Deep and beautiful garnet color. Sticky and density.
First scent: raspberry, gooseberry, mulberry, and other wild berries.
Second note: ink, pencils, iron, flint and match.
Mid aroma: red lily, aromatic flowers, violet cabbage, boiled eggs, bacon, pickles, and herbs.

Attack: less sweetness, vibrant acid.
Mid palate: rich fruitiness and good tannin.
Finish: long and good acid with cleanliness.

Criminally inexpensive for this well made 'natural' wine. Bulletproof, dense, bright, fruit, soil, and a freshness w/o carbo, I'm still stunned at the price. Bravo!!

really light, not a lot of depth, but totally fine for casual guzzling or with food.

Delicious, almost vanishing. Highly Drinkable. I'm tasting.... Grapes? Smooth ramp in but just the hint of grip on the finish. Purchased from black label

Bright, fresh, Beaujolais-esque with some grip. No sulfur, perfect.
