A lovely biodynamic BDX that is maybe a bit simple for the price ($40 or so?) but does offer an elegant and food-friendly package without being weighed down by oak and tannin. Nice fresh dark fruits and florals with gentle menthol, tobacco, rich potting soil and cedar. It is light and ethereal in the mouth. Tannins are actually fully resolved for me at this point, and it’s not super acid-driven, so I’m not sure I see this progressing much for my palate. This would be a repeat buy for me at $20-25 but at this price I’m hoping for something a bit more special. Need to seek out more naturally-made BDX! Recommendations?

Inky dense cassis flavors that just continue on but it’s not ready to show more layers. The graphite suggests it, and so does the natural wine press, but it’s still unidimensional another year on.

Too young by a long while. Maybe 3-5yr

This wine has a deep ruby hue.

First impression involved caramel, vanilla, anise, black licorice, plum, black currant on the nose/palate; as it opened, nutmeg, cardamom, earth, cured meat, leather, espresso, and chocolate came forward.

Lovely Bordeaux blend (Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Petit Verdot, Cabernet Franc) with great balance and nice complexity.

Was in the mood for Bordeaux this eve. It didn’t clash with the meal (spinach / aged cheeses, ravioli, flat leaf parsley, scallions, roasted aubergine) but didn’t much enhance the experience either. It was still very much enjoyable. No regrets.
