3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.
