Im into my sours, and this is a great one. Manages both apricot and plumb flavor and nose with the pluots, though they generally have ,ore plum IMHO. Over the top sour. Not easy drinking, which prevents it from being one of my top sours, but the fruit, intense acidity and carbonation, and fairly heavy oakiness were just fine.
