This was an interesting departure for the evening. Juxtaposed to the Morgado. This was old world with a big O. Mineral-driven, earthy nose. On the palate, it displayed smoke, along with volcanic soil notes. Pomegranate fruit displays tension, along with a high degree of acid. Comes across as firm and edgy. Squeaky clean finish. 100% old world - Elements Restaurant, NJ.

Funky, earthy barnyard with a just a hint of fruit. If you like this style, which I do, you will love this wine.

Kirsch, rhubarb, raspberry bitters, clove, fennel seed, ash. Snapping rounded acidity/minimal rough velvet tannins, medium bodied, juicy-silky texture, long-smoky peppery slightly bitter finish. Mineral driven, food friendly, not for those who seek fruit in a wine.

This takes a few minutes to come alive, so patience is rewarded. The nose shows deep earthy aromatics with a powerful herbal note. This opens up as a pretty straightforward medium bodied, balanced wine. A good mix of red fruit, spicy/earthy savoriness & noticeable acidity. The tannins seemed to "wake up" over dinner & this added a textural component which enhanced the detail & depth in the fruit. Ripe red berries emerged with that beautiful grip. This finished with a return to those savory notes & the wine seemed made for our chanterelle & leek risotto.
