On the nose; a bit of funky sourness, blackberries, dark cherries, blueberries, plum, berry licorice cola, dark turned earth, fresh dark florals with old violets.

The body is medium and has fine dry tannins. Blackberries, dark cherries, blueberries, plum, strawberries, berry licorice cola, dark turned earth, fresh dark florals with old violets. Beautiful acidy with fresh ripe, polished finished.

Photos of, their Estate at sunset, sitting area on the property, fruit awaiting harvest from their Refosco Vineyard and another one of their Napa vineyards.

Unique. Light but so full of life and uniqueness. You can taste the love and simplicity.

Big yet clean fruit. Dusty grip. Mint. Tomato leaf. Uplifting acid. Great steak wine.

Refosco grape originally from Friuli Italy. Now in Napa. Big fruit, tannins galore, long dry finish. Needs food!

White pepper, cardamom, spicy red licorice, medium body, just enough structure, so relieved that 2011 turned out, looking like favorite vintage so far--lets hear it for "off vintages"

Interesting ... Pretty on the nose, sweet, woodsy with a touch of spearmint. Loses depth on the palate but reminiscent of some indigenous northern Italians (Lacryma) or Cru Beaujolais.

A night of @Steve Matthiasson in Boulder. Our last bottle of refosco this year. Savory and loving some steak tacos.
