reddish brown color, no head. loads of cherry pie in this. i love that aroma. no oak though :( acidity is about a 9/10, persimmon and peaches come to mind. not woody at all with a faint lemonade flavor.thin, sadly not the best.

Bottle shared by me at RBSG thanks to Craig. Pours a clear amber color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have tart dark fruits, caramel, wood, some acidity, oak, very drinkable, some sweetness, some vinous character, solid.

6100th rating. Bottle thanks to Dallas. Pours a cloudy copper with small off white head that diminishes to nothing. The aroma is cherry skin, funk, oak. Thin mouth, tart cherry, oak tannins, easy to drink, light acidity, nice sour.

Bottle shared at a tasting. A sour red. Good sour flavor and yeast in the aroma, also some berry flavor, which I attribute to the port barrels. A little vinegar.
