375mL bottle, 2013 vintage. Deep amber color, good clarity. Astounding lack of head, literally none aside from the bubbles that you get from pouring any liquid into a glass from any distance. No complaints, just true. Nice gentle bubbles.

It has aromas of tart cranberries, cherry, red grape or vinous character, leather, vinegar, and tart funky earthy notes. Of course it is tart and sour, but the acidity's restrained enough that I can, and want to, drink more. There is some sweet oak and malt in there too. But honestly, picking out any one flavor is pretty difficult. It is seriously well-balanced, and one of the best sours I've had to date. Fully intend to buy this again, hopefully of the same bottling run.

This is seriously delish.
