This bottle was off dry. But in a really nice way.
Not sure what happened. The other renaissance wines we've had were definitely dry, a lot of variance bottle to bottle though.
Pretty ruby with brown showing thru the edges. Red spiced fruit and that mild sweetness. Barely noticeable tannins. — 13 days ago

Vendage Tardive 100% Roussanne.
A savory late harvest wine, best paired with savory vs. sweet food.
California earthy soil profile, golden grass, tea-like tannin, Chrysanthemum bitter, candle wax. Clean Acidity, not notably sweet.
Very good late harvest savory wine, not dessert sweet.

Black Cherry, Blackberry , dark bottle notes pair well with mellow char/plank notes. Some sediment noticeable (filter or live on the edge). Hour decant.
Enjoy with fresh black cherry chutney (natural & acidic, not sweetened sweet) pair with stewed beef, grilled ribs, planked salmon (lil’crispy and savory edges), plenty of acidity to cut through, will not stand up to overtly heavy flavors (KC Masterpiece not-so-much), err in classy aged, fruit accented direction. Personally paired with Hickory planked Salmon (could of used a pinch of fruit & acidity)... simple steak or Portobello also work.
Earmark for Black Cherry & Blackberry season. — 4 months ago
