Firestone Walker Agrestic (2019)
What the brewers say
"Wood-derived toast, lemon pith, and rosewood swirl on the nose and palate, followed by a harmony of vanilla, coconut, and Earl Grey tea."
What our panel thought
"Malt-forward and pleasantly tart with balanced in acidity. Hints of roast malt and smoke accentuate the tartness and oak-derived tannins and vanillin amplifying the acidity."
What our editors thought
"A sweet, woody, tannic, berry nose with notes of sherry and lighter red-wine grape flows into a sip that echoes orange wines—tannic, rich, and a bit sweet with everything from grape skin to tropical fruit and citrus."
