Outstanding. Evolved in glass for hours. Great spine of acidity but broad and deep across the palate. Biscuit, yeast, subtle nuttiness. Finish forever. Very complex.

Dense and dark. Earthy and leafy. Dried flowers. Beautiful nose. Secondary notes emerging. Full rich palate. Dark fruits balance the animal funk. Integrated tannins. Really showing well!

Red
Definitely the best Ribeira Sacra I've had. Great fruit, nice tension. Pinot weight with slightly firmer tannins. Very good.
Red
Took a day open but it really showed up.
Ruby, bright.
Gorgeous, vibrant red red nose. Very lively. Cream, cranberry, cherry, cola. Super mineral core, some earthy notes. Cinnamon red hot candies.
Palate is pure energy, light and alive. Sour cherry, great acidity, long. Really well balanced. Will age but so hard not to crush now.
Very pure.
Red
Bright ruby, slight clarity at the rim.
Red fruit, tea, cola.Touch of earth, veg. Feels like a little oak is coming through, not overdone. Getting a little heat on the nose.
Balanced palate. Good tension. Gentle grip tugs on the long finish.
Big and juicy, a little rugged. Nice fruit, dark notes on the finish. Tannins are vert fine. Will go a few years but certainly giving it up now.

Bright, clear, golden.
Peach, pear, tangerine, mineral on the nose.
Big time apple and lemon curd on the palate. Rich, full mid palate. Long finish.
Good acid.

A little further on and showing very interesting fresh herb notes.
Growing aromatically and adding flesh on the palate.
Subtle wine.

I know, I know. 100 points? I don't give a shit about points I just love this wine. Garnet and thinning at the edges. Not star bright but probably because they dont sterilize it. Explodes out of the glass. Cherry, cranberry, black licorice, candy, Sprees, sour patch. Intense but lithe on the palate. Berries and tea and herbs. Loooong. Complex. Integrated. Perfect.

Very bright, ruby/purple.

Not super aromatic. More savory nose.
One hour update: faaaaar more aromatic. Blackberries, chocolate, mineral.

Good acid, soft tannins. Tea, cranberry, strawberry. Also a little dark fruit note. Touch of earth. Light, delicate. Medium length, tart pleasant finish.

Very lovely. I adore this.
Keeps getting better.
Stone cold winner.

Very tasty, good acid and mineral profile. Nice white and stone fruit.

Bright red fruit, silky tannins, lively acidity. Raspberry coulee, mineral. Really good. Highly aromatic.

I'm not supposed to like this but it's pretty damn delicious. Giving you everything she's got! Dark, lush, modern, concentrated.
Red
Ridiculously good, esp at the price point. Very dense and concentrated for a Beauj. Very dark. Red berries and a hint of tea. Lovely!
White
Quite good. New World style, for sure. Maybe needs time? Prefer it over Bien Nacido vineyard.

Medium garnet, touch of bricking at the rim. Explosive red -fruited nose. Candy-like nose. Touch of earth, a little black licorice. Cinnamon. Palate is silky smooth w/ fully resolved tannins. Cranberry cocktail. Good acid. Fairly savory and dry. Gentle bitter tug on the finish. All in balance. Good length. Absolutely delicious but also ready to drink.

Side by side with Fenocchio's Villero and B. Mascarello. Incredibly light color. Cherry juice, red fruit, floral. Luden cherry cough drops. Super aromatic. Savory, tea, burnt toast, black licorice. Fruit on the palate came up a lot over time. Super delicious.

Gorgeous, definite buy. Light and elegant, showing well. Light, dusty tannins that tug, not rip. Cherry fruit, flowers, black tea, pleasantly bitter finish. Love it.

Very enjoyable. Good fruit, black tea notes, well structured but drinking well, too.

Very good but surprisingly big and oaky. Very new world. Prefer the basic chard. If I want full smash new world chard I'd probably go Art Series or Kistler or Konsgaard.

Bright red fruit, lively on the palate. Crackles. Good structure supports fresh fruit and tea notes. Still youthful.

Second time in 8 years having this wine at Bern's. Just as amazing this time 'round. Silky smooth, perfectly integrated. Most amazingly, it revealed primary, secondary and tertiary flavor and scents at once. The finish was minutes long.

Tart cherry, raspberry zip. Cloudy. Rhubarb. I liked it. Fun and funky.

Slightly cloudy raspberry sorbet color. Very pretty.
Red fruit, herbal notes. Floral. Touch of mint or anise.
Silky tannins, zippy acidity. Great balance. Really lively.
Long finish, more red fruit. Cherry cough drop.
Love this. 1er Cru level. Only affordable and ready to drink.
Will improve and last.

Opened up well. Developed but not failing. Red fruit, fading. Integrated but still a tug of tannin. Earthy notes. elegant.
Red
Solid. A little hot, a little clunky. Not pretty. Nice fruit, good structure. Black licorice, raspberry. No problems. Just not my scene. Suprisingly tannic.
White
Began earthy and mineral. A touch of oil on the nose. Fresh citrus notes but more on the herbal, spicy side of things. Very pretty. Palate is super concentrated. Long. Broader and less defined on the palate than expected. But super delicious. Winner.
Red
Incredibly young and tight, opened it waaaay to early, esp from mag. That said, I drank it over the course of five days and it gave a glimpse of its future self. Very pretty, lithe. Great structure, acid. Somewhat graphite, mineral, and pine. Fresh. Fruit was buried but it was red. It will be an absolute stunner. Open next in 2027.

Insanely perfumed. The minute I pulled the cork the scent filled the room. First glass was amazing. Hard to drink much more than that.
