I have a fascination and tend to like the wines from Corsica, a lot. It's been a while for this one at 9 years old but it is drinking beautifully now with room to go!
Really nice, like a hypothetical blend of a Chianti Classico and a Bandol Rouge. Darker with no bricking yet so it's holding up very well for 9 years of age. The nose and palate are very expressive with red and blue fruits, spice, and a nice tension from the acidity that keeps things fresh, while the fruit and spice abound. Slightly more than medium in body, tannin and acidity, the alcohol is med+ on the label but tastes integrated. Nose, palate and finish are med+. All in harmony here and has another 5+ easy. — 2 months ago
Fruity, flinty, and alcohol nose. Dry, slightly tannic, and lighter than expected. Gorgeous purple color. — 10 days ago
Rich rustic but not chewy. Blood and cherry. Cranberry. — 14 days ago
Candy red strawberries, fresh cut grass amd raspberries, some tannins hanging in there, elegant pass with a dry red fruit end. Love the ahit, excuse my French — a month ago
Supremely good blanc “vermouth” - actually quinquina. Pickled peppers, honeysuckle, mineral, barnyard. Damn cool stuff — 15 days ago
Raisin walnut - mild bitterness - less complex and alluring than the white. — 15 days ago
Excellent with cheese. — a month ago
Garnet verging on brick.
I smell very earthy aromas; horse farm, camp fire and soot.
A real stranger on the pallete. First I'm hit with a red fruit, not cherry or any of the common fruit notes- something more natural and tart, not as tart as a cranberry but I'm thinking of mixed dried currants with fresh goose berries and the Sirah comes through with a touch of black pepper and there is just a touch of effervescence from this natural creation.
