thirdeye11 (6019) - Dallas, Texas, USA - OCT 31, 2015
(375ml bottle) An exceptionally deep garnet color with a thick deep purple/red tinged head of fine bubbles. Some nice lacing on this glass too. Nose of tart cherry skin, tart rich cherry fruit, oak, lightly sour bacteria, some lacto in here, touch of pedio perhaps, and some yogurt. Taste is amazing too, deep tart cherry flavor, fairly dry, some oak and tannin here, not overly acidic and no acetic in the least. The finish is possibly my favorite part, prickly natural carbonation, deep cherry flavor rests on the palate, quite dry and a light amount of oak. Delicious. Would love to have this every day.

sebletitje (9033) - Enghien, BELGIUM - OCT 19, 2015
Bouteille 37.5cl, shared with the SHAPE crew, thanks Mark. Couleur intense pourpre-Bourgogne, col crémeux rosâtre. Arôme reste fortement centré sur de belles effluves de cerises, le tout rappelant de suite la 3F Intense Red. Petit rétro de tanin avec un soupçon de note acidulée fruité. Palais est chargé en cerise avec une petite impression de peau et tanin, le profil aigrelet fruité est là mais sans pour cela être trop dominant, retrouve cependant un agréable côté moût qui est vite mis de côté par l’intensité de la cerise.

bottle at home. Pours dark cassis ruby red, with a dark pink head. Intesne cherry aroma, on the sweet side, a bit of nutty aromas as well. Medium body, rather sweet. Taste is cherry explosion.
