It’s an unmitigated joy. As a varietal that’s always called Portugal it’s home- Virginia, as evidenced by this vintage in a series of them each improving by the year- May have become the varietals ‘vacation pied a tere’. And while I’m consistently impressed by the work that Stephen Barnard always seems to bring to the tippy top of its class no matter the blend or varietals therein- once again I’m loving this deep & yet fun-loving cuvée.

What a joy this little number is. Leaning more towards something from Burgundy, the unfiltered “Volcanique” from J. Christopher wine’s is a beautifully weighted, broad effort that’s still light on its feet. Luscious soft body rounds to a succulent finish. Yumville. — 6 months ago
