Gobsmacked 2021 Cyclops Love
the hatch wines
Year after year, Cyclops “one eyes” its way through style, composition & calamitous magic. The 2021 is some kind of “wrangler”, Aromatics going off like it went and lassoed some Lemons & took ‘em off to live in an Apple-Tree House. The mouth be a mélange of Melons & Magic.
the story (In Jason’s own words)
I’ve always had a thing for the Germanic aromatics, and when I taste a good blend, a huge smile will grow across my face. If its one of mine, I feel intense pride but if it’s someone else’s, I gotta admit I feel a little jealous.
This one consistently makes me smile. Yes, I am very happy with the blend, but what makes me smile the most is the picture I get in my head when I drink it: My daughter sitting at the kitchen table with her sisters, scribbling away at the cyclops art and handing it over to me with a huge smile on her face. It feels like so much time has passed since then. Now that she’s older I don’t get to see much of her drawings, but when I drink this wine, I remember that moment like it was yesterday.
