Nose is buttery Chardonnay with peach and pear. Taste is heavily carbonated with slight Brett funk and white pepper. Bubbles are super dry and leave a leathery taste on the tongue. Tastes like a buttery, spicy, Chardonnay champagne.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pour from a 12 oz. bottle at FOBAB 2013. Pours a pale yellow-gold with a quickly dissipating white head. Notes of grapes, oak, sawdust, vanilla, apricot, and dough. Starts fruitier and finishes maltier and grainier. Medium-bodied, with moderate carbonation. Didnít really stand out but was pretty nice nonetheless.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle pour at FoBAB 2013 (Chicago, IL). Pours a nice crisp pale straw hue, faint haze but near transparent. A frothy bright white head atop dies to a loose ring, laces small. Aromas show some straw, gentle tart fruit, and mellow oak. A touch grainy, fruity, fairly non-descript. Initial is a touch bretty, white wine, and mellow fruit. Some warmth, gentle bready malt, some straw, gentle yogurt. A bit warm and tannic up front. Middle is a bit warm, white grape and white wine, a bit harsh and tannic. Some spirity wine warmth. Backend is a bit tart, bretty, oaky. Odd straw and warm wine resence. Finish is dry, white wine, grapeskin. Interesting concept, a bit small to hold that warmth, spirit, and barrel/wine presence. Ok.

Bottle at smallbar... Pours completely transparent with a thin wispy white head... White wine and light grapes, little butter and oak aroma... Sweet boozy grapes, butter and grain. Strong and a little overpowering. A little syrupy in the mouth with average level of carbonation. Sweet through the middle and finishes with a little warmth.
