One Time Spaceman @OneTimeSpaceman


The Moon Duck by One Time Spaceman is not the product of astronauts but rather musician and winemaker Mark Adams.  In this case from the winemaker side of Mark Adams who you might know from Saxum or Ledge. There is not much written about these wines.  The One Time Spaceman is a negociant line.  Wines from this line may be a blend of purchased juice and that Mark fermented in-house himself.  This was a rather interesting wine with an attractive nose and mouth of delicate, fresh berries that in no way reveal any heat.  I thought our bottle showed better on the second night which confirms my view that it is best to cellar this wine for a few years.  Jenn liked it on both nights.  I often think of Rhone blends when it comes to Paso Robles.  In a manner this is but with a good twist.  Give it a try.  This wine is available at MacArthur Beverages.


2010 One Time Spaceman, Moon Duck, Paso Robles – $30
This wine is a blend of Mourvedre, Grenache, Syrah, and Tempranillo which was aged mostly in neutral French oak.  Alcohol 15.5%.  The color is a medium grapey garnet.  The light nose is fresh with delicate berries.  The mouth follows the nose with very fresh berries, spices, and perhaps a hint of nutmeg.  It is light in aspect with some tart acidity on the tongue and minerals in the finish.  There is a persistent aftertaste of ripe, black fruit.  With air this continues to show balance, good acidity, and gentle ripe tannins.  ***(*) 2015-2023.
