National sales manager for Grapes of Spain, a Spanish wine importer; but ombibulous when off duty.
Turning strange w age. Not quite mountain stream, unless it was drainin out of a slightly stagnant pool littered with last autumn's leaves. — 13 days ago
Spectacular nose on this - meter lemon zest, tangerine oil, a lifted slightly earthy pear note. Zesty palate entry with a hint on CO2. I've got bolognese bubbling on the stove and this seems like it could be a happy pairing with that instead just an aperitif.

Moinetto Prosecco DOC, Extra Dry Organic NV.
Pleasantly fizzy. Orchard fruits on the nose, mostly apples. Soft entry. Not very complex, but clean and easy to drink. — 3 months ago
Initially very shy in the nose, when straight from the fridge. With air and warming up it offers nettle, poblano and chive aromas. Crisp, high acid style was a good foil to pasta with favas, bacon, evoo, mint and parmesean. — 4 months ago
April 2017 disgorging.
Complex and harmonious nose, red fruits, autolytic yeast character, toasty/nutty.
Elegabtly balanced and dosage so well integrated where it lifts the fruit, but doesn't read as sweet on the palate. — 17 days ago
Pale in initial pour, gains quite a bit of color w air. On the savory side for domestic PN, but not w cola or oak scents, more soil inflected. Medium plus bodied, robust but balanced alcohol and long finish. This should continue to improve in bottle. Paired w grilled salmon and delicata squash. — 3 months ago
Fruity aromas from a lager? Cloudy presentation? Um, dirty lines or just plain funky. — 3 months ago
Vibrant, pale ruby. Reserved nose, hint of typical warm stone aromas for Priorat, not a lot of fruit, more dried red fruits/fruit leather. On the palate first is the noticable acidity. It has a energy to the tannins that is lively. And the finish is slightly firm and drying, borderline bitter.
I like the amplitude in this wine, but wish it offered a bit more breadth/richness of fruit, especially given its 14.5% alc. May bloom w time in bottle, with air or show more fruit on a different day since this is a biodynamicaly farmed wine. — a month ago
