A pinot noir train wreck. Grainy brown in the glass. Fetid sweet prune, Barbie hair and public-park restroom does its best job tempting you to not taste it, but it’s too late. Not certain what sort of electrical fire and battery acid fruit derivations I’m supposed to be drawing from this, but the searing compost tea in the finish plays ping-pong with the syrup far longer than you wished. Bitter, smelly and acrid from start-to-finish this wine literally makes you want to kill yourself.
