Lätta röda bär och vulkanisk hetta. Kanske något blått bär också 😀. Påtagligt rökig. Peppar. Järn? Medium + syra. Kan nog ligga ett tag. Etna vs Tennerife 0-3. Bra! — a day ago

W&S Top 100. I didn’t ask if they had the black lava rock vine pits. I can see it in my head. It’s a fine view. — a month ago

Ycoden Daute Isora Baboso Negro

Volcano Essence. Indigenous variety from Canary Islands. Fruity, Peppery and mineral. Bold and complex. Honest and intriguing . Rare and singular... Medium weight with mid to high tannins and balanced acidity. This is a serious wine for serious drinkers. This is a trip into tradition and knowledge. Masterfully crafted in Abona. — 8 days ago

Bodega Chacra

Sin Azufre Pinot Noir

One of the most amazing Pinot Noirs I've had in a long time. Bodega Chacra, an exciting venture by Piero Incisa della Rocchetta - grandson of Tenuta San Guido's (Sassicaia) founder- focused on Pinot Noir. This wine comes from biodynamically farmed 60 year-old vines in the Rio Negro Valley of Patagonia, and as its name suggests, there is no added sulphur (sin azufre). Clean, precise, pure, nothing funky in it. Vibrant, amazing 🍒 — 18 days ago

Vinas Viejas Valle de la Orotova Listan Negro 2017

I grew up in the volcanic area of central Oregon so the smell, taste, and texture of lava is quite familiar to me. Which is what jumps out at me immediately on the nose, “Aa lava,” which is hot when it comes out but cools quickly and dries in hard, sharp chunks. This wine emits a distinctive aroma like hot (dried) Aa lava or asphalt. It is also quite herbal with juniper berries and sagebrush aromas and flavors. I can hardly get fruit here, dark cherry, spicy plum perhaps but the minerality is so interesting, so complex, I don’t even care about the fruit! I feel I could go on about hot rocks and ash and morning after campfire when you burn juniper and olive wood. It’s truly delicious, savory, and special! The acidity is unbelievable given this is a hot climate wine. The tannins are perfectly grippy. Medium long mineral finish makes me think this wine will age quite nicely! — 2 months ago
