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. — 6 months ago
Nice dark fruit. Short finish and rather round for a Cahors. Definitely on the modern end of the spectrum. — 6 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. — 6 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. — 6 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. — 6 months ago
