Tasted non blind. Opened and served immediately. Followed over about two hours.
Garnet to dark garnet color in the glass, clear looking throughout. Nose of birch, raspberries and cherries. Flavors of berries, cherries and plums. Medium acidity, medium tannin, full bodied. Drink now.

Comes together nicely with raspberry nectar, strawberry, white fig, dust, wet bark

Since this bottle was a gift, the PQR was great!

March 4, 2016 - WOW! Amazing flavors, integrated, layers of stuff. Tannins have softened nicely, without giving up the backbone. No cherry/berry soda pop flavors on this one. Spectacular!
