Oxblood on the eyes, and tastes like the beginnings of mulled cranberry juice, tart with a good dose of cinnamon, being whipped up by a dusty wind and grounded with grippy tannins. It's on the simple side, but a great deal around ~$22. — a month ago
Good clean fun. Greets you with pears & fresh laundry and opens up like a cracked aloe leaf, salted and oozing with watermelon & strawberries. Sudsy & unfussy, this is a weekend with friends wine if there ever was one. — 14 days ago
Looks like gauze made from the brightest tropical coral. Smells like bing cherry morning dew dripping off cold gardenias. Tastes like you're devouring a watermelon filled with pomegranate juice trimmed with limestone, lemon rinds, and almond shavings. Refreshingly modern with a depth of terroir and tradition. Mio cuore canta (one of three Italian phrases I have DOWN). — 20 days ago
The Laurent Labled "On est su l'Sable" tastes like diving head first into a pool of chilled raspberry juice & floating around on a cinnamon stick pool noodle while a salty, limestone breeze whisps* by. Light, tart, refreshing; a fun take on Cab Franc for sure & a lovely way to spend an afternoon.
*Whisps is not a word but u can't tell me nothin'. — 2 months ago
