I like it oodles. I also am on the fence as to whether I wanna have a girl date coffee meetup monthly with it cause it feels like a girlfriend wine. Which isn’t to say it’s tasty and I would never regret our honeyed slightly nuances with very squashed pear backdrop. Haven’t gotten to know the rest of Roark’s wine but should do that

Med+ acid, definitely feeling the roundness of the lees, not much fruit character, good example of natural wine!

A Loire valley inspired California Chenin Blanc. Spruce and even Pine-Sol like nose with a slightly oily texture. Sounds strange, but I thought it delicious with my lemon caper catfish.

12.1 ABV... Classic dried pear, honeydew, and distant chalky flavors meets flowers in the attic. Loved drinking this over the course of three days.
