    October 27, 2018 - 2015 Northern Rhones Blind: Single blind. Clearly one of the natural producers with a bretty touch to the black fruit and olive aromatics. Quite juicy, forward and easy to drink. Fun now. I liked it but am in no rush to find this wine, and I don't think cellaring provides upside.

    October 27, 2018 - Most of the 2015 Northern Rhones worth a damn, blind (Chicago, IL): Served single blind. Immediately identified as the Ooka. It's so distinctive and it's so obvious this is one of those "natural" wines, but there's none of those unpleasant mousy aromas here. Very clean, even if the floral tones of natural winemaking do rear their head. The high-toned nature (and slight spritz) of this wine seems to not only accentuate the floral aromas, but also some really nice olive tones as well. (As a side note, I've always loved how La Grande Colline translates to 大岡. It's a great multilingual play on words.)

    November 3, 2017 - double decanted at 10am for dinner at 7pm. When I opened the bottle at 7 it had a decent amount of spritz, nothing a good ol plug and shake couldn't handle. Nose was all ripe purple fruit and violets, palate was a bit lean at the moment and shut off, but started to peak out with a dense weighty fruit. Purity is still there which is pretty awesome.

    September 4, 2017 - A young tannic beast. Needs a lot of time. Expected it to be more natty but it was pretty clean.
