4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle split with my friend Duncan. A deep purple pour with a wispy pink head. The aroma is an intense rich cherry, Maraschino black cherries, super sweet in the aroma. Full bodied with a round carbonation much sweeter than the blueberry it is a tart candied dark cherry with a tart sweetness to it. Terrific. Great stuff, the blueberry was damn good but this is even better.
My favorite of the night.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours ruby red color with a cloudy dark red body with a pinkish head. Aroma is mostly cherry, resiny and floral sweetness. These characters are instant. Taste follows the nose. Mostly cherry with a touch of bubblegum and cloves. Some licorice smell to it. It’s still a Spontan so there is this wild yeastery character to it. Very flavorful. Mouthfeel is not as heavily bodied as you might think. I’d say medium-bodied

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
nottle at home, compared to the other versions.
Chardonnay version: Pours a bit lighter than the other two (whereas te Malaga wine barrel is the darkest of them all). Aromas are hidden, after some heavy swirling some vinious Pinot Noir notes and blueberries. Soft mellow mouthfeel, taste is cherry peel and some tannins as well.
Malaga version: a lot more dark fruit in the nose and a bit of the Spanish rich alcohol that one can find in the Southern wines. Meaty and animal scents, this goes very close to wine! Body is also more alcoholic and tannine-rich. Preference foes to this one over the other two varieties.
