Batch 001, cellared on the side.
Pours turbid, dark red, with an ambitious, spritzy head that falls immediately.
Hissing and prickling akin to a Schweppes.
Persistant release of carbonation not evident through the depths of the body, but revealing on the placid surface.
Sour cherries up front in the nose, with peppered leather and dusty boards.
Quite earthy and musty, with warming spice.
Cinnamon bark, anise, cardamon, paprika, dried mint, and schezuan peppercorns step forward as it breathes.
A cedar chest in the loft of a barn, filled with spice satchels, dried cherries, and old leather soles.
Medium bodied, subdued carbonation, but still lively- juicy and crisp.
A moderate amount of tartness leads the pallet, with a zesty cherry kick and a drying woodiness.
Developes warm and spicy, with some continued puckering, and tannic drying.
Finishes lengthy with some playfull, musty funk- and warming, dried citrus zest.
Not over-the-top wild, but already quite complex, and another 3-5 years in the cellar should further "Supplicate" this Vinnie masterpiece further.

Bottle poured into Daredevil tulip glass. Bottle date 010714, consumed and reviewed on 7/19/14.
A: Pours a dark copper with a heavy red tint and a little less than a finger of head that reduces quickly and leaves no collar or lacing.
S: I get the funk and cherries up front, with the Pinot noir in the background complimenting very nicely. Smells crisp and refreshing.
T: The cherries take the lead role, with a strong presence of the wine barrel just behind. The sour comes into play more on the back end.
M: High level of carb, as expected. The sourness leaves a pleasant dry finish.
O: Excellent sour ale from Russian River. The flavor and aroma come together extremely well.
