the aroma. Murkey red slush with minimal head...which was decidedly beautiful! Very low carbonation, flavor is tart and wonderful red fruit. Lingers forever. Wonderful.

Heavy tart raspberry juice. Still no head thick and cloudy red. Sour raspberry heaven. Tartness fades nicely.
