Delightful herbal aromatics , and when paired with your favorite tonic, a kafir lime kind of thing cones out and really graces the tongue.
Hard to find outside of España. If you do, grab a few! A cult gin from Mahon in Menorca, Xoriguer is one of the only gins in the world (alongside Plymouth) to have a geographical indication, Gin de Menorca. Gin has been made on Menorca since the 18th century British occupation and Xoriguer commands a devoted following of happy travellers. Unusually, Xoriguer is made in wood-fired pot stills from distilled wine (eau-de-vie) rather than the more usual grain-based distillate, and is rested in oak barrels before bottling. — a day ago
Strawberry cotton candy nose,
Way sweeter in style than the label foretells in “Brut” classification
Once this cava sees some oxygen, it really comes into itself. Foamy becomes tight little bubbles. With tart berry and zingy acidity.
Porch wine for sure. — 19 days ago
A nose of oiled cured cumin olives.
The wines grace deserves to be chilled. Chuck an ice cube in, to bring it to cave temp, if need be.
This is where the wine shows it read as a rounded mouthfeel of blackberry, clove, licorice. Dark and persistent smoke, graphite and old belt leather.
A nice long finish and a taste of terroir. This is why you go old world when you can, to find the brilliance in the old ways.
Stinky and delicious, if you have an open mind. — a month ago
This is the kind of wine that is inexpensive, and not that great fresh, yet give it 5 years, and it will turn into a different wine altogether.
Smells of dark roasted fruit.
Black cherry, mint, Horehound, touches of herbaceous root, bright jolly rancher red acidity.
An incredibly delicious wine. Perhaps not your classic style of a CDP, yet still carrying some of that classic rustic ness.

A wild smell of strawberry Quik.
Peach jolly rancher Bellini.
A crazy explosion of flavor here, certainly a perfect wine for the deco. Finished wet with heft, and that lemon head after bite.
I am liking this more and more..
Also, vino-lok enclosure (Glass cork), always a plus in my book, except when, like this winery, they wrap it in plastic. Almost a good environmental solution. Oh well!

A nose like a candied Apple, with hints of hazelnut.
Medium bodied and an explosion of flavor.
All of your classic red and blue berries, high and racy acidity. Long, lingering finish.
This wine has aged beautifully, and is drinking great right now. Perfect hot summertime PN. — 13 days ago
Classic Pais nose, with fermented grape leaves and bacon fat.
This was liberated from the Santiago wine club in Chile.
Lively acidity! Pomegranate seed, cherry skin, hints of apple cider vinegar (subtle acid, in a good way). White pepper berries. If this saw any oak, it shows itself on the rear, only for a moment.
Worth the tipple.
