Tasting Notes
The 2010 Helix Pomatia is my go to “anytime, almost any meal” red blend. The balance of fruit, structure, mineral and savory character allows it to be a great pairing with meat or pasta. The color is a bright garnet. Dark fruits of cherry, currant and black berry meld with adventurous earth tones of loam, chalk, a tiny scratch of pencil seasoned with a speck of sage and a splash of Kalamata olive juice. This wine makes me pause in enjoyable contemplation.         – Chuck Reininger
