Blackberry Wine

Produced and bottled by Crooked Vine Vintners in Petoskey, Michigan — 15 days ago

Calvet-Thunevin (Thunevin-Calvet)

Cuvée Constance Côtes du Roussillon Villages Carignane Grenache 2015

This wine is perfectly aged for tonight. Needs a few years, and it will shine, like tonight.

Smells of blackberry prune preserves.

Tastes of Ripe bush fruit, oregano, super juicy, well rounded mouthfeel, soft, feathery tannins that mingle swimmingly well with the acid and stave.
Great wine, great price. Just needs to sit for a hot minute.

Origins Burgundy Sour Ale

On our sofa for Tanglewood this evening with the Boston Symphony Orchestra. Our guest conductor Juanjo Mena is leading BRITTEN (Four Sea Interludes from Peter Grimes), MOZART (Piano Concerto No. 9 in E-flat) with the talented Garrick Ohlsson on piano and then concluding with BRAHMS (Symphony No. 3).

We're experiencing intense thunderstorms coming through the area tonight and generally the BSO staff prevents people from gathering on the Lawn ever since a patron was struck by lightning in 2008... So for safety, we're at home enjoying beer tonight! Thank goodness for radio simulcasts!

Color is red-purple-brown, still translucent but dark. Mostly a still beer, no notable bubbles at all. Sour/cherry/oak aspects on the nose. Palate is mild-sour, which is good if you're new at these styles of beer, it's more welcoming. Palate is distinctly tart cherry, with a lingering of oak in the finish. Nice accomplishment by the brewmaster in blending of barrel-aged stocks, smooth and enjoyable!

Château Grange-Neuve

Pomerol Red Bordeaux Blend 2015

Damn nice Pomerol. Heavy black cherry nose and honestly there’s a lot of that same flavor on the front. Tannins were a bit high on day one but better day two, I get plum and pomegranate coming through, and thankfully there’s still some acidic soil to stave off the sugar rush. Alcohol burn seems balanced and I’m not gonna lie, I paired Night Two with some Sea Salt Organic Beet Chips by Rhythm. Worked well for me. — 3 years ago

Bodega Catena Zapata

San Carlos Mendoza Cabernet Franc 2014

Lovely crushed berries make up the nose, like a jam making factory at first pressing.

Fruit leather black raspberry, Ouzo like anise, grit from the cherry pit, blanched plum.
Ending in tonsil smacking cedar stave,
Love the push for Cab franc in the fertile glacier hewn soils of South America.

Delicious description! Cheers!

Kerloo Cellars

Majestic Grenache Blend 2016

Grass, coriander, and wet stone - an interesting nose to say the least.
Heavier bodied, blackberry bramble, welches grape juice, white pepper, light tannins and chomping at the oak stave acidity.

Domaine Julien Masquin

Memora Châteauneuf-du-Pape Red Rhone Blend 2016

Smells a bit of wet hat and sweet grass.

Olive, graphite, prune, cherry and some strawberry preserves., Thai basil, chompy stave toothpick tannins.

I would not consider this a classic CDP, more of a soft approach in style and flavor.

Certainly a good every night wine, yet too $$ for what it really is. .

Domaine Le Colombier

Vieilles Vignes Vacqueyras Grenache Mourvédre Blend 2016

Dark cherry and spice make for a lovely inhale.

Black fruits, Pom pith, prune, black pepper, strong and strapping finish stave.
Long finish, needs a couple of years for that new oak to truly smooth out.
