Viña La Rosa

Franz Haas

Alto Adige Moscato Rosa 2018

Lyle Fass
9.7

This is a novel wine. It’s Red Muscat that is served chilled like a white wine. It is easily one of Italy’s most unique and greatest wines. It has the character of wines in other styles that cost thousands of dollars but because it’s such a freaky grape and made in a freaky style, (11.5% almost like a Kabinett Red Wine) it’s not that expensive. Still it’s great. Truly epic. Like a dessert at a 3 star Michelin that centers around some insane sauce. This is the vinous equivalent of that sauce. The nose is floral to a degree that using floral to describe any other wine is an insult to this wine. It’s minty and smells almost like an apothecary in God’s waiting room. It’s got roses. I mean in your face yet subtle and beautiful roses. There’s also fresh green shrubbery. Like walking into a freshly manicured British aristocrat’s family garden. There’s deep black cherry skins. It’s pungent and potent but also haunting and beautiful. The palate tho! They combo of fresh/sweet/ electric sweetness and a guided decadence. Perfect balance. Insanely pure. Willi Schaefer vibes here. Gorgeous sweet tannins and a deliciousness that is rare in this world. After air the nose has green and oolong tea aromas. Just a mesmerizing nose. Palate and nose are 50/50. This is not a perfect wine but it’s perfect for me. 9.7. — 7 days ago

@Lyle Fass You'd better put 'freak show' in the offer name, or I'm gonna forget for sure. By then I'll be in the middle of reconciling the F20 ship. (The wife is gonna kill me when she sees all the boxes coming this time.)

A fairly light version of the grape. California just doesn’t do chard as well as the French. — 15 days ago

La Rosa Barolo Nebbiolo 1990

Quite inky still. Dark morose red fruit. Hints of drying wood at the edges. Quite broad and complex. Resolved but certainly still fresh. Roses. Very good. — a month ago
