Donkey & Goat

The Gallivanter California Red Blend 2017

Ok. Look. I get it. This is not a wine for everyone. But for a real wine that reflects a winemakers vision of non-interventionist winemaking, this is it. On the nose, very aromatic floral notes, bright red fruit. In the mouth, light high-toned red fruit, some strong acidity... backend of some dill pickles (in a good way). Medium-long finish. My kinda wine. Wouldn’t bring it to someone that likes oaky Cabs.

Day 2 - much richer and darker, more like a 91. Really a well made wine.

Filigreen Farm Pinot Gris 2017

This was a darker rose color than the previous bottle I had about a year ago. Cranberry and unripe strawberry. Didn’t see much of a difference on day 2, but no decline as well. Reminded me of my Grandpa’s cellar. — 16 days ago

Rocklands Farm

Sungold Skin Macerated Pinot Gris

If I am correct I think the grapes came from Pennsylvania. This wasn’t has “funky” and lighter in color than the Donkey & Goat I just had. Great bottle by a local producer, would buy more of this. — a month ago
