Black cherry, menthol, hint of cinnamon sweetness. Dusty. Medium body and acidity. Complexity you’ll think about.

Lots of red fruit and more acid than Sicilian Nero’s. Not as Barnyard as Broc or COS, but equally as interesting but in a different way. Very tasty.

Raspberry and acid. Such a different wine by itself, and with food it was absolutely singing. Love that Mendo fruit!

Another grape variety presented in balance by Martha Stoumen. Mendocino county continues to be a very exciting slice of CA winemaking.

Loved this but it hasn’t yet fully come together so socking away two bottles for a couple years.
