- First farmhouse ale ever. It was ok. Got way too close to the pilsner side of the brew world.
- Nose of iron, licorice, vanilla, black currant, blueberry, fresh florals, hint of mint and tomato, closed but seductive aromas. Dark dark ruby color, medium to full bodied. Aerated for over an hour, poured into glass and sat for another 30 mins, doesn't seem wanting to reveal too much. Earth, licorice, cherry, rather firm tannin showing near the mid palate, nicely balanced with tobacco, black fruit finishing. More showing after a long evening, smell of violet, plum, licorice, chewy, velvety palate, still young it seems. Won't be a spectacular wine, but a nice drinking experience nevertheless.
- Smell of sweet chili, salted caramel, cream brulee, sour apple, cigar, vanilla, gruava, short nose. Taste of tobacco, vanilla, spice, mushroom. Good tannin, not too hard. Dark red, opaque color, close to full body. As a pure cabs, quite easy on the palate, not too powerful, decent silky finish, with a bit of heat. Decent length on finishing. Seems not really build to last, fruit taste vanished rather quickly.
- Very good - not too sweet and not real bubbly - very nice flavor - very very close to "our" wine - Bosc dlarei
