    September 28, 2017 - Clearly many of these are spoiled with something profoundly nasty given the reviews, but mine was not. Lovely and completely unobjectionable, if opinionated, Cab Franc. Chalk, sour cherry. Unfiltered. Would love another bottle.

    August 29, 2014 - Just as horrible and full of lactic spoilage as prior bottles. Nasty. Full of nasty, purple-white, fluffy sediment that either fed or was produced by the spoilage organism.

    May 13, 2014 - I don't get all the hate for this wine. Is it the best bottle of wine I've ever tasted? No. But is it a decent mid week sipper along with a casual dinner? Sure. I probably wouldn't spend $20 on it again -- there are definitely better QPRs, but it is not an 80 point wine in my opinion.

    April 8, 2014 - So consistently bad, that sour milk and fur flavor overwhelms the palate. About a cup of blast-furnaced coke-like sludge in the bottom along with that fluffy white spoilage organism overwhelming this HOS. Just bad, bad, bad and all that natural winemaking SHOULD NEVER BE. Use the technology.

    December 16, 2013 - I'm with guitarguy, this was nasty! Sourmilk aftertaste with a hint of almonds. Another lesson in Rimmerman's words getting me to buy something I can't stand. At least I'm educated enough not to buy this again.
