Lighter than I remembered- very excellent — 15 days ago
light golden brown, looks like creme soda, medium beaded mousse; ripe berries, toasted hazelnuts, slight herbal tang; medium body, 12% ABV; 100% Pinot Noir sourced from Seven Springs Vineyard, zero dosage, disgorged early 2019, bottled and finished in Petaluma by Michael Cruse of Ultramarine; $65 — 25 days ago
I dunno... I think I love this more than ultramarine. Has better acid, that flintyness, and balance. — 7 days ago
Fantastic. Porch pounder but still interesting. 100% carignan is a nice change. Bright and tangy. — 2 months ago
Pours a very pale gold with a hint of peach. Mousse is persistent even 15 mins after pour (yeast protein contribution to bubble structure?)
Nose is fully Spring with apple blossom 🌸, and perfumed skin, hint of spicy roots as ginger/tumeric and some pear.
Fleshy/soft texture. — 3 months ago
Really great. Straight out of the bottle I got highly enjoyable fizzy blackberries. Once it opened up, it was more full bodied and tannic. Paired well if not necessarily “recommended” with penna alla vodka. — a month ago
