Cloud Break Wines

Barrel Reserve California Pinot Noir 2018

Color of ruby, clear. Nose of fresh cranberry, milky vanilla, licorice, spice, some strawberry ice cream, tangerine, and sweet sensation. Taste of spice and zest, some backbone tannins, sweetness, and fresh grapes. Aftertaste of some more warmth in the throat. Easy to drink. A bit sweet for me. On par. — a month ago

@Jae Cho This '16 is doing well tonight, but needs more time still. We enjoyed a '14 & '15 about a month ago and they were in the zone.

Family Reserve Bourbon Barrel Aged Cabernet Sauvignon

Color of light purple and ruby. Beautiful tears. Clear. Nose of black cherry jam, a bit strawberry, fragrant aldehyde, oak, powerful alcohol yet not stingy, spices, and more cedar or woody note. Nose is good. Taste of definitely some spicy bourbon barrel note, ample acidity, really soft tannins, tobacco leaves, peppery and zesty, dark chocolate, ripe grapes sweetness. Taste is chewy and nice. Aftertaste is medium long with a touch of bitterness, yet not bad at all. Nice one. — 25 days ago

Barrel X Saar Riesling 2015

Just concluded the annual Fall seclusion at our cabin in the Rangeley lakes region of Maine, mobile service up there is mostly non-existent, after several days I am posting again. Notes are somewhat brief, as my focus is relaxing and watching the Common Loons swimming and diving in the cove in front of our camp.

Nose has bright green apple, saline solution, distant petrol, under-ripe peach, sliced apricot, clover honey and wet flint
Palate has effervescent and tart apple juice, tart pear, under-ripe peach, green apple peel, wet limestone with solid acidity and a ever lingering sweet/salty/tart finish. A great bottle!

Sailor's Superstition

Rum Barrel Aged Red Blend 2018

Sometimes you have to buy a bottle because it just looks too intriguing to not buy it. This red blend has a great label and great name. It's also topped with a caramel wax drip. This red blend has a beautiful ruby color with tastes of black and red fruits with cinnamon and chocolate. It has been aged in rum barrels adding a uniqueness to the flavor and the aroma. Medium bodied and smoothe taste. This is a nice drinking wine. It's also a great gift wine if you have a nautical, pirate-loving friend! — 5 days ago

Barrel Aged California Chardonnay 2018

Nice Chardonnay. Chardonnay is not normally a top choice for me, but this one was pretty good, I like the oaky-ness. I liked it better than my husband. — 25 days ago
