Love this nose. The first of the Thivin single vineyards. The “least serious” but always a favorite. Nose is out of sight. Gorgeous aromas of lipstick like tiny red berry fruit intensity. Rises up like volcanic smoke. It’s expansive to say the least. Really smells crunchy. 19 seems like 14 for me. Maybe with a dash of 16 thrown in. Palate delivers the crunch, the silkiness and refinement this cuvee is known for. Very pure red cherry fruits burst in your mouth and are cleansed with great acidity and engaging minerality. Bright. Really pure, classic and balanced. Not a hair out of place. Long, very well defined red fruits and so much joy make this a perfect wine to take the rainy day blues away. — 7 days ago

Some say Rosè is for pussies. Now, I would never say that, but some people do. All I know is that this wine gave me extended length, width and girth so who’s laughing now! — a month ago
Delicious cab franc. Fruity. Cherry notes. Smooth finish. 2019. — 9 days ago
Beigey, and just barely pink. Crisp, apple and melon and tart on the nose. Taste is really nice. Crisp, acidic and a tad sweeter than I expected. Reminds me a little of a citrus dessert, lightly sweet and creamy. Love. — 24 days ago
But hit of pear (Asian pear?) on the nose and a little just mown lawn. Complex, almost busy, palate darting from one thing to the next: sweet, savory, tart and citric. Long sweet-sour finish. Fantastic!
