McKahn Family Cellars

Rose of Grenache 2019

Light to medium bodied Rosé all day. But this wine can definitely hold its own and did very well with a home cooked meal of fried chicken tenders. This wine actually needed a little bit of time as it was muted immediately upon cork pop and definitely benefited from warming up to near room temp. Light pink in the glass. Strawberry and stone ground raspberry. Finished with a little bit of herbal quality. A really nice wine for a 105 degree summer day, as I'm sure we will have many of them this year. I think this wine is as close to 93 as you can get, and the price for this wine made by a rather unappreciated winemaker makes this an insane QPR. — a month ago

Château Boswell

True Course Russian River Valley Chardonnay 2017

17’ Château Boswell True Course Chardonnay. Sourced from the 1/3 of each Rued, Ritchie, & Sebastopol Vineyards in Sonoma County.
Melka with a home run Chardonnay!
Wow... this Chardonnay is playing in the deep end. Full- body to say the least. Pear, peach, honeycomb. Perfect amount of acidity/minerality from the center of the palate to the back. Top 10 bottles of California Chardonnay I’ve had this year.
Edit - Throw this into a decanter for a short period of time.

Ruinart

Dom Ruinart Brut Blanc de Blancs Champagne Chardonnay

From a blend of 100% premiers crus Chardonnay grapes from recent vintages. Grapes from vineyards Sillery and Brimont (ancestral home of the Ruinart family), and other premier sites. Fine mousse and bubble flow. Citrus and Apple flavors with honeysuckle, toasty notes and lemon rind. Well balanced with nutty character, great mouthfeel on long finish, ending with mineral and yeasty tang. Nice! — 14 days ago

Garrison Brothers

Texas Straight Bourbon Whiskey

I’ve enjoyed Garrison Brothers’ Bourbon for many years now, and have gone through more than my fair share of bottles. Now, at long last, I’ve decided to indulge once more and get another bottle so I can make my all-time favorite Old Fashioned (called the “Hye Fashioned,” which is served at Four Seasons Austin’s lobby bar/lounge, Live Oak). Today was my first attempt at re-creating this sensational libation at home, and it was a hit 🔥 It consists of Garrison Brothers Bourbon, Remy Martin VSOP, Demerara simple syrup, Angostura bitters, orange peel, and Luxardo cherries. The Garrison Brothers Bourbon provides an integrally raw, firm backbone to the otherwise sweet nature of this luxurious iteration of a timeless classic 🥃 — 9 days ago
