Solid Crozes. Took some air to come around. Nose then shows crushed dark stone infused earth, sweet dark berry juice, spiced bison jerky. Mouthfilling and soft. Deep fruit at first, then goes to the more savory side. Fruit is sweet and a bit simple, and there’s a little lack of concentration. But it’s cheap, solid, and fun.

(My daughter’s dog Lena (short for Valtellina) photo-bombed the picture, even though she’s unrelated to this grape.) Feral nose has lots of iron, smoky earth, and funkified meat. Flavorful, medium-full, and relatively complex in the mouth. Mostly on the savory and earthy side, with lots of smoky gravel and only an undercurrent of fruit. Nice!

Fresh-no sugar- blueberry pie of a nose.

Well crafted, heavier bodied wine, unified berry blend, blue and black fruits working together in unison, a harmonic balance. Iodine and gravel carried this wine to the inevitable end - of high acid and new barrel like tannins.
Absolutely Lovely. A bit young, sometimes I cannot help myself.

Nose of iodine, cured meats, and dark fruits. Heavy in the kirsch flavors, lean tannins. Medium-plus body. Still a very well crafted wine. 2016 was good for this wine and I’ll enjoy seeing how it changes over the years as I pull bottles out of the cellar.

New school frame of mind.
The nose had me thrown from the first option.
Decent tannin, tight colour and slightly meaty.

Olives and protein and brambly red and black fruit. Prickly tannins. Exhibiting great typicity. Excited to see what he does with his own fruit.
