Keratsuda Orange 2020

Here’s a fun one to try, the native Katsuda grape from Bulgaria. Not a lot of oranges out there so I’m always up for trying one when I come across them. Fascinating bouquet of tangerine pith and grapefruit rind, honeysuckle and orange blossom, walnuts, turpentine, and cold steel. On the palate fresh orange and pineapple slices, ripe peaches and grapes, with notes of bitter greens, ginger, and well integrated woodiness, and a pungent heat of white and cayenne pepper on the finish. Fresh juicy mouthfeel with a fairly short finish (which is great as I’ve been in a mood for light summer sippers lately) except for the spice heat which lingers a good while. Would probably go fantastic with salads or light starches like pilaf or farro. — a month ago

Danube Plain Pinot Noir

Refined #pinotnoir from #danubeplain Bulgaria - tart cherry, sous bois and faint rose petals on nose; medium bodied, soft cherry notes and tantalizing acidity. Great QPR for ~$10 at Costco. — a day ago

Rough Day

Thracian Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

Enjoyable and quite different from California cab. Somewhat dry and tight but does open up. A nice change from a country we don’t see too many wines from. — 2 months ago
