This sparkling wine opens with bright aromas of pear, pineapple and apricot, followed by nuances of custard, peach cobbler, and almond. The elegant palate features fruitful elements of apple, melon, papaya and lemon verbena. The persistent finish is driven by generous and bright acidity.

Not even this cat and bottle can turn this “missing the most epic pow day” frown (because all the fucking roads are closed) upside down. This bottle is shitty situation is all hangover. I mean, it’s delicious, but it tastes like sour grapes because I’d rather be floating in Tahoe

4th bottle in as many days, not great, but pretty, pretty, pretty good
The Redding Ranch has rich aromas of apricot and orange zest, as well as honey, hazelnut and puff pastry. The flavors are equally as generous with a mix of peach, candied orange and lemon peel, with almond, pecan and butterscotch undertones. The pallet is delicious and coating on entry with a refreshing, balanced acidity.

Past peak ~$85 Riddlers Circle shipment
Mandarin orange, raspberry and blackberry burst out of the glass, followed by ripe cherry in layers of sweet red fruits. The fruitful intensity is complemented by complex aromas of hazelnut and warm brioche. Flavors are generous with bright orange, brambleberry and rhubarb. The balanced palate has a mouthwatering sweet and sour acidity that is long and lingering.

Chains are coming tomorrow and so is a few more feet of snow. Still though, tastes past peak. But, mood and attitude makes all the difference.
