Envinate

Lousas Vinas de Aldea Vinos Atlanticos Red Blend 2015

Fresh, organic, sensual. So unbelievably sensual-- deeply perfumed and endlessly complex.
Organic (honestly made me immediately think of wet freshly cut grass that has clumped up underneath the lawnmower. Also, wet forest floor, and bit of smokiness. Bay leaf.) , vegetale (wtf it smells almost like a fresh made bloody Mary plus celery and almost broccoli), meaty (thick cut of bacon), and huge array of red and blue fruit (ripe strawberry, cranberry, acai berry, touch of plum, bit of vine ripe blackberry too).

Acid wonderfully high (and continuing to merge itself nicely back into the fruit as the bottle stays open), tannin mod and deliciously smooth, alcohol mod.

Must note, this is the closest thing to Cote Nuits Pinot that isn't Cote Nuits Pinot... That's a good thing.
This is one of those wines I could write a short story about, and those wines are always fantastic.

Feel like this would hit it's peak at about 2025/2030.

Really shines with some air. Structured Mencia that offers a lot of wine for the money. Ripe, smooth berries with a touch of earth and great acidic balance. — 11 days ago

Fedellos Do Couto

Conasbrancas Ribeira Sacra White Blend 2016

Wild and a little feisty! A lot going on for a tiny brain to perceive. Zippy and bright, the clever dog who chases it’s own tail only to please his adoring owner. — 2 months ago
