Nice & refreshing with our carnitas thanks to Studio C. — 6 months ago
Wow... so light and fresh and ethereal...
Yet brimming with fruit and spice. Impressive length, as well.
What a wonderful composition this is...
Was told that the blend mixes Riesling, Sauvignon and Friulano, but it has its own character and it really doesn’t resemble any of those three grapes.
Special stuff. — 8 months ago
Ripe melon on the nose. Rich round complex tropical. Pineapple. Mango. River rock- a touch of astringency to balance the ripeness. Creamy without cloying. Oh so very lovely. It calls for soft shelled crab- any seafood really that’s very fresh and simply prepared. Music? Hmmmm. Jazz. Not studio. Live sets that have some ad lib in them. Nothing too controlled. Celebratory. Savor. Raise that- get it out for friends nice glass- to life!!!! — 2 years ago
100% Syrah from vines that’s are 10-65 years old and managed manually for the most part. Fermented in concrete and aged for two years in barrels of various sizes but mostly larger (225L-600L). Popped and poured. This bottle took about ten minutes to open but when it did, ohhhhh baby! On the nose it was a mix of blue fruits, dark cherry, and a high end yoga studio...you know, the ones with incense of sandalwood, gardenia and bergamot...basically everything but the patchouli. On the palate, things got even more interesting with firm blue fruits, tart dark cherries, lightly spiced meats and minerals. The finish lasts for five minutes. In fact, there is crazy effect after a couple of minutes that reminds me of Acmella oleracea (Sichuan buttons or buzz buttons). Absolutely wild! Never had a wine do that. No doubt, this is a Saint-Joseph of the highest level. Definitely a producer to keep an eye out for. — 3 months ago

Gaia birthday present to me shared in her studio, an Austrian orange salty spicy full citrusy — 4 months ago
The blend of Friulano, Sauvignon Blanc and Riesling yields a wine of power and structure. The flesh of the wine, makes this bold enough to hold up to rich meats. The minerality of the wine is beautiful, and the aromatics are complex: floral, savory, perfumed, and fruit filled. The notes of orange blossom, and white peaches waft from the glass with a stony minerality with a perfume of orchids and salt water. The palate is full and round, with no feeling of oak or being too decadent. The bottle age rounded out the sharp edges this wine can present in its youth. Here the texture and acidity have that fantastic marriage between the two that complements the myriad of aromatics and flavors that is packed in this wine. — 7 months ago
