Château de Trinquevedel

Tavel Rosé Grenache 2020

Watermelon and wet stone nose it just SMELLS thirst-quenching. All that on the palate plus raspberries and a hint of finder lime and pink peppercorn—which is to say floral without being floral. And something sappy and makes me think of the color ultramarine. It is also salmon pink taffeta in texture and feel.
Trinquevedel has historically a favorite of mine—I feel Iike this vintage is a bit more coy than others. A little less generous but give the glass time and it gives up pithy gems. Whether open upfront or mysterious but complex it always keeps me coming back.

@Beth Hamilton thank you for the feedback! It’s funny, I have a weird synesthesia that makes me picture colors and fabrics when I taste wine, but I don’t want to do that if it grossed people out! Can I ask what it is that makes you say “bleck”? Are you imagining putting the fabric in your mouth?

Ha ha no no I’m just picturing salmon pink taffeta dresses of the 80s. With puffed sleeves and stiff skirts.. It makes me think of when everyone was ordering white Zinfandel.  I’d rather drink a wine that was described as a black satin negligé or a lush red velvet cape. But it was definitely evocative! And if that’s what it taste like then that’s what it tastes like! It’s on me for not being enticed by that description.

So delicious. Marzipan. Tiny bubbles. — 6 months ago


Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

Sensual aromas lead in, and then this is so bright on the palate. Over time florals emerge- and glycerine, almost verging on soapy. Dark, transparent and ultramarine fruit. Not too acidic, but bright and lively nonetheless. Cali Cab that you could pair with sushi. — 7 months ago

No mate. It’s a sparkler. In my mind, the best domestic. Damn good one, too!
