"Rediscovered" in the cellar. Bottled 2-19-10. Batch 346/348. Finally time to open this from a very long time ago trade.

Poured from a 330ml stubby bottle a dirty amberish copper with nearly 200 white bubbles around the rim and leaving a few spots of lace. Aroma is oak tannins, dark fruit skins, mild funk/barnyard, earthy and acetic. Flavor is mellow and mildly tart, oak corked wood, some oxidation as would be expected but not as much as I thought it might be. Semi-medium body and very light carbonation. Finishes tart and faintly fruity and tannic. Perhaps a shadow of its former self, but still very enjoyable.
