    June 7, 2018 - Roagna Exploration Tastings (Morrell Wine Bar & Cafe): (Tasted over the course of two days) Upon opening the nose was at first feminine and lifted, showing dusty spices and dried floral tones. Yet, as the ‘07 Crichet Paje sat in a glass, it opened to reveal depths of cranberry, sour cherry and strawberry, followed by fresh rose, stone dust, and a hint of cedar. On the palate, I found silky textures offset by brisk acidity in a lifted and refined style as pure red berry fruits mixed with inner florals and spice to create a remarkably pretty display. Fine tannin mounted and made it itself known throughout the finish as dried cranberry, minerals, cedar and inner floral tones lingered.

    On the evening of the tasting, the wine seemed almost weedy, with restrained cherry and strawberry fruits, crushed stone and roses. On the palate, it displayed incredibly light and feminine textures with pure strawberry, green stems and zesty acidity. Firm tannin coated the senses throughout the finish as hints of dried strawberry lingered long.

    On day two, the Crichet Paje changed once again. This time the nose was more exotic and floral, as the weedy character from the night before seemed to gain sweetness and spice, making it much more attractive, as well as adding a darker and richer personality; as strawberry changed to cherry laced with roses and hints of mineral undergrowth. On the palate, I found textures of pure silk, with zesty acidity and sour cherry fruit which added energy and thrust. The finish was long displaying fine tannin which saturating the senses, as dried red fruits, minerals and inner rose tones lingered.
