Tart cherries are the star of the show, commanding the nose over a background of musty leather and hints of spice that suggest a cinnamon or nutmeg. Taste buds are blasted by the cherries, sour and and drying, with lesser notes of apricot, green apple, and tart grape. Somehow manages to offer a hint of sweetness along the middle before cranking up the pucker factor on the finish. Really nice funky, dusty oak note throughout. This is just outstanding.
