Dark ruby and staining. Musty wet paper dogshit on a lawn nose buried in flabby oak. In the mouth, an instantaneous hit of that distinct home-wine nuance. What is it? Not even sure what the descriptor is, but one you’ve tasted it you never forget it. Not horribly VA, and not terribly wet concrete–it’s a weird middle ground of way too high pH no fruit nothing interesting anywhere and OMG what am I even trying to do this wine is bullshit crap I’m done typing.
