A wine no longer available since Tyler closed his winery to focus on Ones. The nose is stewed prunes and mulling spices lifted by cherry cola notes. The palate is a straight shot of leathery berry with light tobacco and soft vegetal undertones, silky tannins, elegant and understated as it’s aged. Was probably peak a year ago but still outstanding. — 18 days ago
We checked with Marichel and they suggested we finish the 2013s. Last night we made a grilled sockeye salmon and enjoyed this last vintage. Jess wrote the tasting notes: Colour—showing an elegant tawny sheen in the decanter, deepening to reveal a deep pool of rich burgundy in the glass.
Nose—Everything all at once and warming the nostrils swiftly! Richly stewed plums and bright current overtones with an edge of just sliced green pepper. Dark chocolate with violet petals and granny’s Christmas fruitcake. Hint of earth, wood chips, a drop of orange bitters.
Palate — rich brambly fruit, light oak with faint menthol, cherry cola bright note, lingering savoury notes of leather and cranberry, silky tannins, subtle body. — 4 months ago
A beautiful plummy colour. The nose hints at mincemeat, rose hip and softer layer of stewed fruits and a gentle waft of eucalyptus. The palate is powerful, chewy satin and super lush with an elegant dry finish. Lots of earthy undertones like leather, green pepper and tobacco. Paired beautifully with a medium rare strip loin covered in a tarragon green sauce following the famous Relais de le entrecôte sauce recipe. — 2 months ago
Our first wine from our first shipment from Blasted Church wine club. Light pink colour, bright zesty fruit with a lovely clean minerality on a the nose. Dry palate, bright apricot, pink grapefruit and smooth as satin sheets. Delicious. — 3 months ago
