Lots of sediment, probably should have decanted. Not as thought provoking as some of their wines can be, but fun and easy drinking. Doesn’t seem like the couple years I held this have done it any favors.

This stuff is just tasty. Bringing the funk, dank, floral, lively, juicy and all around delicious fruits. All natural winemaking, by 2 couples that wanted to make wine that they wanted to drink. Another “anti-California” Californian wine.

This wine has all the things. Flavors. Textures. But importantly, it has all the acidity too. And then *poof* it's gone.

[If the extra year in the cellar chilled out some of the exuberant stone fruit, it also gave the spicy, herbal side a little more room to breathe. I'll take that trade-off.]

Fun cheese pairing wine that gets better with air and as it warms up.

Get in line! These guys are killing it. Blend of a bunch of grapes but this is knocking it out of the park with complexity, verve, tension.

So funky and so great. Don't let the murky look detract you, it's supposed to be that way. Unfined, unfiltered and fermented with native yeast. Drinks like stone fruit, explodes with apricot and some white peach, white pepper, tea leaves and lots of kiwi fruit as a kicker. Extremely interesting and would highly suggest.

Wonderfully paired with my roasted chicken Provençal and my palate. Pears, apple, honey, Meyer lemon, and a touch of celery seed. I would just stick my nose in the glass , but I’m happier drinking it. Get some before they sell out!

All the grapes bring all the things. Waxy honeyed palate weight. Tropical fruit. Brisk acidity. Herbal complexity. Leesy richness. Killed it with a nicoise salad.
