Great notion berry pusher tart ale. Insane! Was super skeptical but wow is this refreshing, sweet, creamy, and tart. I’m not sure I’d guess this was a beer but it is one of the best hot day beverages I’ve ever had. — 11 days ago
Wine 2/12 (Portugieser)
Nose has black cherry, brambly blackberry, wet Hemlock, lemon zest, dried strawberry, tart blueberries and moist garden soil.
Palate has blackberry, tart plum, black tea, dried citrus, light tannins, perfect acidity and a long finish.
Portugieser, where have you been all my life??!!
Once again it is notable that I have made one full trip around the Sun earlier this week. We had our small, social bubble team to the house for celebrating my getting older and somewhat less flexible in advancing age...Whatever will be done when I creast 50? Well, at least it's several years until needing manage that concern.
We enjoyed well-salted Ribeyes (Kinderhook Farm - Valatie, NY, prepared 48h in advance), turning to a beautiful medium-rare after a mere 12m of grill time and smashed, small red potatoes with capers (yeah try it, don't judge me yet). None of the bottles were particularly planned as 'steak wines'; we didn't care as it really was a wine nerd-fest of grapes/regions, from Burgenland, Austria to Brittany, France. Wine and food were on individual plateaux today. This was the vom Boden Spring Experience case, expertly curated by Stephen Bitterolf, and well received by our tasting crew. — 2 months ago
So into this. High acid, blackberries, salty, some effervescence. — 5 months ago
Very nice Paso Robles sourced red blend. Pleasant nose, complex on palate with just enough tannins to be bold but not overwhelming. Bonus is that portions of sales go to a pet rescue I. Honor of the winemakers former pet Kaley for whom the wine is named. — 2 months ago
