Purple in color, ruby swirls, mostly opaque and bright.  The nose is dominated by Brettanomyces which is a yeast that gives of a very animal/barnyard stink.  It was hard to find anything beneath it.  Medium bodied.  On the palate, there is less Brett but still noticeable.  There is some cherry fruit.  Great acidity.  Slight tannins.  There is some complexity.  For my tastes, the wine was at my limit of tolerance but not past, but for others it was way past.  Look for well stored bottles if you try this and drink sooner than later.  It will be a difficult food match but consider strong flavors such as a Turkish stuffed Eggplant.
