Definitely an earthy, mature, savory wine from the Heights Natural Wine shop in Houston. Tobacco, cherry pit, Coco nibs, tar, bitter almond, strawberry, decomposing leaves, a definite sanguine quality. Bit of cigarette smoke on the finish.
Must be Grenache heavy-- this reminds me of a traditional rioja with 10+ years on it.
This wine is not lacking in complexity. Moderate but enduring tannins and lively acidity, though I wish there was a bit more fruit that tasted as lively as the acidity still feels. Glad I bought it, but it definitely wasn't a party starter at the VanMeurers-- too geeky and funky. — 5 months ago
A very unique one! Like it very much, very Southern. — 5 years ago
Veel lichter dan je gewent bent van rapatel. Maar doet zeker niet onder. Klein aards onder toontje — 4 years ago
