Listan Prieto & Tintilla, Canary Islands, Spain
Envinate, which means ‘Wine Yourself!’ is a Spanish winemaking collaborative founded by four friends hailing from four different regions of Spain. These highly individualistic wines are made with the goal of expressing the distinctive terroirs of Spain and its Atlantic coastline. Benje Tinto is made predominantly from 70-100 year old Listán Prieto vines grown on sandy volcanic soils, aged for eight months in a mixture of concrete & French oak, bottled unfined & unfiltered. Benje Tinto is open-hearted and rarin’ to go— if it had a Zodiac sign it would be Aries, spicy & intense & so very alive. Cherry juice, strawberry fruit leather, zippy pink peppercorn. Wild, light-bodied, not too tannic, like if Beaujolais were more of a ballad & less of a pop song.

Gamay, Loire Valley, France
A sexed up Gamay with a husky, throaty voice that really does things to you. You met La Pause at an art gallery & fell head over heels in lust after finding out they’ve published three volumes of experimental poetry that is actually, like,really good. Now you’re all, “Is it crazy that I want to tell La Pause I love them on our third date?” Yes, it is, but we totally get it: we’re in love with La Pause too. 40 year old Gamay vines are grown on clay & limestone soil, elevage takes place for around eight months in neutral vats prior to bottling without filtration, resulting in a pure & straightforward expression of grape & terroir. It’s sort of like Loire Valley Gamay started palling around with Northern Rhone Syrah, managing to stay entirely true to itself while concurrently picking up a few of Syrah’s vocal tics & mannerisms subconsciously: it’s a smidge meaner than your average Gamay, Gamay in a beat up vintage leather jacket, though of course it’s still a sweetheart underneath, with a piping hot mainline of red fruit energy. Spiced plum, ziploc bag of Craisins, scratch & sniff strawberry.But wait there’s more! Bouquet of dried violets! Beet juice reduction! Kitten’s tongue tannins! And last but not least, BIG limestone energy like stealing a rock from a vineyard and sniffing it alone in your hotel room later that night. Falling asleep with the rock on your pillow.

You really can’t go wrong with a Langhe Nebbiolo! These baby Barolos are utterly classic & blend the trademark Piemontese complexity with a little bit more of an everyday vibe, AKA the most obvious instance of a win/win situation this world has ever known. Grippy & full-bodied, bright cherry, rose petal, tobacco & tar, your bosses’ bosses’ bosses’ Christmas present on lock.
