This wine is a marvel of complexity that unfold as the minutes tick by. At first an herbal salt n pepper bomb it unfolds little by little like a delicate origami crane (clearly I’ve been crafting) to show its angles. A soundly linear wine with a...not quite a kick...but a huzzah in the bitter greens direction. And a bedrock of cola. Cherry cola. My favorite part of Pinot noir is the cola-leaden earth. Macerated black cherries hold down the fort. For all this complexity it is a straight shooting wine: the pal with a crazy life story who can distill information into NPR-worthy sound bites. It’s a beautiful babe that I think will hold up for years. Looking forward to seeing the flowers and earth in, say, 2021. — 5 days ago
Red and black cherry, cranberry, pomegranate and violets. 100% organic farmed, each vineyard parcel has its own tank to ferment year after year. Lovely wine, will like to watch this peak in a few years. — 5 days ago
Scarlet and mahogany in the glass, much darker than previous gamays I've encountered. A full bouquet of earthy strawberries, plum and violet on the nose. Fruit forward and a nice acidity, red cherries fade into a smooth black currant finish.
Originally paired this with chicken pad thai and it was amazing. A glass on its own is still very drinkable but food really makes this shine. — 16 days ago
