Dinner with Friends (Edwin's/Our Backyard by the Fire): A couple of our friends love brett in wines. I was going to open an older Pegau, but being 4th of July weekend, American wines were called for. Then I remembered I still had a lone bottle of this. Pop and pour, there is plenty of stink on the nose. A slight dill note as well as a brine quality which to me were separate but someone said pickle juice. In any event, the later blew off with air, while the barnyard was intense. Our friends loved it. Also some black raspberries on the nose. Much cleaner on the palate. This took about 20 minutes to start to open and then kept improving all night. Nice texture. Good complexity. Nice fruit. I can see why some would hate this (my wife did), but I found it complex and intriguing. Not really sorry its my last bottle, but not sorry I opened it anyway.
this wine at a very strange nose. The erroneous were available to chat to a bowl nature, asparagus or artichoke was the background not much food. This was quite of pudding. The flavors have contracted significantly height berry flavors not much editing for definition. Labor was quite short not much of a lingering taste. Overall a fairly unsatisfactory bottle.
