This pink wine is quite rich in color. Its hue is a cross between salmon orange and copper, looking very much like roses. The nose is a blast of strawberries, green parts and all, with an earthy herbal streak and a line of black pepper. On the palate, the brash rosé comes on like a red wine, with tons of flavor and a refreshing acidity. This wine’s pairing ability can reach from salads’n’seafood territory into pork chops, burgers and cheese plates. — 8 days ago
The 5 years of age have either barely made a dent, or this is drinking beautifully now ( or both): start with the thick yet smooth mouthfeel-if Chenin is sometimes described as cotton wool, this is more like cashmere-& also enough acidity to keep it refreshing. Layers of Chenin style fruit: Granny Smith apple, white flowers, Acadia honey. Just a rock star wine, plays brash compared to Huet’s stateliness. And for about 10$ less, a relative steal.. — 5 months ago
Such a pleasant, perfect patio wine! Don’t want complexity (no wine headache), or a ton of brash or overly berry notes? This Pinot is perfect. Enjoy! — 3 months ago
Understated macération not brash very creamsicle forward not exactly expressive but skins add depth and floral honey dimensions and top smells — 8 months ago
First time tasting this, and Mikey @Mike R was generous enough to bring a bottle for all of us to try.
The name implies brash opulence, but this bottle was nothing like that; quite the opposite. Lots of white pepper on the nose and palate. Notes of fresh tobacco and a whiff of olives on the mid palate. Not sweet or tannic, just moderate in a good way. Gonna take another look on day two, but this is special juice. Love you, @Mike R. — 9 months ago
