    August 19, 2019 - So much fun... This still showed just a bit of spritz upon opening. On the nose this was a bit dirty, very peppery and a nice red fruit nose coming through. On the palate it was light and fun, with great depth. This was a perfect balance of fun and serious wine. Tasted with 3-4 other nice wines and this was almost every bodies favorite.

    I was scared that at 10 years it would be past it's prime, but it was still lovely... Heading to the Loire in a few weeks, going to have to track down more of their wine

    April 30, 2018 - sweaty, rose petals, some light balsamic.
    palate - light body, acidic, band aids, dried leaves, some stewed fruit. Tastes a little over the hill, and the brett is more prominent now than I remember previously.

    January 27, 2018 - Garagiste selection. 13.0% ABV

    Color: brownish brick
    Aroma: initial bottle stink; nose closed; opened a bit with herbal aromas;
    some alcohol
    Body/flavor: rounded medium body; not distinctive flavors
    Aftertaste: short finish

    Cork showed some seepage.

    September 22, 2017 - showing signs of fading, but very nice earthy notes and complexity. The brett is there too, in the background.

    May 9, 2015 - Similar notes to 4/19/2014. If you have the Zuni Cafe cookbook and make the Zuni Roast Chicken, you have found your ideal wine pairing. Perfect match, due in part to the modest to light body and the zingy upfront acid that matches the acid in the bread salad while also cutting through the modest amount of fat in the dish (crisp skin, legs, thighs).
