2019 huge tannin, definitely georgian inspired but w marsanne of all things! Big tannins with a warm, sunny depth. Grippy savory sour notes but free of any neggie hairspray smells/flavors of some younger Georgian heavy skin contact cuvees. Really cool and well executed quervi wine in CA! Love it! Had “Mother Knows” once before maybe 2018, and recall it as a more oxidized jura/sherry adjacent take on marsanne... Regardless the style I appreciate the lithe, clean, dryness Caleb achieves on some big, wild, engaging flavors.

Tastes more like cider than wine.

Big tannin-y orange. A dominant feature of this wine without being too intense.

Delicious! Great tannins & pleasantly dry. Nice citrus & slightly sour notes ... grapefruit, apple, and something else I can’t quite name. Really great macerated wine - exactly what I like in skin contact wines!
