Plummy purple, cloudy. Peppery, stemmy, earthy, some tart red and blue fruit left, black currant, blood orange. Has entered a period of charming, gentle senescence

Absolutely stunning old lady, still so bright and citrusy, super sweet umami-rich cranberries, leafy and stalky aromas, in a soy-mushroom background. Palate is lean but with plenty of mid, fully resolved, lacey texture roped in sous bois and orange peel, with a long, bushy finale. A total giveaway for $50!!

A beauty from one of my favorite Loire producers (w/Bourgeuil dirt still on the bottle): the Pinot side of Cab Franc

Initial nose was salty savoury like soy sauce, developing into dried fig and raspberry. Palate was so intense, with notes of porcini mushroom, dried fig and cherry with integrated with balanced acidity and jovial for its age.
