"TOP SECRET 馃殌 Tasting notes: Pale strawberry color. Medium [-] intensity aromas of rose petals, blossom and strawberry with youthful characteristics. Medium acidity and dry on the palate with medium intensity flavors of same with traces of apricot and white peaches, medium alcohol (13.9 ABV), medium body on a prolonged finish. Very good wine. Drink now, as with most ros茅 wines you want to enjoy this pool or lake side. A ros茅 for red wine drinkers.

"Peter and Anna do a nice job with this wine and I was excited to try it. Medium ruby color with medium intensity aromas of red and dark fruits, white pepper, and allspice on the nose with developing characteristics. Dry with medium [-] on the palate with similar red and dark fruit flavors with medium [+] intensity and deeper notes of black pepper, tobacco and tea leaf. High alcohol (15.5 ABV) so definitely a wine for food or a nightcap under the stars. Very good wine, has potential for further aging. Full video review here:聽https://youtu.be/XP7Jh86XeEI"

"PET NAT!! If you aren鈥檛 familiar with P茅tillant Naturel wines - Pet Nat for short - it鈥檚 what the cool kids are drinking now. Before you commit the wine to final fermentation or riddling you capture the wine with enough CO2 inside to create natural carbonation during the final fermentation. Jason does a great job with this and his still ros茅 is also worth a visit - some lees and American oak builds structure during fermentation. You can serve this Pet Nat as a traditional sparkling wine in a flute, I鈥檓 tasting today in a claret glass to capture all of the flavors and aromas for you. 鈥 Review (2020): pale strawberry color, medium intensity aromas of raspberry, strawberry, blossom, pastry crust, with hints of white peach and nectarine with developing characteristics. Medium [+] acidity and Demi sec dryness on the palate with creamy mousse and medium [+] intensity flavors of same with light tannins medium alcohol and a bit of white pepper notes on the lingering finish. Very good wine, drink now - in a large glass to grab all the flavors. 鈥 Full video review here 馃憠馃徏 https://youtu.be/SL_CTUudoWw"

"Unfined and unfiltered lab tasting of the 鈥21 Chardonnay. One third stainless and two thirds oak barrel MLF.

Well balanced acidity and dry on the palate with medium [+] intensity flavors of same with traces of apricot, higher target alcohol (14.6-14.8 ABV) and a long finish with additional tropical notes. Very good to outstanding wine potential. Can drink now, has potential for further aging."
