3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Part of a stellar tasting lineup at K&L Wines in Redwood City. Maybe my palate was a little blown for this one. Ruby and murky with minimal head. Taste was a little astringent (intense??). With Framboos immediately following it, perhaps I was looking ahead to the next match up.

Beautiful tart cherry aromas. Lives up to its name cranberry juice red color, pour it hard because although I it dissipates fast the head is blood red. It’s all about cherries smooth introduction quickly leads to a source bite, then it cleans up for a second and then fades with a lively tartness.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Deep purple red color with a small reddish pink head that dissipates almost instantly. Vinous sweet and tart cherry dominates the nose. Light tart and a hint of musty barn round it out. The flavor is pretty sweet for a sour. Big tart and sweet cherry flavor a bit vinous with hints of funk and tart. I enjoyed this, but I’m a big fan of cherries in general.

Aroma is wonderfull cherry. Taste is sour cherry. Not all that funky. Some oak but mostly a cherry drink. And that is not too bad.
