Now I get why Cotes Du Jura Trousseau is trendy. Like a Cru Beaujolais, or a great Village Burg for a lot cheaper. Rasp/cran, stems, a little carbonic. Beautiful rose petal on the nose. Even a little vineyard dust and funkiness. Ripe fruit but not sweet at all. Killer for $13 at Costco. — 4 years ago
Earth is a tricky mother. Air carries all manner of agents of fermentation. Time is simultaneously a friend and foe. These are the fine lines danced around with this wine. Bright cherry and soft white pepper are counter-balanced by heady yeast and a bit of secondary fermentation. As much a wine of place as it is, for better or worse, of non-interventionist intent. Principles often have caveats. Personally, I enjoy it for its success as well as its “faults”, though I can understand how others may not agree. #noninterventionist #earthdowhatshedo #nativeyeasts #trousseau #californiawine #sanbenito — 2 years ago
This smells and tastes like aged #bourgogne level red #burgundy The color was orangish-pink. The nose was low intensity and the palate was missing fruit and dominated by vegetation like rhubarb. The tannins were quite drying and the finish was short. Definitely a peculiar wine. #arnotroberts #trousseau #northcoast #california #ctbucklinwine — 4 years ago
