9.1

I gave it a 91 as a complement. Most wines above 93 are spoofalated big dick wines. This is delicious in the way that you don't want too much around because it will disappear too quickly. Pure enjoyment! My kind of wine.

Young and chewy at the moment. One hour of air shows violets on the nose with black and bing cherry, granite, sea salt and a pop of grenadine in the mouth.

Rose hips, bright cherries, awesome tannins, and just the right amount of acidity!

Day 1: crushed lavender, rose petal perfume. Nice depth lots of tannins and acidity. Like volnay with more tannins. But now… Day 2: Soft roses, hints of leather/Animal wildness. Cherries with pits, earth, still lots of acidity.

Tannic and acidic, needs food but when paired right it’s better

Sour cherries, some earthiness, medium acidity and medium body. This wine went well with a lasagna. Bought at Riverdale Vintner. $21.

Weightier with chewy tannins, not as pop and pour as previous vintages. I suspect that this will get better with some age. Still pretty cherry, floral, and chocolate notes with some volcanic funk mixed in. πŸŒ‹πŸŒ‹πŸŒ‹

A fun and straight up kind of wine. Approachable and full of fruit.

At first whiff it smells Like church... the volcanic energy opens dark pomegranate corridors...the acid and tannic interplay is joyous...a wine to be celebrated
