750mL corked and caged bottle poured into a snifter. Thanks for the bottle Jason!
(A)- Pours a deep deep burgundy red color with slight purple plum edges. Some good white froth formed but dissipated quickly.
(S)- Very ripe and vibrant acidic oak with ripe berry-like fruits. Quite jam-like with cherry, berries, and cassis fruits with some very subtle vanilla graham cracker oak on the finish as it opens up.
(T)- Quite the sour bomb! Very sour and acidic oak dryness but is balanced out very well with some serious jam-like dark fruits: blackberry, boysenberry, cherry, and cassis.
(M)- A great carbonation level amidst a very hefty sourness level. I love how juicy the fruits get in this with in combination with the nice presence of the dry oak really makes this so enjoyable.
(O)- A superb showing of what fruit, oak, and sourness can do together when blended expertly. So very sour, but so very good and welcomed with the incoming of warmer weather. Very easily my favorite Cascade to date!
