The wine was drinkable but some what marred by a bit of Brettanomyces. Lots of swirling in the glass reduced it somewhat but even on the second day it was still noticeable. Good body and a good sense of forest floor mixed in with the fruit, but the I would have preferred that the sweaty horse not walked through those same woods.
Fortunately this was my only bottle of this wine, though I almost wish I had another just to see if it was only this bottle that was flawed.
If nothing else it was a good reminder of the aromas brett can produce.
The lamb chops were delicious.
