Community Tasting Notes 2

    September 10, 2009 - Nice tropical fruit, a touch of citrus and playdoh in a good way on the nose. Tart and brassy with that mustard green taste but more harmonized than I recall from last time. I still get the slight oxidized flavor in the finish.

    June 21, 2008 - Drank enjoyably and uncritically with dinner. Here are some of the things we noticed. This is a unique and unusual wine. It had what we call a skanky nose at first. That isn't necessarily bad and got better as time went on. It had substantial acidity and some mustard green (herbal) and spicy flavors. Cinnamon and nutmeg. It matched well with asparagus (!) and salmon and grilled onions. The acidity pretty much took care of all flavors. There was also a bit of oxidized, sherry flavor in there somewhere which I assume came from the ver jus that was stored and added back. An enjoyable drinking experience but not at all typical.
