Peach skin, mineral, bit of earth/funk, fine bead. A step up over the ‘16. 😍😋⚡️

@Eric Wareheim continues to bring joy to our table. This is a seriously well made wine. Delivers on every level without forfeiting any of the pet nat yum factor. Last bottle of ‘16 😕

Really fun wine. Wasn’t expecting the quality here, but this is seriously yummy. Fine bubbles, loads of fruit, and a springy but subdued structure. It goes fast.

This one checks every box for me, and once I read the winemaking tech specs I realized why. These guys really put in the work to avoid just being a fun but forgettable pet-nat...Of course, at $42 it better be a more serious presentation, but I’m diving back in asap. Copper / Salmon coloring in the glass; focused carbonation; Old vine Carignan completely shines as a skin contact sparkler - great fruit throughout, but never overtly sweet. Finally, the Jen Stark bottle design, and the fact that @Eric Wareheim is behind this wine just makes me happy.
