    August 21, 2010 - Pucker up! Evokes the limeade I drank the other day in my favorite fresh-mex restaurant – and this is a compliment! Of course this is a slight exaggeration because there was nothing citrusy about the wine, but it had plenty of primary fruit on the nose and palate (underripe strawberry, sour cherry) and had a super tart acidity that was bracing but refreshing. With air, it developed more weight, and a nice earthy, forest floor element.

    July 18, 2010 - Very acidic, earthy, bright cherry fruit. I like it.

    September 26, 2009 - With its nose of black cherry, smoke, roasted barley, black olive, and worcestershire sauce, this is very much a Loire gamay, not to be confused with any Beaujolais. This is fairly concentrated and the texture is more rustic than refined, and driven by robust cherry-tart acidity, but I dig all that. There's plenty of primary, non-sweet fruit on the palate — tangy plum, mostly, with a hint of olive — yet it's just starting to turn autumnal, with aspects of dried leaves and brown earth minerality. I suspect the acidity will seem harsh after the fruit fades but this should still drink very nicely over the next 6-12 months.

    September 3, 2009 - I'll echo my last note, with the addition of "Hells Yeah" More wine should be so honest, so delicious, so food-friendly, so easy, so good.

    May 17, 2009 - Hey there, what's this? A lovely expression of Gamay - strawberries, red cherries, damp earth, swirling florality. Lively fruit in the mouth along with a palate refreshing acidity, lightly grasping tannins and a bed of minerality. If this is what the AOC folks declassify to Vin de Table as being non-typical, gimme more of that. Every $15 wine should be this energizing. Great QPR, great food wine!
