Very complex nose that reminds me of Walla Walla Syrah, even though this neither is from Walla Walla nor contains any Syrah. It’s most Mourvèdre, with some Grenache and Counoise. Oh yes, the nose. It shows sweet, smoky campfire embers, cracked river stones, and perfectly ripe red berry ooze. Round, deep, and low-toned on entry, it’s got a good initial whack of savory and dark fruit flavors. Then, however, it tails off pretty quickly into campfire char and alcoholic pepperiness. With a longer, friendlier finish, this would have been amazing. As it is, it’s pretty damn good. — 14 days ago
Very decent affordable Pinot. WOW 2-4-21. Needs airing but smiths out. — 15 days ago
Fruit basket let, overwrought unbalanced with a touch of VA upon opening, developed into an effusive fruit basket of an ideal cocktail wine, paired with boolgogi and it was fantastic — 23 days ago
Went well with the pasta pesto I made and my dad actually liked — 22 days ago
08’ Cliff Lede Poetry. These wines are among some of ￼the most inviting wines on the nose. Blackberry fruit, raspberry sorbet, allspice, cinnamon, etc...
Palate - Blackberry, plum, Cassis, slight herbal notes. The fruit pushes more towards the front. It’s truly a beauty that’s come to full maturity now. Drink them up. — 5 days ago
Lovely green pear & apricots, bright grapefruit acidity — 5 days ago
I feel like I’m standing cliff side overlooking the Atlantic. I can almost feel the mist spritzing my face. Brine and minerals up front. Secondary aromas of stone fruits and sweet-smelling flowers (or is it melon?). Flavors of flint and lemon peel complimented with a beautiful, long acidity.
