Perfect white wine. Not to dry, not to sweet — 19 days ago
Holy Merde! Shy on the nose… light lemon yellow. But real complexity and astonishing balance. Classic brioche, lemon, ripe red apple, ripe juicy pear…touch reductive, but what a flavor ride… nice medium weight, long lingering finish.. classic, young match with crab, halibut, snapper…nice evidence for what Old World Chablis can bring to the party. — 6 hours ago
Cers Volant Rosé ‘21
Fresh, herby, with shy red fruit, dried herbs, garrigue, green pepper.
Very nice structure, a touch of tannin, juicy acidity, savoury,herby,fresh, lively.
This has nice energy to it.

Nose: raspberry, blackberry, cassis (?), dust. Subtle herbs, the kind you’d find in some kind of health food herbal tea for what ails you. A little leather.
Taste: absolutely delicious. Weighty, tastes as it smells, but bigger and juicier more red fruit than the nose - yet very balanced, with lots of mineral flavors besides. Not as complex as the very best I’ve had, but extremely tasty. A little more toasty coffee on the palate as you sip it. I may like this better than the Shafer I had recently. 94.

With 6y of age this has nicely mellow and shows savoury, moist undergrowth, fresh mushrooms, shy dark fruit,
On the palate this is really polished & peaking. Light bodied, the tannins polished, juicy, perfectly integrated. Nice purity and precision. Great flow & good length. Wild strawberries, wet moss, a hint of cream. So food friendly, works amazingly week with Cantonese food.
Really good stuff! — 10 hours ago
Quintessential to the history of South Dakota was homemade rhubarb wine! This is a great representation of what tartness can do to balance the sweetness inherent in some of the non-grape wines. Like the tart cherry wines of Michigan, this is iconic of South Dakota. Love it! — a month ago
Yummy semi-sweet wine. Aroma of pears. Very nice on a hot day! — a month ago
Very light lemon yellow color. Tight and shy on first sniff….then high bright lemon/ lime and tart Granny Smith aromas. Crisp, mineral, unoaked, light in weight, a hint reductive initially; then opening up with zingy acidity that tiptoes across the palate. The wine opens beautifully as it warms and works well with yellowfin crudo and Chicken breast Romesco. The low ABV and lively acid make for a long, interesting finish. By far my best Aligote ever. — 3 days ago
