ES Faiello

Took a chance on this unusual red from Loire: unique varietal composition & bottle format, but delicious nonetheless! Fairly dark inky richly extracted w/concentrated aromas of red fruit literally up & down the spectrum: tart cherry, cranberry, ripe bing cherry (and sour cherry), some raspberry couli all mingled with white pepper, clay & subtle vein of minerality. I found it very complex & engaging if a bit disjointed when looking at interplay of acidity & tannins...
