Broc Cellars

Petillant Wine Mendocino Valdiguié 2018

Broc is the gateway drug to natural wine. He makes very good stuff, but not necessarily innovative or boundary pushing. And for me, his star horse is and always has been Chenin. So it goes with the 2018 Valdiguie Pet Nat. It’s good but not excellent. Fine for fun. Bright pink and candied red fruit, grapefruit, bitter citrus. Jovial and celebratory. — 5 months ago

Clos du Tue-Boeuf

Loire Valley Pineau d'Aunis 2018

Pineau d’Aunis is cultish now, finding its way into any situation that has previously worked for Gamay, Valdiguie, Grolleau, or Pinot Noir. Glowing shade of cranberry and a little bit murky with gorgeous aromatics. Perfumed Palo Santo incensed with dark red cherries, spruce, pine, menthol, and cinnamon. The texture has a little weight, plenty of minerals, and pyrazine from some stem inclusion.

And I love the end - pine and iodine and red candied cherry.

Fresh and light, just 11%. Love Broc’s hands off style. Mostly Valdiguie, with some zin and trousseau this vintage. Nice zip and texture to it. — 3 months ago

Monkey Jacket North Coast Red Blend 2017

Fresh berries, pomegranate, black currants, with hint of cacao and chalkiness on the finish. Light and easy to drink with mild tannins. Valdiguie shines through. — 7 months ago

Evangel Carignan

The Valdiguie was kind of meh, got better with air but the Carignan... this is a wild f’in wine. I honestly don’t know what’s happening in my mouth but it’s some combination of red fruit and salted meat. Kind of stopped me in my tracks as I said “wtf is this” — 2 years ago

Rancho Chimiles Vineyard Sparkling Valdiguié 2018

My second vineyard of Cruse sparkling Valdiguie and it’s good but it’s definitely the less interesting of the two. Where Deming was a pretty hazy white strawberry, Rancho Chimiles is more upfront - visuals and flavors of bright Jolly Rancher watermelon and pink strawberry starburst. A little overpriced at $35.

You will likely have no luck getting Ultramarine in TX. Mostly via allocation only and the secondary market is quite extreme...bottles often above $200 (release is $75). Wait list is lengthy. They are wonderful wines, so hopefully you luck out!

@Shay A yep I figured. I probably wouldn’t pay $75 if I found it anyhow. But I’m super curious to try

Surprising and refreshing Cali red. First taste of Valdiguie. Color like Gamay. Nose palate finish all lively and fresh and excellent with food. Good Acker buy. — a year ago
