Taken to Selby's in Redwood City. Tawny color, with a deep reddish center and clear rims. Almost opaque. Awesome aged Barolo nose. Notes of a cup of dark red fruit, tea, rose petals, anise, mocha and some balsamic thing. Great balance of the remaining fruit with softened tannins. In a great spot for drinking. — 18 days ago
First rum I’ve ever liked, I’m 40 years old and whenever i drank rum I always gagged and felt the burning from the sins of a thousand years of hell burning inside my face, throat, and chess. This rum, however, felt like a hot cup of tea during a fall thunder storm. Perfection! — 2 years ago
Purchased this little gem while traveling and I'm thoroughly enjoying it.
Bright with fresh berries on the pallet. The finish is slightly bitter.
I must admit that I'm in a hotel room during an early snow in Kansas, listening to Edith Piaf on my bluetooth speaker. Thus, the only glassware available is your typical thin plastic hotel cup.
But, I cannot complain. I truly cannot complain.

Bought while staying in Châteauneuf-du-Pape, the 2016 Cuvée Vieilles Vignes from Domaine de la Charbonniere, a wine based largely on very old Grenache, is a powerhouse wine from this region that demands serious patience. Almost undrinkable on the first night, it performed better on the second having had plenty of air - but still, it’s a colossus of a wine that will doubtless have many fans. I have to admit, not really my cup of tea! — a month ago
Citrus and floral on the bouquet and palate. Smooth and full mouthfeel with tropical notes. Great to start the Grey Cup viewing! — 3 years ago
Grey Cup Sunday!! Bought this Icewine last year in Ottawa while there to watch the Grey Cup, so I brought it out to celebrate having the Stamps in the Grey Cup again this year. Apricot, peach, honey, absolutely superb Icewine, especially including the lower price point. Totally recommend if you’re a fan of Icewines, cause it is definitely sweet! Go Stamps Go! 🐎 🇨🇦 — 4 years ago
#4 of Jura Savoie evening
Lovely aromatics, very Pinot style with red berry fruit and nice undergrowth. A good mineral whiff, too.
On the palate this is feather light but with loads of character. Nice precision with a light yet persistent tannic frame, juicy acidity and light red berry fruit.
Brilliant drinkability though, I admit, it’s not everyone’s cup of tea.
Love it! — 7 months ago
This chardonnay is a gastronomic wine and will pair very well with chicken, pork and fish. I drank it with Sous Vide prepared salmon with lemon risotto and it was excellent and made the wine smoother. The complex flavors in the wine like lemon and custard are very intense and the the acid, fruit and mineral are very well balanced. A bone dry chardonnay and probably not everyones cup of tea. — 3 years ago
