Smells like your kitchen on a Saturday morning.
Warming blueberry pancake syrup, splattering bacon grease, chicory steeped coffee, baked cinnamon and nutmeg, and fresh air passing through open windows directly through a bouquet of violets.
Charismatic and vibrant, it's also chewy with a rich, sweet concentrated core of raisins, dates, and compote.
Not as complex and distinct, and multilayered as I was expecting, but hard to complain in a weekend state of mind. — 8 months ago
Baby’s 1st parcela unica and gotta say, it delivered! I like the Envinate Lousas wines—they’re always pretty good but usually a bit green and not profundo imo. This one started that way but as it opened, the high acid rolled off to reveal an extremely terroir driven wine, ripping w tension and minerality. The Lousas mencias usually give fancy n rhone vibes to me (i.e. entry level jamet), but Seoane had more of a juicy mineral burg thing going on (think Irancy) than a meaty rock thing. The bride observed wisely that this wine tasted very mineral and oceanic, but more like a seaside cliff than a briny beach. — 3 months ago
Deep pigmentation, black olive, dusty old shed, dark fruits. Lighter body than most Syrah and lovely acid. — 10 months ago
