Bravo Etude, Bravo!
Outstanding execution here, textbook CA PN w/out being overdone or over extracted: just a gorgeous nose of beautifully ripe cherry, strawberry & red plum, generous warm baking spices, smoky tea, vanilla and more. Intoxicating nose mirrored on palate. Med bodied but so generous it drinks bigger. Smooth suave, freshness abounds, seamless through finish. Only minor point is length of finish gives this away as entry level, but for the price: buy a case. — 9 days ago
This is an amazing Roussanne/Viognier blend from Sanguis called Three Sketches of a Dream. 2014, released earlier this year. Highly recommend and indistinguishable from SQN. This has serious depth of flavor and acidity to keep it all together. The finish is long and enjoyable with honey and some citrus notes and maybe cantelope? Gorgeous wine. Serve at cellar temp and let her go. Hats off to Mattias and Elliot on another superb creation. — 11 days ago
Went to the wine ghetto in Santa Barbara. Most wineries there are ‘junk’ but the municipal winery winemakers make some great wines - and super fun stuff like this 6.5% ‘wine’. Funk in the trunk. Essentially the best Kombucha I ever had. The Riesling gave it a floral touch. And what about the seawater and Kelp. See next picture which describes the way this was made. — 19 days ago
