Riserva Pipparello Montefalco Rosso Sangiovese Blend 2015

inky maroon. seductively clingy on the teeth - a real stripper, with a gorgeously powdery mouthfeel. black fruits and black flowers, tobacco farm envelope. anise seed, elderberry, bitter almond, arsenic and old lace! fuuuuuck. — 13 days ago

Tilted Shed Ciderworks

Love's Labor Blackberry Cider Blend

Tilted Shed. Love’s Labor. Blackberries, elderberries, apples, wild ferment in Sonoma. One of the best ciders I’ve had from CA. I feel I can taste all the berries and apples used. So we’ll balanced with good tannin and acidity. — 2 months ago

Kirkland Signature

Sancerre Sauvignon Blanc 2019

Since Severns recommendation I gave it a shot. After all i need to figure out his palate. Friends bought this for me as I do not frequent COSCO. This is indeed a very nice wine with bright acidity peach 🍑 notes, lime and a hint of elderberry. Given the price point <<20$ - I rate this high. — 2 months ago

Domaine Duroche

Bourgogne Pinot Noir 2015

Nose has juiced ripe cherries, wet cedar, roses, dry garden soil and faint strawberry jam.

Palate has bright cherry fruit, elderberry jelly, ripe cranberry, wet leather and faint tobacco notes. Great acidity and long finish.

Decanted 5H, this is in the zone now for sure.

Paired with a local whole chicken, 24H brine, Asian style spice rub, cooked on my grill rotisserie with apple wood chips smoking away for about 75m. Potatoes, onions and root vegetables in the roasting pan beneath to catch all the drippings. Crispy skin on the bird and good smoke flavor/penetration in the meat. A great reward for laboring away in the yard and garden all weekend.

Château Musar

Gaston Hochar Pere et fils 2001

Really well balanced and evolved over 2+ hours. Very smooth, dried fruit and flowers, some elderberry, a bit of tobacco/dark chocolate. Really lovely right now. I’m guessing not too much time left. Went great with ham and lamb. — 2 months ago

La Cantina Pizzolato

Chianti Sangiovese Blend

On retreat with pat and greg. This was impressive. Stylized by markings of turmeric and elderberry. Supplemented by a base of cassis and sage. — 24 days ago

Bodegas Ignacio Marin

Divinis Grenache 1903

Pretty, pretty label. Eye catching. And screw top is nice. Dark with a rusty edge. Smells a bit funky. Earth, herbs, ground. Pine cones? Little bit of elderberry. Flavors are meaty and tasty. More berries. Like really good blackberry and licorice. All sorts berry flavored. This is not as inky and bowl you over as some high altitude Spanish Granacha is, but it’s got plenty of acid and hits the right tones everywhere. Very likable. — a month ago


Winemaker's Select Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2016

Lovely, fresh and it has body with a hint of Elderberry at the front of the tongue. — 2 months ago

Unionville Vineyards

Amwell Ridge Counoise 2015

Very solid effort here - 100% Counoise from Central NJ. Yes, the Rhône varietal has verve (acidity) with balance! Medium weight with a feminine bent. Perfect with house lamb burgers w/feta and Tzatziki topping. elderberry and black cherry mango in a Pinot style format. Delish! Easily five more years left in the bottle :) — 2 months ago
