    May 1, 2018 - This bottle was much less bretty than my previous one, but there was still a sweaty, leathery aftertaste that was off putting.

    April 21, 2018 - Lots of VA and tons of Brett, this is not good and is undrinkable by day 2. I really wanted to enjoy this producer, but until he increases the SO2 content of his wines, I won’t buy them in America.

    December 6, 2017 - A private dinner (Restaurant Andrew Fairlie **, Gleneagles Hotel, Auchterarder, Scotland): Decanted. Crushed red berries, peaches, flowers and smoky schist, only a hint of barnyard, transparent and pure but with good intensity, juicy and fresh but with rich extract, smooth and supple but with zippy acidity, slightly rough tannins, complete finish, good length.

    October 12, 2017 - PopnPour, tasted over 2 hrs and day 2
    -opaque dark red/purple
    -rich low key sweet ripe dark fruit wet stone
    -med acidity, med/med+ weight, low key dark fruit slight heat not much complexity initially but opens up with iodine garrigue and a mild toasted grain bretty element, med+ tannins; brett running rampant and overwhelms everything else on day 2
    -a little funky and still on the young side
