“Michigan didn't invent old-fashioned fudge, but it was perfected here. We pay tribute to this time-honored tradition with KBS Maple Mackinac Fudge. By amplifying the rich chocolate notes of KBS using Mackinac Fudge coffee, then adding maple syrup and aging it in oak bourbon barrels, we've created a bold new take on our barrel-aged classic” — 2 days ago
HAPPY Thanksgiving! A Burgundy Thanksgiving part 1. Oysters overnight from Hog Island Oysters!
Double decant and pour. A irresistible pale straw color. On the nose: lemon, floral, toasted almonds, pear, vanilla. Taste: A rich, creamy, big wine with citrus, minerals, spicy oak, crushed stone, and a long honey peach dry finish. Great start. Cheers! — 2 days ago
Although often decent - I found that little red village Burgundies possess the unique elements of their superstar siblings. This one did - albeit in subtle hints, like the silent yet essential intro to a full blown concerto. This was very very good, yet most of all it made me long for a “normal” New Year’s Eve. — a month ago
Had the 2014 vintage this time. Black cherries, black berries, wood and spices, pepper, white chocolate, tobacco. Full-bodied with an amazingly round warm palate. Never-ending finish. — 8 days ago
Amaze-balls. Incredible wine. Unreal color. Light on the palate, but surprising amount of body. Ethereal in a fantastic way. Structured. Long + finish. Happy to say I own a ton of this, in a variety of vintages. Cannot wait to get even more involved with this. — 7 days ago
At 23 years of age, this wine sings with a voice of tropical notes, yet never strays too far into the realm of cloyingly annoying thanks to high notes of tongue lashing acidity. Absolutely gorgeous. Lengthier than the administration of tRump and finishing with so much more grace. — 15 days ago
I’ll preface this with the fact that I don’t drink a lot of Pinot as I’m not a huge fan.
This was an awesome rec from the guys at Amathus! 30+ minute decant. Lovely red color with ever so slight brown edges. Nose contained oak, vanilla, and strawberries. Cherries, cream, maple syrup, and cinnamon on the palate. Definitely on the sweeter side. This was like drinking cheesecake with cherries and cinnamon on top. Reminded me of the Dimchurch Shiraz, except in Pinot form. Could have been a little deeper, but had a great finish! Paired lovely with a sausage stuffed chicken breast, small Cornish potatoes, and cinnamon covered pears. One of the best dinners I’ve cooked in a while too, so I’m sure that impacted the experience and rating :)
Best Pinot I’ve ever had!! Buying more! — 10 days ago
