My current jam. Tastes like pickled melon rind, lime, and a crack of white pepper. I want something salty to go with it! — 6 months ago
Chasing the old seahorse again. Rich and developed,, yet there's a freshness that keeps me coming back for more. Totally cohesive for a wine that I normally love to call weird. — a year ago
Making Puttanesca, and there just wasn't anything right for it. So, i left the sauce on the stove and dashed to the liquor store across the street. Didn't see the vintage, just saw the $15 price tag.
What I'll say is this: sometimes you get lucky. Also, support local businesses. And don't burn your house down just because you need wine. Special shout out to the lady who owns the store who always says "You know, we do have cheaper wine." Your secret is safe with me.💃🏽 — 10 months ago
Delicious birthday bubbles! The creamiest mousse, and the craziest complexity. Sometimes it's important to go back to the basics -- ripe healthy grapes make great wine. Duh! 💫🍾 — 10 months ago
One of my favorite BIO-D wineries out of NZ that never fails to surprise. Full of goopy golden pears, canned pineapple, and honeyed apricots. Lusciously sweet, and weighty at 14% abv. Watch out, this wine will revolutionize your Thai BYOB night. — a year ago
