Quite intriguing, not a style of winemaking I reach for often, but an example of it done well. Minimal extraction and no SO2 with the allure and charm this has can be quite difficult. It’s a little skanky upon first opening, but after a night in the bottle it cleaned up considerably, the brett and VA melted into the wine a little more and its muddled melange of red fruit and earth became apparent. Crushed rainer cherry, decaying strawberries, rhubarb compote, white pepper, sweaty brett. I like blurring the lines between light red and rosé, and the wine worked well with roast chicken w/ spices and poblano mashers night one and fared well with tomato/avocado salad and grilled sardines the next night. That versatility at the table was impressive.

This was underwhelming at first. Felt under-extracted and shy. After about 1-2 hrs in the bottle just breathing, really opened up. Beautiful wine. Lots of roses, spice, and soft red fruits on the nose. On the palate, more roses, red fruits more pronounced, really bright fruits like strawberry and raspberry, a slight savoriness, and this river rock minerality. Excited to see how the other few develop.

A wine-drinkers wine. Much lighter than expected, nearly dark rosé.
