Physically Distanced 🚧 but Socially Close 🤗 2020 Independence Day Party 🇺🇲 🥳 with several members of our Tastevin crew.🍷 Proof that our palates are wider than Burgundy, outside of sanctioned events.🍾
Notes may be light, scores will be honest. 💯🦄

This is ridiculous... I'm smiling so hard, my cheeks hurt. Decanted 5h.

Pretty copper ruby color. Smells like old rioja! But clarified. Cherry taffy and pink and purple flowers on the nose. Also, minerals. Palate is packed with intense flavor. It is oxidized, bright, full bodied, fruity and metallic. Finish is a true progression, like a sherry. This is so delicious! Electric

Such a unique wine that screams for food. Tastes more like a red than a rosé.

Sherried notes on the nose, very complex with burnt orange peel, black cherry, mineral. Better closer to room temp. 🦄🌈✨

I don’t get it. Bought three bottles of the 2010. Read the rave reviews. Threw out the first bottle as spoiled. Bad luck I thought. Opened the second a few weeks later. Drinkable but bad. Acidic and astringent. A 7.5 is generous. Buyer beware I guess. This one did not travel well

Unikt vin till både tillgänglighet och stil. Utvecklad rosé med tydlig fatprägel. Plommon och stora bär. Kalamata och gurkskal. Kryddig med bra syra och längd.
