Bright ruby with low concentration but quite intense in flavors. Sanguine, red flowers, plum, fig, raisin, cassis, and violet. Elevated/high acidity, elevated yet smooth tannins, and almost full body. 12 months in 600L French oak. Great for a finicky grape such as Baboso. — 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. — a month ago
Green apples, bee pollen, yellow plums and tomatoes, hay, sweat, barnyard funk and gasoline. A deep and expansive flavor with a satisfyingly salty finish. Love this wine- it’s a trip. — 2 years 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. — 8 months ago
