Ruddy brick, with grainy brown edges. Roasted cauliflower, cabbage and ham, all over bright multi-vitamins vomited on the sidewalk. Still, flaccid worm-bedding and plowed Brussels sprouts.
Oh. Dear. Dog. Do I have to taste this? Here is what happens folks when a label decides to play the biologique and natural wine card and also go hi-alcohol, probably from a *natural* approach to everything starting at ripeness, continuing through wild fermentations and ending in limited finishing techniques: of which racking–last time I checked–was still organic. Fat, blustery vegetal bullshit–WHICH ACTUALLY “CONTAINS SULPHITES”–it is putrid but not one-dimensional, having many layers in its horribleness.
In the mouth, a sharp rotten fruit attacks and never lessens its *sharpness* until long after anything interesting has drained off your tastebuds. A secondary bitter Kool-aid concentrate runs up the edges and plays hard into the wet-sawdust finish.
Please make it stop.
