    April 10, 2012 - great garnet red color, raspberry cookie, violets and orange zest aromas, bright and tangy, serious presence in the mouth, flirtatious cranberry and cherry flavors with vibrant mineral on the finish, wonderful with food, speaks of place

  • Personal Opinion wrote:

    April 1, 2012 - Strawberry, raspberry, nutty funkiness and spice, with tons of stony minerality... high acidity, and chalky, gripping tannins... a very seriously structured nouveau, with tons of character... which makes this is more of a village level+ Beaujolais, then simply a simple "Nouveau"... all things considered, this is rather serious stuff... which seems to takes on weight and depth the longer it is exposed to air... after 5 hours, the fruit had darkened and the had structure intensified... best enjoyed with food.

    February 22, 2012 - Smells and tastes like wine country during crush season!

    February 15, 2012 - This bottle had a lot of funk--probably something wrong with it.

    January 31, 2012 - Fantastic. Rich, textured, nuanced and meaty but fresh and complex.
