Colorado Petite Sirah 2018

Deep purple in color with a short reddish rim.

Fruity nose with blackberries, black cherries, cooked strawberries, oak, light vanilla, licorice, spices, earth, light vegetables, turmeric, black pepper and a touch of honeysuckle.

Full bodied and bold with medium acidity and long legs.

Dry and very fruity on the palate with cherries, sweet strawberries, raspberries, lemon peal, black currants, oak, earth, honeysuckle, spices, herbs and black pepper.

Tangy finish with fine grained tannins and tangy pomegranates.

This is a very unique Petite Sirah from Colorado. Showing nice complexity with a nice mouthfeel. Rich, dense, opulent and tangy. Concentrated, but fresh.

This Single Vineyard Petite Sirah does not resemble a California Petite Sirah.

Still young and needs five years in the bottle to mature properly, but already very yummy. I really enjoyed the nose, and kept smelling on it for a while.

Good right out of the bottle. Good by itself and better with food. I paired it with a charcuterie board of meats and cheeses.

Grapes are fermented on their own yeast. Aged in American oak barrels. Unfiltered and unfined.

15.2% alcohol by volume.

90 points.

$48.

Buffalo Trace Distillery

Old Weller Antique Original 107 Brand Wheated Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey

Peach cobbler, caramel-apple, baked pear tartlet, pine nettle, sweet corn, dried red cherry, cedar-on-grill, brown sugar, nutmeg, cinnamon, chilies, generous oak that includes acorns, crisp vanilla cookie make the nose. Hot initially, with oregano oil, cinnamon and tobacco. Revisit yields subtleties, including lemon oil, grapefruit pith, orange peel, arabica, eucalyptus, apricot, red chilies, Mexican cigar spices, and peppercorn dust. Cinnamon-oak builds to a crescendo of resinous might in a cloud of foundry smoke. Allspice appears with oregano following hot on its trail. Spicy and precise. #oldweller #weller #oldwellerantique #oldwellerantiqueoriginal107 #oldweller107 #weller107 #bourbon #kentuckybourbon #kentuckystraightbourbonwhiskey #genuineoldlinesourmash #oldlinesourmash #buffalotracedistillery #wheatedbourbon #kybourbon #frankfurtky #buffalotrace #antiqueseries — 11 hours ago

Crooked Can Brewing Co.

Purple Cow

One of my favorite breweries in the south. I know, I know, Sweetwater in Atlanta’s great and all, but Crooked Can outta Orlando is something else.

Their seasonal Oktoberfest pictured on the right hits all the right Autumn notes.

Purple Cow to the left of that has got nice açaí, blueberry, and licorice notes.

Down the line, the Pia Kawa is a perfect tart pineapple sipper.

Finally, the Mellow Step, probably the favorite of the flight, has got the perfect amount of hops balanced with a saltwater taffy mango afternote.

10 mile bike ride and flights on the West Orange Trail. Chill.

Touriga Nacional Rosé 2019

David T
9.1

Burrata, roasted garlic, garden cherry tomatoes, olive oil, pesto and Tondo balsamic with chopped pistachios for texture.

The nose is showing; candied, lean, strawberries, cherries, blood oranges, tangerines, raspberries, shades of black cherries, sweet rhubarb, brilliant pink rose petals with some red mixed in, vanillin, watermelon Jolly Rancher, slight herbaceousness, beautiful, saline notes, delicate chalk and sandstone minerality.

The palate palate rushes in juicy, lush and then slides in chalky powder with a slightly waxiness character & near tannin presence. You definitely sense this is made from a hearty grape varietal, like Touriga Nacional. It has beautiful viscosity. rushing cool river acidity. Candied, lean, strawberries, cherries, blood oranges, tangerines, raspberries, shades of black cherries, sweet rhubarb, brilliant pink rose petals with some red mixed in, vanillin, watermelon Jolly Rancher, slight, fresh herbaceousness, saline notes, beautiful, delicate chalk, sandstone & gripping limestone/volcanic minerality. The finish is refreshing, nicely balanced and smartly polished.

I was curious about their Rosé and wanted to try it. However, it will benefit with another one to two years in bottle.
