Cuvée Réservé Châteauneuf-du-Pape Red Rhone Blend 2017

After going long on the 2016 vintage I only swooped up a couple bottles of the 2017 and this is my very first experience with the vintage. The Spring of 2017 presented all sorts of problems for Grenache vines in large parts of the Southern Rhône. A cold and wet May resulted in shatter which lead to yields that were anywhere between 30-60% less than normal. However, from June until harvest, the weather was beautifully suited for grapes; warm and dry. From my humble perspective, the results for Pegaü were nothing short of fantastic! After a few hours in the decanter, this was absolutely slaying the game with head spinning aromas of the purest dark bramble fruit, star anise, sandalwood and “Himalayan Spice” incense. On the palate, this was a concentrated best. Dark and red brambles, seeds and all, with black licorice, black pepper and some bacon fat. Huge tannin and fantastic acid. Long finish that’s lasting for minutes and killer pairing with rack of lamb. I find this to be a tremendous follow up to the 2016 and worthy of any high praise it receives. Probably should have bought more...maybe I can still snag some. The 2017 vintage ended up as a blend of 80% Grenache, 6% Syrah, 4% Mourvèdre and 10% mix of the other 13 approved grapes. As a side note, no “Cuvee da Capo” was made in 2017. — 6 months ago

Very good wine. Bonus that the empty bottle was knocked over by my cats and did not shatter — 10 days ago

Brewery Ommegang

Shadow Brewer Imperial Stout

Ebon and inscrutable, lacing showing creamy curtain to cosmic shatter; coffee ice cream colored. Moist, rum raisin cake baking alongside Black Forest cake with walnuts. Heavy lavender in a rough cut oak crate, makes this smell really beautiful. Vanilla and caramel chocolates entice. Bakers dark unsweetened chocolate, tastes of aniseed, clove, nutmeg, peppercorn; the whole toasty barrel. Burnt fig, cinnamon, espresso bean, with a clear charred oak concealing allspice and malt, in line with its working spirit. Impressive beer, evoking coal and tar pits with its smoky, austere reimagining of dark vulcan arts. Not a sweet one, but fiery and thick on the edges of the cauldron. — a year ago

Nothing like splurging on a 3 pack of Maya only to shatter the first glass. On a positive note - check out the cool hidden art on Favia labels! — 2 years ago

Wow. This is an amazing Malbec. This is the first wine to shatter my premise that you can’t find a quality red under $15. I paid 12 and this is now my go to favorite. Very smooth with a great nose and well rounded Malbec notes on the palate. Just wow! — 9 months ago

Sometimes it's nice to shatter your palate completely. For the money this is one of the best Malbec's I've ever had, hands down. Surly, dark, teeth-coating. — 5 years ago
