Im quite biased since I grew up In Gothenburg and as It really isn’t wine country to any extent this project was a fun experience, and moreover a well made, thick and full wine, yet rich in its mineral potency. — 17 days ago
Holy sweet mother of Moses. The 2016 Royal City is a truly spectacular wine. Full speed on all cylinders with a broad and evolving complexity with new features found in every crook and corner.
Dark concentrated, ripe but fresh fruit profile, cassis, blackberries, blueberries, plenty of lavender followed by meat, iron and a very integrated oak spice and a pronounced crushed stone minerility that gives further dimension to the nose. There is of course a bit of resistance on the palate with its pronounced tannins, but it manage to shake it with its intense concentration on the palate with an expansive mid palate and bottomless finish. Outstanding.
Please give me a napkin and a bloody steak, sorry vegetarians but you could always pair it with a bearnaise only, accompanied by a large spoon.

Poached pear, apricot and dare I say, petroleum? A complex treat from down under. — 14 days ago
Such a nice toasty, malty red from Ancient City Brewing in St. Augustine, FL. The can says “Named after the Matanzas River, this ale pays homage to the early history of our city, when the Spanish took control of Florida from the French in a bloody conflict. Drinkable and robust, this red ale goes down as smooth as a battle against the French...unless Napoleon shows up.” 🍻 — 23 days ago

I was excited as I began tasting this delicious Pinot. Soft on the palate with a lovely finish. Minimal fruit, raspberry and cranberry, the soothing bouquet reflecting this quiet blend. Such a pleasure, with our ore-dinner guests. — 13 hours ago
I got a lot of bright citrus notes. It held up well in the fridge over 3 days. — 13 days ago
