Vintage 2008, poured from a corked and caged 750 into a tulip.
Pours a dark maroon color, almost brown when not in the light. Extreme soda like carbonation right after I opened it, but after about 5 minutes of drinking it seems almost flat. Very low levels of carbonation.
Aroma- Cherries, dark sweet fruit, must, vinegar, lemon peel, and tannins.
Taste- Starts with sweet cherries and must, and become sour and vinegary in the middle of the taste, and end very tannic and oaky, almost red wine like.
Nice mouthfeel with little carbonation and actually a little less crisp and dry than I expected.
Overall a great kriek, but at the $40 price point I may not buy it again.
