2020 Ruth Lewandowski Cuvée Zero
Tinta roriz, souzao, touriga nacional in a rose blend here.
Evan Lewandowski’s project here, with Ruth ‘a figurehead’ of sorts, albeit fictional. Some outstanding wines out of this wine producer and Evan a bloody ripping fella from my chance meetings. Of the avant garde sect of California. A mix of Fox Hill Vineyard and the Rorick Heritage Vineyard. Lovely stuff here. A pretty melange of watermelon juice, cranberry drink, juniper, dried forest berries and a general sense of sparkly, shiny, bright tangy pizzazz. Lighter expression but some beauty in tension, drawn long, finishes dry and lightly savoury. So pretty, so delicious, that wonderful zone of light red or rose being juggled. Addictive.
