Hundred Suns

Tualatin Estate Gamay Noir 2018

Small lot production, carbonic fermentation, amphora aging, definitely fun craft-oriented stuff. But how good is it? Garnet red, very good clarity, moderate pigment extraction. Graphite and raspberry aromas. Spearmint, raspberry and a tad of blueberry flavor. (Winery tasting notes mention blue fruits and semisweet chocolate, which is strange since I toyed with cocoa and chocolate flavors while tasting initially). Balanced acid, almost light on alcohol but I don’t need it stronger. Moderate astringency and bitterness on finish. This should stand up to further aging, with fruit to last and lots of tannins left to soften. Not a typical choice for this variety, I know, but if you lack the patience to wait, like me, you’ll find this highly drinkable now, depending how tolerant you are with all those tannins. — 15 days ago

Castello dei Rampolla

Sangiovese di S. Lucia 2018

Raised in ‘cocciopesto’ which is an amphora kind of barrel based on clay and lime. Very fruit forward, soft tannins. Way better than I expected. Good job!

Domaine de Noire

Amphora Chinon 2016

Wow, first off, the color is like liquid gold or canary diamonds. It's striking and beautiful, with a nose that's a nice balance between floral and fruity. The flavor is bold and lingering, with a striking acidity that lingers, and then peters away into a gentle flavor of toasted marshmallow. The flavors are crisp Apple, peaches, honeydew, and white and golden fruits, with a gentle gravelly minerality. Great wine. — 2 months ago

Cerasuolo d'Abruzzo Montepulciano 2017

Rose’ of Montepulciano aged in clay amphora. Ruby slippers underneath broad-shoulders. A sturdy wine with a pretty hue.

Red apple, spiced cranberry, scents of an old attic.

Concrete Field Blend White

Normally I don’t post #samples, but this one combined so much esoterica tied up nearly in a bow by a kind human and winemaker: an amphora aged white field blend of 25% Blaufrankisch, 25% Arbiuriou, 25% zweigelt, 13% Savignan Rose, 5% Gruner, 5% Melon de Bourgogne, 2% Petite Arvine and it doesn’t suck. Yes, definitely gimmicky and natty, but in addition to the expected kombucha and bruised apple notes, it has a really pleasing limestone mineral character, along with an exciting texture and tension. Lower on the acid spectrum though... — a month ago
