Tuesday night tastings going strong. I’m into this. It is so damn balanced and it changes and evolves n all that good stuff. Oh hell I’ll go WSET style:
Eye: clear medium salmon medium tears.
Nose: delicate intensity and smells like raspberries cranberries vanilla and some sort of green thing which is not a wset term but whatever it’s young
Tongue: dry, acid medium, alcohol medium plus? Checking...oh hell 14.5 so fuck yeah that’s big. Body is medium. Intensity of flavor medium and then you taste the things: peach Melba which is to say peach raspberry vanilla ice cream and then some stones n lavender. Finish medium plus I like it oodles. — 10 days ago
Happy Valentine’s Day! This is a copper beauty - need to open and warm up but then revealed brightness - citrus more than red fruit, slight brioche then limestone - the nose is big and round. The palette is expansive - just so full, some cherry and malo, then grapefruit, red fruit, with some flowers in the background, I can’t believe how balanced this is. Can almost smell the oak. The finish is long, starts with an acidic bite and mellows with the fruit slowly fading away. Wow. — a day ago
Wow. This one has been sitting in my fridge for a while and with the weather so warm I decided to open up a rose. I didn’t realize how much I would enjoy this and didn’t realize how truly special and rare this was until I opened my notes (thank you JR!). This is a stunning example of what the Germans can do with Pinot noir. Beautiful harmony throughout. Notes of rose pedal that will knock your socks off. Just 75 cases produced. — 10 days ago
Very interesting rose!!!! Pinot noir grape combined with Pinot Gris in a beautiful rich deep pink color. Let me tell you don’t let the bright pink fool you. This is a dry wine that is complex and a bit complicated. White peach and pink grapefruit on first taste with a red wine start and a white wine finish. It’s like too different flavors in your mouth and it’s hard to figure out what you are tasting. Good wine that is a little complicated. Definitely try this one!!!!! — 2 days ago
This stuff is the stuff. Alone it is more viscous than wine and less than a syrup and it has flowers and lime and hot fuck I’ve bought many bottles over the last year or so. Bright sweet tangy and luxurious but also ready to go dance it is the friend who is always magically in the same mood as you. — 18 days ago
