Somehow both complex and simple at the same time. A touch of funk but well balanced by fruit and chalky earth. Paired easily with just about everything on the table. (Pastificio San Lorenzo)

Clear, lifted red and blue fruit. Tart leads to velvet. Precise earth. Touch of smoke. Rigid progression. This would be fun to watch develop.

Green tobacco, raspberry jam, jalapeños, and a hint of leathery spice. Very approachable Chinon from 40 year old vines.

Den gröna paprikans himmelrike. Finstämt och vackert. Önskar bara att jag hade orkat hålla mig 10 år till...

Deep, earthy Cabernet franc with a lush nose, a few tannins cutting through whiffs of smoke. Reminds me of a wild forest.
