Another gem from Herve Souhaut. Limited production on this Ganay from the Rhone region not know for Gamay. 60-80 yo vines. Very different from what im used to in Gamay. Was still very fruity but also had peppery smoky notes and maybe even some herbs. Dark fruit for sure. Loved it. — 6 months ago

A unicorn wine presents a unicorn experience. First, all hail the Ramisco varietal, explained to me as singular to this area of Portugal and soon to be extinct given the level of building development there. From the label: “the Colares wine región was defined in 1908. The vineyards are planted in the dunes between the hills of sintra and the Atlantic Ocean “. The nose alone is worth the price of admission: vibrates with intensity, red fruits, cut flowers. And this was after drinking an intensely vibrant Syrah by Herve Souhaut!
Taste is somewhere between a medium bodied Rioja and a deep Mercia from Ribera Sacra, minus any traces of barrel aging. Utterly seductive mouthfeel, not unctuous or cloying, almost chewy. An intense pitch of acidity higher up on the register ( hence the Ribera analogy). 38$ for a 500ml bottle. A reminder why sharing wines like these with your homeboys is the only way to live. — 6 months ago
A touch minerally with citrus blend to follow — 2 months ago
Fresh, light gamay with just a hint of holiday spice. Slightly chalky.
Per the winemaker: Alluring aromas of plum, violets, and spice invite you to take a sip and then another, and another. Expect to smell fresh cut violets, iris and peony flowers wrapped in cherry and raspberry with subtle background notes of potting soil. Purchased from Tofino. — 3 months ago
