Esoteric Piedmontese white variety. The name translates to “cat turd” or “cat balls” in local dialect. Apparently because of the shape of the grape clusters? The juice itself couldn’t be further from its vulgar moniker. Tastes like the freshest, purest apricot. — 5 months ago
A bit disappointed that the Watermelon doesn’t feature more prominently, it is nearly undetectable but the pucker moniker holds true! Strongly sour and still delicious. — 2 years ago
A fuller "rosato" and less fruit driven than a lot of Cali' juice, so ok, I guess if ya want to use the Italian moniker I'm not going to kick and scream too much. Good grip from present tannins, sour strawberry, touch of herb (is that thyme?). Totally enjoyable for a cool late summer sunset near the shore. — 5 years ago
Year in and year out, this is one of my favorite wines from one of my labels. A mild garnet color with thin edges. The exceedingly pleasing nose features notes of green tea, shy red cherries, and fresh herbs. Faded rose petals and raspberry crumble round things out.
I hate to use the term Burgundian to describe domestic Pinots. It’s almost always false and just plain isn’t fair. This definitely deserves the moniker. Silky smooth in the mouth with medium acidity and body. Well integrated tannins and some lively spice add to the prettiness of this.
The combination of rusticity and elegance really takes this to another level. Sly and delicate red fruit shine on the palate while the earthiness takes hold. Moist earth, dried forest, and straight up gravel. Long finish showing more spice and just a little kick of cinnamon. Spectacular stuff that really shows what Oregon Pinot is about. — 3 years ago
Certified biodynamic and organic. No SO2 added. A seven year old “natural wine” (though Cooper Mountain has always avoided using the controversial moniker). Drank well over a 3 hour period. No objective, noticeable flaws. Enough to like. — 5 years ago
This blend has a unique story... out of the deadly Caribbean waters of the 17th century comes the true story of Jacquottie Delahaye, an orphan driven to piracy as a tender girl. Later, to evade the law, faked her own death, but upon being discovered earned her treacherous moniker “Back from the Dead Red” stirring fear into the hearts of any who saw her fiery red hair at the helm. As deadly as she was beautiful her legend continues to inspire many a buccaneer!
