Kind of expressive, kind of muted, maybe a touch flawed. Cork showed light seepage, I think it happened while in my cellar on its side. Cork smelled a touch vinegar’y’. Still drinkable

This is the Saint Kerrigan... sans soufre. A very unusual wine. It has some of the savory blood and iron notes of a northern Rhone Syrah, but the body--light, bright, acidic--of a gamay. Less than 13% abv.

Cherry BLAST in the best possible way. This is absolutely gorgeous. Juicy, light, balanced, AMAZING with cheese and fresh tomatoes

Tart. Crisp. High tannins. Lovely color. Thin body. Fills mouth with flavor. Great for type of grape. But best decantered.

Forlorn hope for the win on Halloween. Served with pan roasted triggerfish & mushroom cous cous. Very floral on the nose and then tasting of blackberries and dark earth!

Looks can be deceiving...surprisingly light when I expected a heavy mouth feel and full body. Penetrating flavors of crushing fruityness and a soft, round backbone of raw and wild produce.
