Raisins, ripe figs, molasses and some coffee. Delicious on desserts or waffles for breakfast — 2 months ago
375ml. A magnificent 30-year young Sauternes. Orange peel, molasses, caramel, ginger spice, and brown sugar. The intense flavors waltzed across the palate with grace and precision. Fresh, vibrant, and not as rich as expected. The finish lasts forever.
Paired with homemade chocolate chip cookies using Levain Bakery recipe and vanilla bean ice cream. — 3 years ago
Delicious Demerara rum. Complex notes of toffee, molasses and somet'in' somet'in' #rumofmypeople — 4 years ago
Annual guys WTF Christmas party with spouses. Lots of great wine. I’ll post my highlights with pics I got.
A rich and decadent night cap to a wonderful evening. Raisins, dark chocolate dipped blueberries and blackberries, fig, and cassis coat the glass. Molasses like texture on the palate with licorice, oven baked blackberry pie, baking spices and a touch of heat toward the finish. — 4 years ago
2018 vintage. Mint, cinnamon, molasses, spent coffee grounds, cassis and orange peel compose the bouquet. Medium body but medium/big tannins. Orange-based tea and earthy finish. Meanders in an endearing manner with just enough richness to coat and mitigate multiple astringent flavors…and ultimately…comes into focus pushing a really delicious balance. Ignore at your own peril/price point. — 2 years ago

Deep purple hue with some garnet. Extraction on the glass and medium-plus tearing. Nose offers black fruit, such as fresh blackberries, black cherry, and currant notes; also molasses, clove, spice, cured meat, and vegetal notes. Tartness and acidity on the palate, lending balance. Also strong tannins with anise and dusty leather notes on the palate. Vintage 2014. 15% ABV. #aalto #riberadelduero #riberadelduerowine #tintofino #spanishwine #oldworld #oakagedwine #meseta #winewednesday #winedownwednesdays — 4 years ago
