Yes I believe I did a 8-9 week EM on this one. I was worried about this one for a bunch of reasons when very young: weird color, funky aroma, objectionable taste. At one year, when I bottled, it was still pretty funky. My first glimmer of hope was at ~1.5 years old. This one has really demonstrated for me the importance of patience.Thanks. Nice..from funky, odd taste to almost great after a year gives hope for a good result at the end. Did you do some EM?
The move went really well. All the wine is tucked in nicely. I did a 5 week EM on the Forza and am happy I did. It was the first wine I racked in the new wine room. Got a few carboys to bottle.
It’s the unlabeled burgundy bottle stacked on the Seville metal rack. Just a nightmare. I suppose I could avoid the situation and just put those style bottles in the wooden rack; and use the metal rack for Bordeaux style bottles. But now that they’re labeled, I place the bottles with labels up and they don’t slip.Sorry to hear that. This has become a worry for me!
