A super light and fresh blend of grenache, carignan, and alicante bouschet. A natural wine so the slightly funky forest floor notes definitely come through in the aromas and taste. Some minerals and cherries on the nose and definitely tart cherries on the palate followed by a chalky lingering mouthfeel. Pushing the border of my limit for natty funk, but should pair wonderfully with pasta! #gotm2020

A vivid ruby red with light cherry flecks in the glass. This is certainly a wine for those who like a little bit of funk in their lives. Tons of moist dirt and forest scents initially on the nose. Wonderfully pure fruit is a highlight. Fresh red cherries, cranberry sauce, and wild strawberries. This is indeed a fun, quaffable blend but it is a serious, well made wine. Easy drinking but also with a genuine spine.

Alicante Nero (Grenache), Mourvèdre, and Carignane are the primary components but it’s not fair to lump it in with so many other kitchen sink blends. Medium acidity and terrific balance. Those red fruits shine on the palate with more cranberries and cherries. Smoke, pepper, and oak play a part. Herbs and menthol radiate on the medium long finish that keeps pulling you back in. Perfect for summer but really it’s perfect for anytime.

Berry scent, very light, slightly acidic but great taste. I really liked this and it was perfect with pizza!

Solid table wine, a bit of an acid bite at the end that isn’t the best but very drinkable and the liter is nice.

A little thin and Brett-y. The funk seemed to blow off after it was open for a while, but it’s still not a fave.
