Château Puech Redon

'Pour de Vrai' Petillant Naturel Cinsault Rose 2020

2020. Start of a great meal at Izakaya Koji. Flinty mineral nose that did not carry into the crisp, tart flavors. More bubbles than many Pet-Nats I’ve had. Worked great with our first courses. — 10 days ago

Domaine Tempier

Bandol Mourvedre Blend 2012

One of my favorites! 1hr+ decant. Dark red color. Prime drinking age. Absolutely insane nose of perfume, flowers, earth, and cow shit. Same on the palate with medium depth and finish. So unique and awesome! — 15 days ago

Château Musar

Bekaa Valley Rosé Blend 2018

This was presented double-blind to the Tasting Group. The wine is copper in color with a pinkish hue, possibly due to skin contact. No signs of gas or sediment. No staining of the tears. On the nose, some slight VA, underripe stone fruit, grassy notes, slight petrol notes, olive brine, white pepper and very slightly smoky. On the palate, fruit is more pronounced; bright and tightly coiled. The stone fruits are confirmed…adding quince to the fruit set. The wine is quite floral too and there is a slightly toasted marshmallow thing. The wine is dry. Not tannic. Acid is medium+. Wonderful texture. Guesses were all over the place but when I said that it was not testable, one taster called Chateau Simone Palette Rosé which, is a really great call. Anyway, Musar Rosé ended up being too far a stretch for even this group of seasoned wine geeks. This was my first experience with the 2018 Musar Rosé and I would recommend to hold for a few years an allow to uncoil and flesh out. — 21 days ago
