DuffMan (6886) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 18, 2013
Bottle, somehow forgotten in the depths of Parksy’s fridge. Hazy red-amber pour with a finely bubbled beige head. Aroma is fruity, spicy, and slightly sour. Tart fruity entry, cranberries come to mind, with spicy chocolate quick to follow. Woody dryness in the finish. Very cool, enjoyable. Beautiful label too I must say.

August 27, 2011 - bottle shared by blankboy at Volo - thanks, Paul!!! Very dark brownish red with a solid creamy beige lasting head. Love that aroma - red wine, light dry oak, lemon, spice, floral - terrific. Taste - I think I found the sour funk - lemon and lemon drop up front, sweet turned sour and wild, some alcohol, all those element swirl around and make me drool - my gut may regret it later, but so, so good. Solid body, just light acidity, airy, yielding a dry oaky finish, with tannin bitterness in the aftertaste - yeah man!

Thanks to yourefragile for sharing this bottle. Served in a SAVOR wine glass during the 2012 Rose Bowl. Pouts a slightly-hazy dark brown color with a nice off-white head and a little bit of lacing. The nose brings some light lactic character with a bit of cherry and stone fruits. Faint earthiness. Favor is pretty similar. Light wine character comes through a bit more here. Light body and good carbonation. Truly solid; not surprising from Upright. Big fan.

Bottle shared at my house. Pours brown with tan head. Nose/taste of peppercorns, caramel, vinous pinot noir notes, orange peel and oak. Well balanced vinegary tartness that compliments and doesn’t overpower. Medium body.

(750ml bottle batch 1 thanks to jyoungsbcp) opaque deep orange pour with creamy tan head. Nose of tart cherry, cranberry, crisp, refreshing. Taste has a bit of metal in it, cranberry (real ones!), currant, blackberry, wine, vinous. Complex. Creamy body, light linger, but really nice.

My bottle (750ml) shared with HogTownHarry & garthicus at Volo. Pours a dark rusty brown with a small lasting frothy off-white head and good lacing on the glass. Aroma is sour along with some red wine, fruit, wood and light spices. Lovely flavour of sour fruit, red wine, light spices, wood and some sweetness. Medium bodied. Simply awesome.
