Scientist, professor, and wine enthusiast (not necessarily in that order). Enjoys sharing great wines with my wife and friends...
Fantastic new beer from Jolly Pumpkin. Great aromas of blackberries and raspberries, just enough tartness to keep it alive, this is one of the better JPs I’ve had in a while (doesn’t come close to the La Roja Grand Reserve we had at Zwanze Day yesterday, though). Great beer, though! — 15 days ago
Terrific pinot from Hirsch, the San Andreas was the best pinot we tasted at a recent wine dinner featuring a number of their wines. The wine lacks a bit in terms of tannic backbone - not sure how long this will last - but the fruit and spice on the nose and palate are great. Went really well with Vanessa’s mushroom risotto! — 8 days ago
A little disappointed with this incarnation (although it improved considerably with more time in the glass). Flavors were definitely muted. Might need some more time in bottle, but this was the weakest of the three JPs we opened tonight. — 23 days ago
