Have you every tried durian? The stinky Asian king fruit: bitter at first but very buttery with strong stings of honey lemon. Tastes like sweet love but short in tongue cause of lack of time. — 4 months ago

R.W. Moore Vineyard Zinfandel 2011

Nose has ripe black cherry, ripe raspberry, dried cranberry, dried mint, spice cake, wet cedar box and vanilla bean.

Palate has chocolate covered dried cherry, eucalyptus, dried fig, raspberry jam, menthol and dried strawberry. Mild tannins, light acidity but long finish. At peak enjoyment for this bottle today, in 2021. Decanted 6H.

Paired with pulled pork sandwiches, a Superbowl Sunday tradition for us. A local pork shoulder (Mill River Farm, New Marlborough, MA), dry spice rubbed and rested for 24H, then 10H in the slow cooker; it's just falling apart...so beautiful, our kitchen smells amazing! Garnished with our garden bread & butter pickles, homemade barbeque sauce, pickled red onion and a dash of cilantro, all a worthy combination.

Greg Awatere Valley Single Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc 2018

The 2018 is once again a very herbal expression. On the nose, tomato plant is already making itself known along with pear and starfruit. Bright and alive but with a palate again showcasing that tomato plant and green fruit. Not overly acidic here. — a month ago
