    March 15, 2020 - As a previous taster noted, this is likely not for everyone - but boy it sure was for us! Opened for my wife's birthday - the nose initially leaps from the glass to showcase a multidimensional bouquet of barnyard, damp earth, tobacco, bright red fruits, and a touch of mint. It was a bit harsh in the mouth at first, so we decanted. The nose then evolved to reveal notes of mocha, spice, cedar, and a plethora of herbs, eucalyptus, and hints of bacon and roasted game. It was probably at its best 3-4 hours in, at which point it gained weight, evolving into a super lavish mid-palate featuring rich and expansive dark fruits flavors melded with licorice, spice, coffee, and cocoa. It's not as big or massive as the '07, but definitely a bit more expressive and nuanced. It was just as good on day 2, though different, even smoother accompanied by emergent notes of raspberry, dried cherry, rosemary, and pepper. Pegau at its best? (my wife gave it a 98)

    March 2, 2020 - obviously some unwanted fermentation in the bottle

    March 1, 2020 - This was a little spritzy out of the bottle but with 20 minutes of air it calmed down. Ripe red fruits, grenache showing strong, brett as you might expect with Pegau. This is a pretty good wine with the right food pairing (worked with ribs tonight) but won't be for everyone. Holding fine but ready to drink. A-

    February 29, 2020 - Opened a bottle I coravined a couple of glasses from a month ago. Didn't listen to my own advise and gave it only about 1 h in the decanter. Very good and very pegau-like but a little too much brett. Will keep my last bottle about 5 years.

    February 21, 2020 - Popped'n poured with Cajun food at RT's in Alexandria. Seems to be drinking well, consistent with prior notes.
