We are batting .500 so far in purchases from our local organic wine shop. This one is fortunately a real treat. Imagine a tannin-rich Burgundy (if one existed) blended with a Cru Beaujolais. Floral, ripe strawberry, orange peel... bright acid, chewy tannins, but something that would appeal to those who like a semi-dry wine (just from smell, this doesn’t have any residual sugar). Hard to think of something this would not pair with.... we served it with a beef stir-fry, but it could handle everything from BBQ to salmon. Served chilled. This Vajra release reminds me of their high QPR Rosso that is readily available. Cannot wait to try those two together. This will absolutely be on our Thanksgiving table.

Bright cherry fruit with very zippy acidity/fizzy palate. Extremely cool wine that you should search out.

Light Nebbiolo with ferocious red cherry acidity. Great pizza wine that overdelivers. A must chill

What a delightful surprise. Picked this up after work on a hot July day. Put a slight chill on it, and went back the next day for a few more bottles. Light, fruity, and that little bit of fizz. Highly recommend to anyone who enjoys a no-oak red that's drinkable on its own or with a nice arugala salad and roast chicken.

Julian Lynch with a record that gets in your brain and won’t give it back. Accessible, but nuanced and one that demands you revisit. Often immediately. Same phenomena with this light, fruity take on Nebbiolo from Vajra. Summer things.

Cranberry on the front with tart cherry and slight smoky notes. Crisp acidity and precision. Beautiful ruby red. Simple. But satisfying.

Had a fair amount of Nebbiolo, but none like this. Acid hides the high ABV and tannins are inconspicuous. Drank it slightly chilled. A great summer red.
