Bottled 11Jan2016

Transparent ruby red, with a pink head that quickly dissipates.

Raspberry bud candy on the nose.

Generous raspberry flavour with a light funk, not too tart... Actually a slight residual sweetness as well.

Good body for its weight, surprising that it's not more attenuated.

Pulling off the cork, I smell some powerful peppery notes, and hibiscus.

Appearance is pinkish red, with a large, light pink head that is loudly active and fizzy, but dies very rapidly, almost soda-like. The fluid leaves behind some wine-like legs,

The true nose is peppery oak, very crisp and defined, with nothing muddled at all--herbal, literal rose petal, raspberry, and strawberry. As it warms, some light smoke or cypress develops.

Taste is raspberry and dark cherry skin, light and refreshing, and very bright. Again, these are very fine, pinpointed flavors. A little bitter in aftertaste, again like rose petal, and yes, I've bitten one or two before.

Tart, tingling the back of the throat, but smooth and wine-like. Slightly acetic, semi-wet and crisp, with a slightly fizzy finish.
