Bottled 11/22/13. Reviewed 5/2/14, typed this from notes. Poured into RR -tion stemware.

A - Rusty brown, small off white collar.

S - Currant, licorice, sour grapes, and a bit of barnyard funk.

T - Cab barrels definitely shine through. Red wine with a big acidity and a medley of dark fruit notes in the back. I get some currant, raisin, and fig.

M - Dissipating, highly carbed and very refreshing.

O - Another amazing sour from RR. Murders other currant based sours I've had thus far.
