Domaine Mamaruta 2017 Cacahuete, France
Now when I say mature, I don’t mean this is close to the end and you need to drink it now. But in the natural wine world, a lot of these wines are made to open and drink and have fun. While you can have fun with this wine, you can also sit in your favorite chair with a nice book and get deep into the flavors of this wine. After spending 9 months in neutral barrels this wine has rich notes of plums and dark cherries. A savory white pepper characteristic brings a little tannic structure which leads to slightly briny, black olive finish.
