Firecracker Wines

Corona del Valle

Valle de Guadalupe Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

Black cherry, prunes, blackberry bushes, cocoa powder, burnt toast, and firecracker smoke on the nose. Similar notes on the palate, short juicy finish but slightly chalky tannins linger quite a while. Had more the next day, it’s changed quite a bit. Smoke smells are tempered, cherry smells are stronger. Same with the palate - stronger fruit, softer wood influences. Mouthfeel is still juicy but more polished, astringent fruits and spicy tannins on the finish decrescendo more slowly and skillfully, and a touch of Szechuan peppercorns linger a long time. Had to bump up my rating. Definitely recommend opening the bottle a day prior to drinking

Maison Rouge Côte-Rôtie Syrah 2013

Like an intelligent child, testing the limits of manipulation. This is gonna be a firecracker in 10 years. Suppressed black pepper and olive notes with a muted floral nose and tightly wound fruit. Call me crazy, but this has a ruby grapefruit quality to it right now. Just an infant. — 5 years ago

Wallis Family Estate

Seraphim Diamond Mountain District Cabernet Sauvignon 2013

Softly polished subtle notes of summer berry bushes, firecracker smoke, faint hints of prunes, pine bark, and candy cane in the bouquet. Prune juice, tart cherry, vanilla extract with strong chalky tannins puckering the tongue.... stronger blackberry and softer tannins emerge after a full 24 hours (!) in the decanter. Always a fun little adventure to smell and taste this one. — 7 months ago

Clos Rougeard

"Brézé" Saumur Chenin Blanc 2010

Citrus and fading oak on the nose. In the mouth it reminded me of sushi as this bottle was all about texture. Sat in your mouth but then started to build like a firecracker with a long fuse. Slowly citrus flavors and nut flavors are joined by apple skins and sets up camp on your tongue. Squats there but never explodes . — 3 years ago

Minerals and some gun flint on the nose with hints of chocolate. Has a little firecracker taste! Mineral and gun flint follow on the tongue! This is such a rugged Pinot! Love it! Almost for those that truly can enjoy such a big daddy Pinot! — 5 years ago

Castello dei Rampolla

Sammarco Toscana SuperTuscan Blend 2009

This is a firecracker of a wine! Very soft and open with a enormous length. Love the fat, spicy taste. This is pure silk and now very enjoyable. — a year ago

Ridge Vineyards

Monte Bello Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2014

Works every time. So fresh and youthful. 13.5% alc. Always a great pleasure to try a Monte Bello. Didn’t drink enough to admire all the layers, but it’s gonna be a firecracker. — 3 years ago

Bell's Brewery

Third Coast Old Ale

Muddy old girl, rusty brown with a shock of bone white wisps, shoreline lacing with mangrove roots. Whiskey soaked raisins and grilled peaches leap from the glass. Firecracker flavors of gun powder and rum barrels of American oak. Match-singed paper, ginger and root beer. Soy-carmelized eel, dark, unsweetened chocolate. Licorice extract, toasted coconut, burnt bay leaf, espresso. Brooding beauty that has no quit in her. — 5 years ago

One of the best (and accurate) tasting notes I've ever read.
