Aromatic Bouquet of dried rose and violets, distinct native yeast like funk, bret perhaps? Lively acidity and soft velvety tannins. Persistent, unique, elegant, meditative. Almost like a cold climate Lacrima! Tell your friends, this wine is dope!

2011. Odd creature... Plums, cinnamon and floral notes flows into soft tannins, balanced acidity, moderate concentration and and abrupt finish. Pointless stuff.

Much better of what I expected. Dry fruit shows beautifully. I wine to linger over dessert and pastries.

2012: fruit forward with soft mid palate and low tannin. Was still a little intense for Japanese food, try with Chinese

Too much dried fruit, rassins etc. Over extrated and some notes of nail polish.

Crazy, cuckoo, beautiful aromatics. Lots of flowers. Palate: lean, reddish-pink fruit. Good acid. Love this wine.

I like this a lot, very fragrant with violets and fresh flowers, tea aromas, some lighter spices notes. The palate is edits bodied reminiscent of Loire Cabernet France in a lighter vintage.
