This is not the rosé! Hopefully that gets corrected shortly. How much love I have for red bubbles. My goth heart jetés. This is all dried herb drawer and dried jam jar. Like seriously the scent of an empty black currant jam jar. There is a hint of sour dairy beguiling me behind. Labeled as demi sec but feels quite dry to me. The tannins have a friendly grip like the soft side of a Velcro enclosure. — 10 days ago
Stunning. Such a delicate bouquet of violet petals and graphite, spring flowers, earth, and tart cherries. Silky and elegant on the palate, where flavors of dusty minerals and just ripe black cherries mingle with the gentle tannins. These are some of my favorite aged wines- both sensual and cerebral at the same time. The 2005 is close to perfection at 14 years. — 2 days ago
Nose of dried violet, fire roasted green bell pepper, earth, cherry, iron.
Raspberry, cherry, cranberry, and earth. Still great acidity with dusty, slightly astringent tannin. Love that lingering cranberry bitterness on the finish.
Wonderful stuff with all the classic Loire cab franc notes you know and love. Still a lot of structure there 10 years out. Could go longer to soften out and evolve. — 12 days ago
