My kind of wine but I’m predictable. Medium ruby but starting to show age on the rim, day bright. Aromas of violets, GBP, un-spicy jalapeño, black plum, black berries, yet also tart red cherries and cranberries, forest floor, meat, leather. Sweet tobacco on the palate. Dry, medium plus acid, medium plus tannins, medium alcohol, medium minus body. I would personally drink this anytime but could be a perfect fall/winter pick with all of the complexity and warm tertiary aromas. Love. — 4 days ago
Just concluded the annual Fall seclusion at our cabin in the Rangeley lakes region of Maine, mobile service up there is mostly non-existent, after several days I am posting again. Notes are somewhat brief, as my focus is relaxing and watching the Common Loons swimming and diving in the cove in front of our camp.
Nose has washed raspberries, sliced Clementine orange, peach skin and moist chalk.
Palate has dried orange, partially-dried cherry, peach skin and (minor) dried raspberry. Light acidity remains, our final bottle, this was a good run. — a day ago
Continuing the Loire journey.
A much fresher face of Chenin, without the honeyed breadth but with what depth & purity!
Green apples, fresh lemon, freshly cut hay & herbs... a touch of beeswax after a while. Super fresh on the palate, with core of juicy, vibrant acidity, with layers of crisp fruit and envigourating minerality woven around it. This will surely gain complexity with time but is already beautiful now. — 13 days ago
Cabernet Franc from the Loire - my first red love. This has all the characteristics of the region but all wound up in a beautiful, gentle sweet aroma. Tart fruit, spice, with a mild bitter finish. This is beautiful! So well integrated for such a young entry-level wine. Unfiltered - noticed the sediment too late..Keep this one to yourself. Will revisit. — a day ago
