Ultreia Saint Jacques Mencía 2018

very confused 🙈 tasting.

black olives and black pepper screamed syrah. red fruit and jaminess called for granache. but medium + acidity added confusion.

i was gambling a south rhone blend but something felt very Spanish. 🧩

this is mostly mensia 🍇 with bastardo and granache tintorera.

medium + acidity
medium - tannins
medium + body

zippy fresh red fruit with some raspberry jam, black olives, black pepper and a bit of oak spices and green pepper on the side.

medium + 🎯

perfect bistro (or the Spanish equivalent term) wine.
paired lovely with roasted 🥔, veggie hot dogs and cabbage with tahini and feta style cheese.
worked great with the salty feta.

2 hours later it opened up nicely with tannins felt more and a silkier texture.

very hard to stop drinking it, slowly.

North Coast Trousseau 2019

Typically grown in Jura region of Switzerland or Duoro region of Portugal. Light body with rusty red brown hues. Considered a farming grape or “bastardo” in Portugal 🤣 it’s lovely! Would pair with margarita pizza (can hold up to marinara or Bolognese). Best to drink young (same with their Gamay Noir) — 4 years ago

Combe Ballard Canyon Trousseau 2019

Only the 6th vintage of this exciting wine made of Trousseau grapes (aka Bastardo) which is for example used in port. Cloudy, viscous, rather dark color; pinot noir-like nose with added selleri, te leaves, and vanillin; red-fruity and sumptuous on the palate, great midpalate and finish, and with a kick from the respectable acid levels. Yes, it is light bodied and juicy; but Yes it is delicious. Best I can put it: a mix between a Julienas gamay, a NZ pinot noir, and a dash of cool aid. Had with Danish Vesterhavs-cheese, lomo iberico and green tomato marmelade. — 2 years ago
