On The Road Grenache 2012

Always great. Opened this and was big out of the gate still. Not too much. Put it in the fridge overnight. The next day it drank beautifully. Smooth and balanced with ripe fruit. Great wine! — 20 days 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. — 11 days ago

There were three of us, but that was a brutal night for the liver. It’s amazing stuff

Stampede Columbia Valley Red Blend 2016

It’s is a great wine for the price. It’s a smooth, full bodied wine with a fragrant cedar smell and a prominent cherry flavor. — 3 days ago

Eastern Peake

Pinot Taché On Lees Pinot Noir Rosé 2017

Definitely serious rosé. Almost stern, like it’s looking down its nose at us for expecting anything as frivolous as a crisp and lively Provençal rosé. It has weight and textures and is almost a bit much as an aperitif, but all makes sense when the food arrives. It paired well with baked salmon and could probably take on more serious dishes — I can see it working well with charcuterie on a spring afternoon. Good concentration and length. Interesting wine. — 17 days ago
