Nice dark fruit. Short finish and rather round for a Cahors. Definitely on the modern end of the spectrum. — 2 months ago
A riper and brighter vintage than one tasted a few years ago. I don’t really understand the low ratings. Quite honestly, if this was natural wine from a crusty old Slovenian farmer in a mountain town nobody has ever heard of, or a 9th generation hipster Andorran-French winemaker using only a walnut press to make the wine, the wine writers/bloggers would be all over it. This is real, natural wine. Certainly not perfect, and definitely unique. Floral and grapey with decent tannins and acidity. Medium finish. Tiny production of 1500 bottles. 32 bucks. Totally worth it, IMHO. — 4 months ago
Not a terrible price at 99 bucks on a restaurant list... probably closer to 75 for a better value. On the nose, pencil shavings,leather and earth. In the mouth, earthy red fruit, some secondary flavors and good acid. Some unresolved tannins. Good mid palate, medium-long finish. — 3 months ago
Part of the “moving so drink random wine” show... bought at the estate. On the nose, smoky, leathery red fruit. In the mouth, bloody, leathery red fruit/cherries, bright acid, some integrated oak with medium finish. Fairly classic Tempranillo. — 3 months ago
Very shut down. Lightly floral nose, red fruits and tannins. Not an archetype for the region or the vintage, but still well made. — 3 months ago
Super interesting Riesling. On the nose, preserved lemons, hay and beeswax. In the mouth, lemon zest, minerals and steel. Good acidity, but a certain hollowness in the mid palate... it just doesn’t have the “oomph” of the best Rieslings, but certainly iconoclastic. — 3 months ago
