Very dark. Purple urple. Smell is funky, and streaked with a jam of the vine. Flavors are full and tasty. Ripe, and bright. Reminds me of the great WA Malbec I had once. Past that grape Koolaide of Malbec you get sometimes. — 10 days ago
Cor muito intensa e escura, com bastante corpo na taça. O aroma é intenso, não amadeirado, lembra sabor de frutas e couro, com taninos fortes. A Silvia não gostou por conta do tanino, mas eu gostei. — a month ago
A superb Vespolina. Unreal nose of blackberry pastille, cherry flower, spices, herbs and tons of lavender. What a nose. Gorgeous. Clearly defined. Soil tones and intense fruit on the nose. A sick nose. Really blown away. Palate has that same clearly defined fruit with typical rustic Vespolina tannins and awesome jelly donut fruit with huge mineral and terrific freshness. Nose becomes pretty floral as well with air. Really refined for Vespolina and super long finish and wonderful fruit purity on the finish. So wonderful and La Badina’s secret weapon.
With air this has gone from 9.3 to 9.4. Stunning depth and texture and extraordinarily long finish. Just awesome. — a month ago
2016 vintage. Espresso, black olive, cassis and mint in the nose. Big dark cherry exclamation point in the middle of the proceedings. This one needs a solid five years + to properly evaluate...tastes like it’s hiding a deep dark delicious secret to be revealed at the proper time. — 9 hours ago
A beautiful Pinot Noir from a secret location in the Santa Maria Valley — 2 months ago
Beautiful bottle in the style of which our Swiss friends have the secret. Diolinoir grape variety reminiscent of Syrah with less violette notes. Black fruits, sharp acidity, and drying tannins. Spicy. Flexible and marked by liquorice. Good balance. 🇨🇭
Belle quille dans le style dont nos amis suisses ont le secret. Diolinoir cépage évoquant la Syrah avec les notes de violette en moins. Fruits noirs, acidité vive, et tanins asséchants. Épicés. Souple et marqué par la réglisse. Bel équilibre.🇨🇭 — 19 days ago
