Nose of pine needles, mint, anise, chicory, and bread crust.
Chocolate, creamed coffee, toffee, folowed by the woodsy/piney/spruce notes. Perhaps some cinnamon as well. Bitterness is medium and balances the sweetness of the malt well.
Delicious and complex as always. Spice and malt are very well balanced. — 4 days ago

This was the big surprise out of the Italians we pulled out of the cellar. Big and rich and plush with plenty of black fruit and a touch of vanilla with a long complex finish. Stunner! — 18 days ago

Brilliant wine. Had this 5 years ago and it tasted like a Zinfandel. Today it was all Nebbiolo. Woody notes at first then opened up to young, racy, red and blue fruit, power and elegance combination. Last bottle, should have waited 5 more years. — 9 hours ago
Crazy dark purple tinged color. Lovely in the glass. Smells Spanish. Hint of warm wood (cedar?) to go with the cherry-berry stuff. Maybe a hint of sage. Flavor is classic. Mountain wild berries. Bitter inky tannins. Freshness. Crisp. Very dry. Reminds me of Evodia a bit. Plenty of anise and licorice on the backside. It’s a lovely example of granacha’s expression in Spain.. — 22 days ago
Very crisp, dry, elegant with good minerality.

Something a bit different. Gift from a client. Santa Cruz Roussanne. Great stuff. Lovely nose with some wood but loads of minerality as well. Palate is very balanced and pure and really much leaner than I expected. It’s deep but also elegant and has a nice viscosity to it. Long finish. Very nice. — 11 hours ago
