Reviewed from notes. On tap @ the Daily Pint.

Rusack Winery petite syrah aged in Sea Smoke pinot noir barrels.

A: Pours a dark, dirty brown with thin 1/4" off-white head which leaves a few spots of lace.

N: Vinous, roasted malts, cocoa powder, and mildly tart red wine grapes with some coffee notes, woody oak, basalmic and berries.

T: Interesting mingling of flower petals, vanilla, berries, earthy charred wood, tart red wine, and lots of roast. Well balanced for such a melange.

M: Medium body and moderate carbonation. Slightly clean bitterness and smooth vinous finish.

O: Enjoyable and unique.
