3.4/5 rDev -11.5%
500 mL bottle poured into a snifter.
Appearance - Deep red, a little murky. Small khaki head. Thin collar.
Smell - Wine aroma and some acidity. Caramel malt. Hint of pepper.
Taste - Pepper right up front. Caramel malt. Some wine and a bit of funk.
Mouthfeel - High carbonation. The peppers are cut a bit. Medium bodied.
Overall - A lot going on, but not sure I really enjoy what's going on.

The nose is definitely from the wine barrels. Acidic, red grapes, booze, oak, vanilla, cinnamon, apple skins, brown sugar, caramel and just the slightest hint of chiles. The nose is very similar to a sour (specifically Russian River Supplication). The taste is odd, complex and intriguing. Cherries, grapes, chiles, red wine, oak, vanilla, caramel, cinnamon, apples, a hint of bitterness and some subtle booziness. Thats a strange list of flavors when I read it over again, haha. Its really fantastic. I'm glad I splurged on it ($26 for 500 ml).

Pours a deep amber to brown in color with a small off white head. In the aroma, quite oaky and notes of red wine. In the taste, dry red wine, oaky and a small alcohol presence. A smooth and medium bodied mouthfeel, with a small dry red wine oakiness in the aftertaste. Big oak, big red wine and small notes of spice, which complimented it quite well.
