UPDATED: MAR 27, 2014 Bottle: Deep brown mahogany and mostly opaque with a huge, chunky khaki head that settles slowly. Aroma is sour, funky cherry skins. Tart with a dry, musty funk far in the background. Light vanilla and some dry oak in the finish. Taste is plenty of sour cherries and sour grapes with a big vinous and oak flavors. Very nice tartness, gets the saliva glands sweating big-time. Sweet, dying tartness, cherry and grape, oaky finish. Tasty stuff, seems to have more bottle variation than most other Cascades; some bottles have a mild medicinal tone, others are completely void.

750ml 2013 bottle pours cloudy dark brown red with small head. Nose is acidic, wet earth, cherry, cola, vinegar, light wet forest funk. Taste is high acidity, earthy, wet ground, damp wood, flemish-red character, cherry and dark tart berry. Not much complexity. Finishes sour, cherry red vinegarette, wet ground, subtle oak vanilla, toast. Fine but simplistic.
