What most Southern Rhône wines aspire to be. Velvety wildberry compote speaking to the Grenache, green peppercorn the Syrah, and a bit of something earthy/sanguine the Mourvèdre all in harmony. No indication on the palate of the labeled 14.5%. Just plain good! — 8 days ago
Delicate but lengthy. Juicy but crisp. Citrusy and herbaceous. Menetou-Salon meets Casablanca Valley. Lemon, star fruit, and fennel. Just nice. — 4 months ago
Pretty much industry standard Dolcetto. Soft and supple dark berries and blueberry skin. A touch hot for 13%. Nice enough with a hot Italian sausage pizza. — 16 days ago
It’s got POP! Seriously bright with lively acid. Punchy raspberry, cranberry, and deep forest floor with complexity that belies its weight. Mmm mmm, good. — 2 months ago
Harmonious sanguine and lingeringly tangy black cherry with a touch of mocha on the slate-y finish. Shows nicely on day two. — 3 months ago
For as dominant as the oak spice is on the nose this is one ripe, juicy, and soft wine. A bit of spice on the back end. Simple satisfaction that was an obvious pair for a cheese and charcuterie plate. — 5 months ago
