2012 bottle (thank you for sharing, daknole). Beautiful lactic and tart raspberry aroma with a strange, herby tang (almost like fresh wildflowers). Incredible clear rose color with a wisp of a tiny-bubbled head. Wow, very tart flavor with some sweet raspberry before the sourness bites hard at the back of the jaw. Well carbed, tart body. Awesome.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: MAR 21, 2013 Personal contribution @ ‘The Adam Jackson Tasting’. Obtained in a trade with Adam. 2012 Vintage. 375 ml bottle sampled. The label is rather fascinatingly bad – I sort of didn’t believe something like this would exist when I saw a picture first. I am intrigued. Bright pink, radiant, light red, little pink head. Nose is tart raspberry, bit simple, mellow sourness, tart, light dust, some lemon, bit easy. Taste is tart raspberry, pits, mellow tartness, very clean, lemon touch, bit easy but lovely, touch wild yeast, light fermenting raspberries, some dust, touch too light,… Quite easy and clean. Not as awesome as Consecration & Supplication but still not too bad – probably cherry > raspberries in sour / not per se as the pure fruit itself.

Bottle. 2012 vintage. Poured a reddish/pink color with a pinkish head. Nice raspberries in the aromas with some funkiness, and wood. Lighter tart finish. Tastes a bit on the thinner side when compared to the aromas, but nice and refreshing.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
2012 Vintage. 375mL bottle, sent from Perrin515 (thanks a lot, Patrick), pours a very vibrant, opaque reddish pink with a small pink-tinted head. Aroma is all raspberries, very potently dominating, not really any of the Temptation base or any sour / wild notes, except maybe a little oak - but this is all raspberries. Flavour brings out potent raspberries upfront immediately, but then it shifts to a funkier, more wild palate, with oak, a little vanilla, and sour raspberries. Very fruity initially, and transitions to become funky, wild, and oaky. Very complex and delicious. One of the best framboises I’ve had to date.
