Deep brownish hue with reddish highlights with minimal head or lace. The aroma has a big sour fruit (red grapes and cherries) and oak vapour along with some walnut and chocolate, continuous lactic acid. The taste has a sour fruity overtone with some sweet malt background. Wine barrel tannic finish. The mouth feel is soft and refreshing. This will be nice with some more age methinks
