Here is another interesting wine from Colorado. Showing a great nose, although still young. Tangy and elegant with a nice mouthfeel, and nice complexity. Alcohol is already nicely integrated.
I let it open up for an hour in a decanter. Has potential to age nicely in the next 5 to 7 years.
A very nice food wine that needs a few years to mature and come to its own. I paired it with a charcuterie board of meats and cheeses.
Grapes actually come from Amador County in California, and are hand-picked and fermented on their own yeast. Aged in American Oak barrels. Unfiltered and unfined.
15% alcohol by volume.

Cloudy magenta in the glass, there’s a unique fruit profile here... intense nose of pomegranate, cranberry, and crunchy underripe fruit. There’s also an unusual funk here - not barnyard or earth, but an almost cheesy or buttermilk thing. Low tannin, high acid, decent length. Wife hated it, and I get why... I loved it with a slight chill! — 25 days ago
Nice almond and lemon, tiny but aggressive bubbles. Fairly acidic. — 18 hours ago
Stunning nose. Mulch, sour and red cherries. Huge mint and menthol. Enormously complex. Tree bark, wood shavings, gorgeous minerality and earth. A divine perfume. Palate is so balanced, so fresh and so pure. Stunning juiciness and purity. But seems to be holding back as Walter always needs mega mega air. Incredible texture and just barely there sweetness and terrific purity. So complex and complete. An amalgam of early and mid season cherries. So juicy. So long. Energetic and mineral. Just a stunner. Concentrated, sappy and structured. Grand Cru all the way. Amazing wine. — 20 days ago
Excellent new world dry Riesling as noted in ‘17. Perhaps even better three years on. Opened for Bob Marie family’s visit to send Anna on to college. Only had three bottles so hopefully one more. — 16 hours ago
