Oh man, I love the regular Chenin... this one has to be fucking fire. Investigating first thing tomorrow [as it's not popping up on our portal].
A buddy of mine opened up a cheese shop in Lawrence, KS and I recently picked up a few bottles from him to support.
I remember this tasting like a salty saison. Very yeasty.
Oh yeah that's one of the older Southold wines from their NY grapes. I believe I shared a bottle of this in early 2019, but I'd be lying if I said I remembered enough to pass along notes. I do feel like their NY wines were a little bolder and more tannic than the recent TX grapes... likely a function of the climate differences.Oh man, I love the regular Chenin... this one has to be fucking fire.

Echeverría makes a damn fine cab for $12ish (this coming from someone who does not gravitate toward that grape). What shop? I have a friend in Lawrence and I'm sure he might be interested in supporting.
Picked these two up from a friend's shop in the Jersey City neighborhood next to mine. Can't wait to get into the Southold (left; Layne, have you had?). Currently sipping on the Labyrinth and it's just an easygoing, fruity glass of mostly Sangiovese (and then Barbera, Primitivo, and Zin). Sangiovese isn't my go-to red grape any more than Cab, Merlot, or Pinot, but something about this spoke to me, and I am glad it did.
