Great modern red from Chile! Second bottle from the wine club at Olmstead, BK. Serve it on the cooler side. Affinities to Jura or the Pacific US Northwest. Slightly effervescent, mineral, wild, herbal and SMOKED. Had it with filet mignon and shiitake mushrooms in red wine sauce, and arugula salad with pears, goat cheese and toasted walnuts. — 13 days ago
I liked it! Serve chilled. When you’re tired of rosé but not feeling like a cold gamay, schiava is the answer. — a month ago
WNH zoom tasting - Gamay night - balanced with low medium acidity and low tannins if any - tons of black cherries and black raspberries- no length but perfect thanksgiving wine - works well with the white tender meat - light to medium body - drink soon and takes a few minutes to open - would serve lightly chilled fir best flavors — 3 days ago
Olivier Riviere La Bastia 2019, one of Riojas young guns and a big part of the postmodern revolution of the region. Le Bastid is a 90% Viura, 10% Garnacha Blanca, fermented and matured in 500 liter French oak barrels.
With resemblance to a good Burgundy the wine opens up with ripe white stonefruit (plum juice, white peaches) and a lemongrass herbiness. Followed by a whiff of toast and nuts that lies over a stoney minerality. Good energy on the palate with a fresh acidity and savoury qualities on the mid palate that brings dimension and complexity through the finish.
Paired with an improvised salmon and shrimp casserole in a mushroom infused velouté topped with fried parsley and sourdough croutons.
Serve it at 10-12 degree in a burgundy glass

Really liked this one as it was a fruit bomb in a good way. Though there are some hints of black cherry, the general flavor profile was bright red crunchy berries. Serve slightly on the chilled side... be careful though, it will disappear quickly. — 10 hours ago
