Listan Prieto, aka Mission aka Criolla chica aka Pais. The Benje Tinto from Envinante sourced from the DO Ycoden Daute Isora on Tenerife. Opens up very reductive, so be patient with it. Tart red fruit, very savoury and salty, like licking a stone, peppery. Like a northern Rhône but in the lack of flesh. Now call me conservative, but this above my threshold. However, very playful and fun, complex as well with a decent lenght and playful. — 12 days ago

Extreme acidity but in a good way. Light bodied yet complex. Really special. — 16 days ago
ASTONISHING RED the embodies the best representation of this grape. Herbs, Apple and citrus with a Looooonggggg mineral / earthy finish that will transport you to the Atlantic OceAn... Sorry but I need to make a pause to enjoy the party of the senses .... There are good wines and also exceptional ones . This falls into the second group. If you ever run into one do not let the opportunity pass and indulge yourself ... Serve it ANY WAY you want it and will be good but around 11 Fahrenheit sounds about perfect. — 5 months ago

Volcano Essence. Indigenous variety from Canary Islands. Fruity, Peppery and mineral. Bold and complex. Honest and intriguing . Rare and singular... Medium weight with mid to high tannins and balanced acidity. This is a serious wine for serious drinkers. This is a trip into tradition and knowledge. Masterfully crafted in Abona. — 5 months ago

Place: Tenerife (Canary Island), Spain from Yconde-Daute-Isora appellation.
Vigneron: Envinate (Cuvee Viticole)
Grape: Listán Blanco; Vintage: 2017
Color: Deep gold to amber around the rim. Why is the color gold for a young wine? *** I don’t know, maybe skin contact, or oxidative wine making style? @brianmcclinticms @envinatewine
Nose: Not floral, not citrus, spices (cinnamon, fennel seeds)
Taste: Good structure, soft acidity throughout, sweet spice taste, interesting that it’s packing quite a bit of tannins for a white wine from mid-palate through long finish. — a year ago
