Red Mountain EstateInle Lake, Shan State, Myanmar.
Sauvignon Blanc 2014 Dry
Holy floral! It’s so tropical, grapefruit and pineapple. It has a bit of funk both sweet yet sour all in the far back of the throat. It’s somewhere between a sweet pear and a sour Lychee, these vines have definitely got some sun.
Muscat Dry 2013
A light straw color with legs like mountains with an aroma of basil and apricot. A sweet herbal profile like watered down sweet lime juice. It’s tropical sweet drink time.
Red Shiraz-Tempranillo Dry 2013
A deep purple color, raspberry on the nose with a ton of alcohol. It has a tannic center and a sweet finish. Coupled with the alcohol level it has something like a brandy profile, with notes of blackberry and a sour herbal funk on the finish. + Lavender!
Late Harvest 2015
Smooth as lemonade on the pallet it has a bright citrus profile on both the pallet and the nose. It lingers on the tongue and has a long mouth feel yet somehow not a high alcohol content. Sweet sipping for the afternoon.
Pinot Noir 2013 Dry
Holy legs, it’s like scarlet Johnson in red lipstick driving a new honda. Nail polish on the nose, black and young. Not quite finished but as the vines age the leather profile of the wine will hopefully get more complex and deep. Very little tannin with a sour edge, like sour candy.
Cabernet Sauvignon tastes like the bottle has been open for a few days. It’s brisk, easy and has some residual sugar so enjoy a few glasses.
Resiliency: 6/10 The flavors are big and tropical. The vines don’t seem to get the cold needed for vibrant acidity.
Affordability: 9/10 This ain’t Napa Fo’ So’! 4000 Kyat for a tasting is a serious steal and there’s a gorgeous view.
Cannabis Pairabiltiy: 8/10 While the Red Mountain Estate isn’t somewhere you can openly blaze it up, take a bottle to go and pair it with some tropical strains.
Dopeness: 7.5/10 #wine
