375 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Deep brown body. Deep red flecks, almost purple. Off white head and a nice collar.

Smell - Deep berry. Sharp wine-like acidity. Some vanilla. Oak.

Taste - Lots of red wine sourness. I guess that's berry fruitiness manifested as red wine. Oak is strong. Light vanilla. Lingering astringent sourness.

Mouthfeel - Very intense sourness. Medium carbonation.

Overall - Too sour for me, but the flavors are nice until they're overwhelmed. (497 characters)
