Estate Bottled Hermann Norton 2006

2006. We’ve had this in the cellar since a really fun bike ride across Missouri long ago. I was surprised how much dark rich fruit remained, how smooth the tannins were, and how great it paired with a grilled Nebraska steak! — 2 years ago

Cross J Vineyard Norton 2015

Blinded a dear buddy in the wine trade on this tonight, guesses all over the place, in a great spot, want to see this in 10+Y.

72H Update:
Nose has crushed blackberries, ripe plum, dried plum, dried tart cherries, moist mahogany and faint moist soil. Palate has tart plum, light molasses, blackberry compote, faint leather notes and fine tannins. Not as good as day one, but no slouch on day three. A wonderful experience, many years in the bottle to go ahead.

@Tom Casagrande Don't count MO out, it'll really take you by surprise.

Perennial Artisan Ales

Abraxas 2020

One of the best. Love the chili pepper flavor with dark and milk chocolates. Cinnamon and vanilla are secondary. The spice is what sets this apart from other beers in this style. Needs no pairing. — 3 years ago

Chambourcin 2017

Taking a cue from @Severn Goodwin I’m drinking some MO wine, which is made just a few hours from where I live. I had never had anything by Stone Hill prior to this, assuming it wasn’t very good, but I was wrong. This is a great light bodied red and was great with a slight chill. Black and blue fruits, forest floor, and a mineral streak combine with medium + acid and light tannins for an easy drinking, dry, fresh red. I bought a few of this producer’s wines and look forward to trying the others. A pleasant surprise! — a year ago

Nice, not had this one yet. Last time I had a Chambourcin it was from PA.

Velvet Red Sweet Concord

Sweet at first and then tart to finish. A very good contrast. Not too sweet and not too tart. My favorite wine so far. — 2 years ago
