Former somm and wine writer. I love meditative reds and all things bubbly. WSET 3. CSW.

Clean, with notes of cherry, spice, and porcini. — 3 years ago
Not a PAP. It’s a bone dry, bristly, dry red with fine but ample tannins. Black fruits and flowers on palate. Needs fatty food to work. Too austere and tannic to sip as cocktail wine. — 3 years ago
Buttload of buttered toast, pecan, marzipan, and some overwhelmed golden pear. Delicious in small doses. — 3 years ago
Stewed raspberry and red cassis. Micro fine tannins. Smoooooth. Pretty varietally correct overall. — 3 years ago
Stewed black fruits, polished tannins. Simple, but delicious. — 3 years ago
Bricking and some thrown sediment. Strong earthy nose, with gravel, moss, raisin, and red fruit. — 3 years ago
