2013 cellared 16 months

Pours fizzy murky amber and grapefruit in color. Smell has deep acidic and slight vinegar aroma with notes of berry, hay, and hints of wine an oak. Taste follows nose with a nice tart acidic crisp flavor forward before a ripe berry and sour vinigar flavor. Oak and wine finish. Mouthfeel is crisp, tart, sticky, moderately carbonated and finishs dry.
