I drink wine. And sometimes I write about it. WSET Level 2.
Nice berry explosions in my mouth... lots of tobacco, allspice, a bit of firewood on the nose. It’s tannins are super prominent and I think this will drink better in a few years. Glad I used to coravin to sneak a taste! #nakedwines #chillfriday #bordeauxblend #youngwine #redwine #fridaywine @nakedwines @jonathanmalthus — 2 years ago
Rosé all day? F*** that... Rosé always! I confess: I'm a born hater of anything that gets trendy seemingly for the sake of it... and I soooo want to hate rosé. All the hipsters and millennials are losing their oeneophiliac sh*t over pink wine these days, and I'm gonna be the killjoy that says, "Oh yeah, well the motherf*n' French knew what was up with Rosé forever ago... like, since 2009? So stop acting like you New World millennial sh*ts discovered it because you ain't that cool...
Okay I will step off the soapbox long enough to tell you this is a yum-tastic, easy-drinking punchbowl of rosé goodness that you noob wine dweebs seem to love. I got mine at Trader Joe's, if you must know (I was in a hurry, couldn't get to the wine shop, don't judge)... anyhoo, if you spy this on a shelf near you, grab a couple bottles for your next picnic, and instagram the f*ck outta this pretty pink princess of bubbly. It's crisp, refreshing, and slightly tangy, like sweet tarts mixed with ripe peaches, and a hint of lychee on the finish. Never heard of lychee? We'll get on it and Wikipedia that sh*t because it's a fancy Japanese fruit you gotta try if you want to be all multicultural and stuff. #roseallday #yeahisaidit #ifyoucantbeatem #lavieenrose #getoffmylawn — 3 years ago
Sigh... Just not a fan of these natural wines that smell like a cross between the foot 👣👣👣of the farmer who picked the grapes and the dank basement of a cheap vinegar factory🤭. So anyway I’ll try my best not to tear it down too much. 🤣
Deep garnet in color, aroma of cellar floor, dried prunes, barnyard funk and Blue cheese.
High acidity, bold and bright tannins with a hint of that Sangiovese berry flavor but it’s really overpowered by the spicy ness and musky essence.

Not my favorite. Has a harsh ending on the palate. Very lemony. Might be able to salvage by turning it into white sangria! — 3 years ago
Now, gamay is not my favorite grape... but I'm working on being objective for the sake of my career, so I'm going to attempt to tell you about this quality Beaujolais Cru. It's got a nice bouquet of mulberry and pomegranate mixed with some earthy notes of tree bark or potting soil. The primary flavor is sour cherry with hints of red currant, and there's a touch of green peppercorn on the finish. It's got a pretty high acidity, combined with more tannin than I'd expect from this particular style of wine. Unfortunately this wind doesn't seem well-balanced to me, but again Gamay is not my forté, so drink with caution if you're not big on Beaujolais! — 3 years ago
