Noel de Calabaza, Blend 5
Ruby/Cranberry body with zero foam
Nose is sharp, funky & musty with a distinct "goaty" influence
Flavor is granny smith apples up front, very dry with a light carb. Tart becomes faintly sweet and spicy that yields to a musty/dusty with some oak, red wine and light peppery notes in the finish. As it warms and you pour though the bottle, the sharpness mellows and the musty/oaky notes become stronger with the spice in the finish. Does not have the depth that previous JP offerings exhibited but very tasty and satisfying.
