750ml bottle from the brewery.

A: Deep purple bordering on a shade of midnight. Very thin berry colored foam. Slides off glass.

N: Red and green grape. Lactic acid as expected. Currants and plums. Fair amount of acetone and glue. More sharp lactic acid and some leather from the pinot barrels.

T: Tons of sharp lactic acid. Leather and currants. Sweet tarts, lemon,and sour clementine. Plums and vinous grapes. Some tannins.

M: Oily and slick, as is the Cascade norm. Alcohol is light.

O: Don’t know how much this has benefited from extended aging in the barrel. Puckeringly sour and lacking dimension. Meh. It doesn’t taste bad, but it no beauty, either.
