    July 15, 2014 - Loved it. Pure red fruit. Spicy and mineral. So juicy.

    May 28, 2014 - Stood this up for a few days then decanted -- had a surprising amount of sediment (no fining or filtering, etc.), so glad I did; I think this might be related to comments about the wine being "milky".

    Wine had a lot of dissolved CO2, so I shook up the decanter a few times and let it off-gas.

    After that, the wine was great, served slightly chilled. Essence of blood orange and raspberries. Pretty lithe and ethereal. I really enjoyed this and would buy more.

    February 1, 2014 - Really not my style of wine. Tried over two days to give it a chance, but just too rustic for my palate. Pinkish-orange color, lots of particulates. Nose of strawberry preserves, with some funk and a bit of volatile acidity. Lots of fizz in the mouth, even on day two. Even though there is not a lot of acidity, it overwhelms the palate with a light but predominant flavor of balsamic vinegar. Slight tart cherry flavor (really not much fruit here) and some bitter almond on the finish. I thought the bottle was bad until I read other tasting notes and realized that it's just the way this wine is...

    January 24, 2014 - More pink than red -- a deep rose hue. Lots of spritz -- when I shook the bottle vigorously, it fizzed up like soda pop. Better on day two when spritz had largely gone. Some natural funk and strawberry jam on the nose/palate. This was a surprisingly good food wine -- the strawberry element played very well with the black pepper in my white bean soup.

    August 1, 2013 - Weird wine.. nose of spicy light red bush fruit and also smells like "Off" the bug spray; maybe deet?

    Sour on the attack and finishes with a milky grain component, which again, is weird. Ultimately I like it but Im not sure what the hell to do with it...
