9.3

From a 16 acre vineyard in the hills of Bel Air. Probably the most expensive vineyard property in the US. It’s currently owned by Rupert Murdoch, but this is from before his purchase in 2013. This is legit good. Much better than any Malibu wines I’ve had. 13.8 listed alcohol and fairly restrained style. Let’s rip down all of those mansions and plant some grapes! — 8 months ago

The Bruery

Black Tuesday Bourbon Barrel Aged Imperial Stout

Dark roasted barley. Bourbon. Toffee. Char. Perfectly balanced beast. Might actually grow real hairs on your chest. My wife smelled it and backed away as if it were smoldering. At 19+ % it only tastes 12% and the bourbon barrel isn’t too much. It’s great stout. Collectible. Fun now, but really needs 5-7yr to calm down. — 2 years ago

Los Alamos Vineyard Pinot Noir 2019

The 2019 is top notch! Cherry jolly rancher without the overpowering sweetness, a bit of herbiness. Pale red color, clean and crisp. Just fantastic! — 7 months ago

Los Pilares

Grenache Carignan Blend 2013

Los Pilares San Diego County Red Blend 2013: Fresh. Natural. Extraordinary. Consisting of 50% Grenache & 50% Carignan, this was a light-bodied, extremely unique wine. Red fruits (cranberry & cherry). Plum. Earth. Short finish. For me, the wine was a bit thin on structure but very clean & natural tasting. This was my first San Diego County wine and it left me quite intrigued & impressed. Hoping to explore other San Diego wines in the near future. Cheers🍷 — 10 months ago
