Smells like a middle aged woman was shopping in the tire section of Costco and accidentally dropped her bottle of heavily oaked California chard in the aisle. Weird lightly sweet-tart flavor. Fuck this shit. Avery’s Barrel Aged Series is dead to me.

UPDATED: JAN 25, 2012 Shared bottle at cgarvieuk’s tasting. Smell is balsamic vinegar, very sour and rich. Taste is a sour sherbet, hints of peach. Slightly sweet, acidic aftertaste. Very nice.
