Envinate

Lousas Viñas de Aldea Mencía 2017

Well well well, isn’t that something! Envinate Lousas Vinos de Aldea. Give it some time in the glass to unwind and expose its inner complexity, a vibrant red fruit profile, lavender and capsicum is accompanied by a pronounced savoriness with crushed rocks, soil and white pepper. A fresh spine runs through the palate with solid but fine grained grip from the tannins. Ribeira Sacra. Mostly Mencia with some other stuff thrown in (field blend), whole cluster ferment in cement tank followed by elevage in neutral barrel. A privilege to have these unicorn wines available! — 2 years ago

Reynard Cornas Syrah

Very reticent nose. Majestic tannins. Layer upon layer of fruit, spice, meat, minerals. Dense and demanding. Pure and profound. A unicorn that deserves its wings. — 3 years ago

Domaine Loubejac

Willamette Chardonnay 2018

Pale straw gold. Shy nose of quince and orange blossom. Palate is bright (medium plus acidity) yet medium bodied and yields quince, citrus, and bright straw. Finish is medium long and with just enough bitter to make you want more. A “unicorn” in that it’s about as close to true Burgundian style as I’ve had from the New World. I’d put this against a good Macôn-Village any day. Delicious with food (natch) and as a crisp summer sipper. Upscale your KFC like I did. — 3 years ago

Still strong on the second night! I could probably break the bottle and the wine would stand on its own for a few seconds

Pre-Phylloxera Barbera d'Alba 2017

Bit of a unicorn 🦄. Pre-Phylloxera vines from 1902! The nose is like smelling a bowl of fresh raspberries. Ridiculously dense and chewy on the palate with black raspberries and raspberry coulis giving way to cracked granite, limestone, dry earth and savory herbs. Nice grip. This needed about an hour decant to really show. — 3 years ago

Muschelkalk Pinot Noir 2018

The 18 is DRC quality a unicorn there is no other Pinot like it right now. It takes hour/days to reveal its layers and power. @40 min: Tannins soft and super well managed no rough edges here a hint of mint, faint touch of black tea bitters, herbaceous @ 15h: More round no oxidative disturbances.
Dark cherry, tart and closed. Finally @7days under Argon: Black Forest meadow, tannins resolved, glorious fruit, long. Dark black heirloom black forest cherries. The 18 E & M Muschelkalk beats out at Pinot I had in the last years . “I wish you where here”.

Briccorosa Rouchet Monferrato Rosso Ruche 2014

A bright, fun + festive wine from one of Piemonte’s unicorn varieties, made in an unexpectedly elegant style. Smells like cinnamon + berries. Tastes like Nebbiolo on spring break. Drinks like silk. — 3 years ago
