Poured from a 750 cork and cage into a snifter, the beer is a deep, ruby-red color. Very vibrant in the light, with a steady flow of carbonation feeding the tall, bubbly, foamy, off-white head. Nose of tart cherries, dry Merlot notes, earthy highlights, and subtle sourness. Flavors are smooth and sweet cherry forward, followed by rich berry blends, tart grape, earthy highlights, woody notes, and some sugary sweetness lingering about here and there. The sour notes are very mellow (this bottle has a couple of years on it). Smooth and light bodied, with a dry and crisp finish. Solid cherry sweet aftertaste, again with hints of sourness. Very drinkable.
