Zin goodness. Classic Zin goodness. It’s like the well worn blue jeans of Zins. Comfortable, friendly, familiar and casual. That’s a lie I hate blue jeans and really like this wine but I hear normal people do like jeans, very blueberry, vanilla scented, and there’s so raisins and licorice to boot. Oh maybe this is the perfect pair well-worn boots. As opposed to jean. Yeah that’s it.
On another note, has anyone actually worn blue jeans or boots since pandemic? — 5 months ago

Here is a nicely aged Australian Grenache for #AgedWineTuesday.
Ruby in color with a wide reddish rim and medium intensity.
Great nose of blueberries, cherries, licorice, citrus, cedar, leather, light vanilla, tobacco, chocolates and black pepper.
Medium plus in body with medium acidity and nice long legs.
Dry on the palate with blackberries, black currants, plums, light vegetables, earth, cedar, vanilla, leather, spices, dark coffee, dark chocolates and black pepper.
Long finish with fine grained tannins and tangy raspberries.
This is a great surprise. I did not see that coming. This Australian Grenache tastes like an aged Napa Cabernet Sauvignon. Great Complexity with a nice mouthfeel.
Good by itself or with food. Good right out of the bottle and better after 30 minutes of airtime.
This 18 year old is soft, smooth and elegant. Tasty and interesting.
I paired it with lamb chops and heavy appetizers.

Rare Barrel. Solidarity Forever. Saison in oak barrels with pink boots society hop blend for 2018. Amazing funky saison nose. A lot of flowers, rose, I think a cardamom like flavor, grass/hay, and just a hint of strawberries and cream. I really like this one and drinking well now. — 9 months ago
