A fruit leather type of nose,
Cherry - Pom juice swishes around the mouth with hints of vanilla and ash. Iodine; blackberry seed, acid and tannin lip smackingly good.
The patch is from my time in the closest major city to my favorite parts of the Rhine. A good home base. Avignon. — a day ago
A nose of young green cherry bark.
Pom juice with blue fruits, tarragon, touched it roasted oregano. A touch of vanillin on the back end, with fruit skin.
Mid to heavier weight, with a solid fruit/tannin ratio. An innovative and iconic wine. Always worth having one on deck.

Lovely crushed berries make up the nose, like a jam making factory at first pressing.
Fruit leather black raspberry, Ouzo like anise, grit from the cherry pit, blanched plum.
Ending in tonsil smacking cedar stave,
Love the push for Cab franc in the fertile glacier hewn soils of South America. — 14 days ago
Ripe red plum meat begin the journey of this wine, through the nostrils, lending a great hand with the dark fruit laden heavy bodied wine, with oil brined black olive, and prairie grown herbs.
This year must have been spot on, because this is great juice, with lingering tones of eucalyptus like staves. — 2 days ago
With a clean smell of sweet grass, and ocean mist.
Clean, a good Sake will always have this as a descriptor. Weighty mouthfeel, hints of tropical fleshy fruits- subtlety hints of mango, banana, guanoabana. A touch of fresh cacao pod flesh. And of course the obvious flavors of rice polished to a bran free perfection. A nice, uncloying sweetness allows for ‘this wine to show through the alcohol. — 5 days ago
Smells like canned green Chile’s from New Mexico, and slow roasted portabello mushroom juice.
Delightful on the tongue with blue/black berry, hint of dragonfruit, pine. A Minerality that is a great accompanying back beat. Love the way the zing on this wine lifts the tannin from the tongue in an ethereal way and carries it, for a long,long finish.
Kevin Zraly would approve.
Another great wine at a great price. Perfect recovery from my 4000 ft worth of cycling ascent today. — 7 days ago
A nose of a well crafted, organic fruit popsicle.
First sip tells me this is going to be another enjoyable wine from this producer. Slate plates, topped with a fruit compote that has been melding for a couple of days. Lip smacking acidity that shows this med touched fruit off as it is. Just the slightest hint of iodine, yet that could be from my dental implant uncovering..
Southern France has so much to offer, with well made wine, that showcase the terroir.

Pulverized raspberry and cherry powdered candy- an interesting light and lovely nose.
An entry level like Gamay in flavor and body, touches of vanillin wax poetic with river stone crushed edible flowers, the fruit and mineral playing together and sharing the slighted tinge of natural tannin and sweet art like acidity.
An easily quaffable wine.

Freshly opened pomegranate. Great nose, good fruit.
Cherry, cranberry, sugar free fruit flavors, easy oak, with an interesting sour sop like acid that lingers, for a good while.
What appears to be a little watery at first, comes together after the first couple of glasses. One must attune the pallet to the wine at hand.
This, is a solid wine. — 13 days ago
