AJ Pearce

Mt. George Vineyard Coombsville Cabernet Sauvignon

I love a bottle of cab I can open and right away tastes good. Another amazing cab from AJ Pearce. Full bodied with nice structure. Slight tannins to round out. — a month ago

Buffalo Trace Distillery

George T. Stagg Limited Edition 128.2 Barrel Proof Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey

I’m not really a bourbon guy, but I’ve tried most of the ‘greats’. This was a very generous gift from a friend. I’ve had it before, and this was just as epic. It’s a stunning bourbon. Screw your Pappy’s, this is the real deal. There’s roses and floral notes at the start. A freshness you really don’t expect given the intensity of the alcohol (waaaay overproof) then an intensity of taste on the midpalate with all the caramel, and depth you’d expect of a great bourbon, but loads of complex secondary stuff. It’s a trip on the palate with a midpalate would be brutal in other hands given the alcohol level, but here it really sings. I’m a wine guy. This is incredible once you get over the shock of the alcohol. If you only splurge on one bourbon, for me, this is the one. — 2 months ago

Kosta Browne

Gap's Crown Vineyard Pinot Noir 2016

I know less about pinot than George Costanza knows about women, but I'll be damned if this isn't an exceptional wine. Poured a beautiful garnet color. Forest floor and raspberries on the nose. Same on the month, with balanced tannins and moderate acidity. I can't articulate any other flavors other than "this tates good." A long, 30-second finish leaves me with no response other than, "more please, this is an amazing wine!" Having no reference point for other pinots, all I can say is drink up, this is a fantastic wine. — 19 hours ago

Notes from Mia Klein:
The 2005 vintage gave ample rain in the winter, charging up the soil water profile for a very nice growing season. Temperatures were moderate and consistent from early spring through October. Both the mature, established Cabernet Sauvignon vines and the now five year old Cabernet Franc, Merlot, and Petite Verdot vines produced some wonderful juice.
