    September 25, 2018 - 12.8% abv. Screwcap closure. Grenache: 88% Syrah: 12% Whole bunch. Mellow with ripe fruit and just a hint of pepper. Tastes like it might be higher in alcohol than the 12.8% indicated on the label. Slight tartness but pleasant--tart cherry, fine tannins. Slight sediment in the final glass. I have one bottle remaining.

    October 15, 2017 - Very light red. Elegant red berry fruit with cinnamon, shezchuan pepper, earthy funk and hints of cherry. Delicious earthy berry fruit flavours and a fuzzy dry finish.

    Could improve a bit but delicious now. More old world then new.

    January 19, 2017 - A very interesting and unique wine; This is fairly light-bodied, with an elegant core of red berries, florals and earth tones, with snappy acidity on the finish; I would have preferred a touch more mid-palate depth and presence, but I nonetheless still enjoyed this

    February 13, 2016 - Funky wine. Give time for air to open the wine up. Its a different style but quite good if you are open to it.

    February 7, 2016 - Such a unique wine. Super unfiltered throwing lots of funky sediment. Bright cherries that are straight up dirty - funky and definitely not for the faint of heart. Enjoy the Ochota style and this is a great entry level way to see if it's your bag.
