gramity (1581) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 1, 2015
Pours a murky purplish hazel with a small kinda fizzy tan head that dissipates fairly quickly leaving a ring that laces pretty well. Aroma is very vinous, oaky, tart cherries, red wine. Flavor is quite tart, mouth puckering and during. Tons of oak and vinous qualities here - Pinot is really coming through, grapey, just a touch of musty funk going on. Finish is lingering tart, lemony, vinous. There might be some oaky astringen
