Smells of rich balsamic and deep purple grape. Thick dark purple color with a very vibrant red hue head. The thick body but light balsamic body carefully unfolds every delicious flavor a tart purple grape has to offer.

Fra flaske på Mi2, Cardinal aug-15: mørk, dyp blårød med kort blåbærfarget skum. Full overhaling av sanseapparatet (perfekt plassert i kveldens program, etter en barleywine og en scitch ale) og fjerning av plakk. Deilig sur og frisk og ikke alt for tørr. Får jammen lyst til å gå på bærtur til helga.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
375 ml bottle to snifter (shared with the Mrs.). Looks good; a very hazy dark cherry purple with blueberry flesh head that steadily dissipates into lacing. You can almost see the fruit in it. Smells of semi-tart blueberries alongside well-balanced notes of balsamic vinegar. Tastes like it smells, but more tart and fruity, and with less of a balsamic presence. Mouthfeel is medium-bodied and fairly tart, Enjoyable, but the nose is more complex than the taste.
