This is how you do orange wine. Not oxidative or bitter, it’s vibrant and refreshing, with the maceration contributing structure and dimension instead of weighing it down and obscuring the terroir/varietal characteristics. Lots of dried citrus peel, nectarine, herbs and spice with a touch of yeast. One of the only examples of the genre that kept me reaching for another glass. — 3 months ago
This label could keep @Sam Shepard warm through an interminable quarantine, boy howdy. Much thanks to #naturalwine warlord @Brendan Devine for hooking up a nice bottle from his friends at Heights Grocer.
Decanted one hour. Started slow but opened up beautifully. Tart plums and black pepper. Wanted a little more body but again I guess they left that on the label (zing!?). — 4 months ago

This is a Rosé made of cab franc. There is a fizzy, “Zots” note to it, followed by lots of raspberry and strawberry notes, and garden herbs. A little wildness to it, but very enjoyable. Savory, lively and all fun. Anyone who enjoys the Rosado by Lopez de Heredia, should appreciate this. — 5 months ago
Tangy dark fruit in the nose and palate. Light-to-medium bodies with hints of Kool Aid and High-C (though not as sweet). Also, musk , minerals and spice on the palate. Simple and refreshing and very different from what I normally drink. — 5 months ago
