maneliquor (2995) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - FEB 23, 2014
Bottle shared in London for my farewell drinks. Picked this one up at Kris Wines I think. Pours clearish mahogany with a small beige head. Nose is plenty of ripe berries with some tartiness as you’d expect, slightly acidic, grapefruit, zesty and milk chocolate. Lots going on but balanced decently. Taste is like a sour Pinot Noir. Think black cherries, tarty blueberry, dusty chocolate, raisins and some bretty tang. A nice red wine finish with some coconut and spice in there. A lot happening but works quite well. Solid drop

BenH (2144) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUN 17, 2012
Tap at brewdog. Near black with tan head. Aroma has funky sherbet Brett up front, then some chocolate, molasses, brown sugar, vanilla. Taste has Brett, sweet brown sugar, molasses, hint of licorice, hint of chocolate. Sickly sweet with a sour finish. This doesn’t work for me, I found it quite unpleasant
