Ridded w/ biological activity in this bottle, from slight spritz, volatility, and considerable particulate and haze. Quite possibly the most 4-EP/4-EG riddled wine I’ve had. This had been in the cellar for a bit, curious what a day will do. After 2 hours some musky fruit was beginning to show. A little disappointed but bottle variation and “living” wines are par for the course w/ Barral. Day 2: overwhelming brett and mousiness 😂😂😂

Second time tasting this wine with different vintage. Earthy, herbal, a little funky, dark berry and cherry note, menthol with wet potting soil, unripe to ripe fruit notes. Distinctive on the nose but tasty!

Red fruits, black pepper, spices. Some crunchy tannins. A touch of meat.
