Speechless! Long, lonely afternoon with 2-hour family Zoom...pared down trad turkey feast with just the two of us. But, hard to feel down with a glass of Selosse Rose. Such finesse and balance... I searched two years for a source... and now I swallow hard and purchase in 3’s. Easily the best Rose in my Champagne history. — 3 days ago
Big. Mellowing now beautifully. This is the best and last bottle we have of this. The blend is apparent, it’s CS with a lot going on. I anticipate the steak we have with this will be enhanced. — 2 months ago
What does it say that I photographed this wine next to a cat dish? I don’t know. Maybe it foreshadows the earthiness on the way. The aroma of this starts with rich red fruit. Then with time transitions into earthy flavors of soil and herbs. The initial flavor is rich syrupy fruit and red velvet cake and I love it. Then it transitions into more earth and herbs and minerals. Which I don’t like as much. It’s like a journey through dark fruit jam and then suddenly you’re in a field of grass and herbs with a few cow pies scattered here and there￼￼. But it’s alright. It’s about the whole experience. — 8 days ago
One of my favorite breweries in the south. I know, I know, Sweetwater in Atlanta’s great and all, but Crooked Can outta Orlando is something else.
Their seasonal Oktoberfest pictured on the right hits all the right Autumn notes.
Purple Cow to the left of that has got nice açaí, blueberry, and licorice notes.
Down the line, the Pia Kawa is a perfect tart pineapple sipper.
Finally, the Mellow Step, probably the favorite of the flight, has got the perfect amount of hops balanced with a saltwater taffy mango afternote.

Quite dark in color and on the slighly viscous side; red and blue fruit on the nose with liquorice, cow stable scents, and sweet candy notes; medium alcohol (feels higher than the 12.5%), and acids, cherries and blueberries, and a nutty medium-long finish. Well made and true to the saying that Dolcettos are the Italian Beaujolais (which I usually don’t agree with). — 20 hours ago
Holy cow. Opened yesterday, notes from over 24 hrs open. So much better than my last btl: everything has fallen into place. On the nose: soft mushroomy funk, black cherry, wild strawberry, spice, soft leather. On the palate: fantastic acidity, wild strawberry, cinnamon spice, good density, very hi-toned, and soft, very finely-grained tannin on the finish. Yum. — a month ago
