Classic sea smoke style. Well balanced acidity and fruit. It just tastes like a sea smoke reminds me of the 2006.

Fruity rose with notes of ripe pear. Not a typical rose for me but it was well liked by all

Drinking really well now. I love this wine. Totally unexpected great structure and balance. The fruit comes through the Tannins in a very nice balance. Can’t put my finger on the exact flavor profile. $38

Really tastes of dark cherry. Would pair nicely with duck breast and cherry reduction. Opened up after about 30 minutes. Definitely not burgundy

Light colored straw. Tropical notes with a white peach viscosity. Also very distinct minerality in finish. Really nice.

Super pale and almost a rose gold color. Elegant balance and weight with good minerality flowing through the finish. This is a nice upgrade from the basic and on par but different from Bandol.

Deep blackberry hits me right away followed by some dry mineral notes. Mouth coating. Paired with lamb chops a perfect match

Very clean elegant. Has a light texture that matches well with some richness on the palate. One of my favorite Lioco wines.

Agree with previous tasting note. This is drinking well now. The warm spices on the palate are nicely paired with the soft acidity. A warm soft texture coats the mouth Pair with a warm spice braise and it is perfect.

An elegant wine. Fine grained tannin. Well balanced and not heavy. A wild herbaceous aroma. Blackberry is primary on the palate. Deep dark Has time on its side. Drink over next ten years???

Past it’s prime. Drink now. Apple cider character. Lacks the vibrancy of later vintages. Drinkable with richer food. Roast chicken still works

Drinking really well. Still has years to go. The acidity is so balanced with the fruit. This results in bright fruit character blueberries come to mind. There is also a herbaceous note somewhere between fennel and licorice. Definitely pair this with food.

Rhône Syrah aroma with a little barnyard funk. Mouth coating creamy texture. Tannins are mostly resolved and not pronounced. I can easily this beats most all cote du Rhône’s I have had recently for the same price. Good value for the price. Will drink til 2025

In a great place now. Tropical notes on the palate to start moving into a long characteristic mineral finish. Best Chablis I have had in quite some time.

Weird balance
The acid is too high and over rides the fruit. Almost astringent.

Tasty golden delicious apple notes straight out of the orchard off set by some herbaceous lavender and rosemary. Long finish. Mouth coating. Really good for an old chard.

Agree with previous notes citing orange marmalade and ginger. It could benefit from a bit more acidity but it is very good otherwise. Glad I bought a case and still have time to get through the last half.

This has everything I look for in a southern French rose. I prefer roses on the watermelon side of the spectrum rather than the strawberry side. This wine has a good minerality streak that lends some salinity. Just makes my mouth water for more. Buy it by the case if you can find it.

Tastes like a Lioco. 12.5% is fantastic given the depth this wine shows.

Not a lot of nuance. More feminine than the bigger Cabernets from this estate. I don’t think it will get much better. Leave some time for this to open up.

Fantastic wine. Light texture with fully ripe, dark blackberry notes. Good contrast pairing with dishes on the richer side. I could drink this on its own. At 12.5% it delivers all around.

Really great rose. Mineral depth and finish are spot on for my target rose. North Berkeley Imports 60 bucks.

2019 Spring tasting. A blend of different sites. You would be better off buying a ten year old bordeaux for $65 than drinking this wine. Group assessment was the same.
