Marotti Campi

Superiore Orgiolo Lacrima di Morro d'Alba 2015

Great Thanksgiving wine! Dried cherries, rose petal, gum Arabic, cedar-Saigon cinnamon-oak, elderberry, currant, nutmeg, blueberries. Black pepper on entry softens to black and red cherry with lavender and violet. A touch of cherrywood a smaller touch of applewood, a minute touch of hickory and a nano shaving of mesquite. Laden with inlay. Sour blackberry finish speckled with lingonberries and myrrh.

Château Baracan

Cadillac Red Bordeaux Blend 2019

NOSE: cinnamon, cedar, elderberry, cassis, leaves. Smells nice.

TASTE: strong acidity, medium bodied, much less fruit than expected. Good! 90.

Late Bottled Vintage Unfiltered Porto Port Blend 2014

Black currant, elderberry, and cedar on the nose. Thick, spicy cherry chocolate. Perfectly balanced and dry for an LBV. Very chewy and grippy — making this wine a real treat. — 3 years ago

Limerick Lane

Russian River Valley Zinfandel 2020

Haven’t had limerick lane for 15 years. So well balanced. Nose is spices, herbs, dark berries. Palate is very nice with cherry, elderberry, spices, cocoa, cedar. Great zin. Better after 90 minutes of air. — 3 months ago

Azienda Agricola Gianfranco Daino

Suber Nero d'Avola Blend 2018

Yowee this is a vigorous wine! Color is pretty saturated and youthful. Nose she’s intensely zingy dark berry (elderberry and black raspberry), animal notes and decomposing granite like a northern Rhone Syrah. Wild. in the mouth it’s joltingly electric with acidity, but that is balanced by concentrated ripe dark berry fruit. There’s also deep minerality and a note of new baseball glove leather. The tannins are present but we’ll managed. Finish is long and lip-smacking. Really good and really unique. — 9 months ago

Equinoxe Crozes-Hermitage Syrah 2018

Smell of ripened sweet plums in an orchard where a strong aromatic herbs are grown along the edge.

Dense and lovely - this wine shows bright, rich fruits, raspberry pie, unsweetened blackberry jam, hints of Provençal herbs with a lip smacking tanginess, and elderberry acidity.

Give me a Skurnik find any day.
Delicious !

Berryessa Gap

Yolo County Malbec 2018

Yet one more vintage of one of my go to Yolo County wine. Color is pretty. Dark red with a hint of rust on the edge of the wine. Smells like books, wet gravel and pomegranate molasses. (& maybe blackstrap molasses too). Flavors of chalk, elderberry/cherry syrup, unlit cigar, and herbs. Something slightly musky here. More of the French than the low cost Argentine style in this. This is a unique and lovely CA wine. All French wine lovers should try it. — 6 months ago

Williams Brothers Brewing Company

Ebulum Elderberry Black Ale

Thus far, my favourite from this fine Scottish brewery. Amazed with how many good beer/ale brewers there are in the UK.

Chocolate, coffee and berry notes.

Berry flavour is present but not overwhelming.
