We just had a Wegman’s open up nearby and it turns out they have an absolutely chaotic selection of hard ciders...... much to my delight. This one has a funky taste upfront which is unusual, it gets more natural and dare I say boring once it goes down. It’s not a bad initial taste but it’s definitely different. Almost like a sour beer. Also I just really like the label, call me superficial but it’s much more satisfying to look at than something like Angry Orchard. — 6 months ago
A very confusing Pinot. On the one hand, peppers and cherries for the full two course meal (maybe this is what Willy Wonka wanted to accomplish with his full course dinner gums), but there’s...... no acidity? Am I being pranked? — a year ago
Not their pet-nat. For transcribers: producer Shacksbury, name is Delicious Mystery (Cellar Release).
I should’ve written down what the composition is but apparently I bought this and immediately blacked out because I truly don’t remember. Since it was a temporary cellar release sale I also can’t find the info now 😭 It’s suuuper dry and honestly, if it’s a play on words it could be Red Delicious apples. Also takes like a sour like the last cider I had but even more beer-like than cider-like in this case. I haven’t had beer since March so 🤡 guess I’m trying to make up for that. Bought this as a random 3-bottle cellar release package and excited to try the other two! Shacksbury never disappoints with their cider innovations. — 5 months ago
Like a dip in the pool... has an almost chlorine taste when going down. But surprised! It’s not as bad as I expected for a Vermont bubbly. Id like it in an Aperol Spritz more though. 😍Getting wild out here with social distancing. — a year ago
Wheeeew what a surprise! I wasn’t expecting much - it was a gift given to my father and usually wine gifts are.... mild? This was a true summers day - sunny, full of excitement, and a reminder of everything I’m not getting to do thanks to the pandemic 😷 but at least we get to go on wine journeys of a sort still? Anyway - it’s truly a Traditional style of Riesling with that little sparkle on the tongue. I’d guess this would be a good neutral crowd pleaser. — 10 months ago
Part of a mini-haul (thanks to Westchester Wine Warehouse for speedy and safe local delivery!). Chosen by what my parents wanted generally (eg Chianti) and then based off Delectable and Vinous reviews. Nothing particularly crazy and all entry-level prices, but something to pass the time 😇 and I’ve enjoyed the Travaglini before so I’m excited to try the rest! Especially that piña colada mix... anyone have favorites here or other entry-level suggestions to try in the next round? Chianti, Champagne, Riesling, Rioja, etc are big family favorites. — a year ago
