I’m curious to see how long the people behind this wine club can continue to convince people this is how wine is “supposed to be.” Not good.

Hazy Pale ruby; medium intensity aromas of cranberry, underripe strawberries, underripe red raspberry, mustiness, intense yeastiness; dry, medium plus acid, low tannins, medium alcohol, light bodied; medium finish, flavors light, definitely a natural wine, good

Crunchy, vibrant Pinot. 12.55% ABV (woot!) Unfined, unfiltered. This is Brian’s style of wine, a style I’m happy to drink. But, my resident non-credentialed wine drinker said: “It looks like a Pinot, but it doesn’t taste like a Pinot....”
There’s some candied cherry fruit for sure, but grippy minerals and green veggies make this a different animal. Could easily be confused with cru Beaujolais.

My favorite of the #viticole offerings so far. Still an easy drinking style but complex with earthy and vegetal flavors complimenting the slightly underripe fruit. Makes me want to try all of whitcraft’s lineup.
