2012 Vintage :
A: Nothing too pretty to look at. A very murky red brown and poured a half go get head that didn't last much long.

S: Lots of oak, brett, and a small detection of the cabernet barrel. The cherries aren't all that present, but it is a two year old bottle. By the end of the bottle there's a slight hint of the alcohol.

T: Vinegar, oak, the tannins are drying but a good balance. Cherry is here now, skin and all.

O: Looking forward to the next bottling of this to see how much cherry there is when it's fresh.
