Mexican Coffee Cake Imperial Stout

Religious philosopher Martin Luther said in the 1500s that wine is made by god and beer is made by man. (As grapes ferment naturally and nothing needs to be added and beer is a recipe). -this is a Mexican chocolate cake stout. It is exactly that and perfectly balanced: chocolate, vanilla, cinnamon, habanero (earthy heat). The recipe is spot on. — a month ago

Janeen Proprietary Red Blend 2016

It is time for a tasty Cabernet for my #FridayCabernetfix.

Dark ruby in color with a short reddish rim.

Full bodied, smooth and elegant, with medium acidity.

Dry and very fruity on the palate with a great mouthfeel.

Showing black fruits with cedar, vanilla, leather, earth, Indian spices, chocolates, tobacco, peppercorn, coffee, light cola and pencil lead.

Long finish with round tannins and tangy cherries.

This 6 year old from the great 2016 vintage is showing great complexity now. A gorgeous wine that will age nicely in the next 20 years.

Delicious right out of the bottle and better with airtime.

I had it a year ago, and it was delicious then, but now it is so much better. What a wonderful surprise.

Rich, opulent, spicy and fruit forward.

I paired it with a Charcuterie board of meats and cheeses. A great sipping wine too.

A blend of 90% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Cabernet Franc.

15.2% alcohol by volume.

96 points.

$200.

Green Fin Winery

California Red Blend 2019

Nose of dark fruits like blackberries, vanilla, milky chocolate, a bit tobacco leaves, and some more cherry flavors. Taste follows the nose with good fruity notes plus a bit oaky feeling. Sweet, mouthful, low tannins, and a bit peppery. Aftertaste is also clean with some more grapes and bitter note. Consider the price, quite amazing. — 3 days ago

Blend 2 Sangiovese Blend 2018

This bold wine is quite dark in the glass and it offers up a nose of black raspberries, cedar, clove, vanilla and a hint of mint. On the palate, it’s brawny. Big notes of dark fruit mingle with those oak spices in a way that’s both fruity and savory. The tannic structure is toothy, so this wine wants a steak. — 5 days ago

Pommery

Brut Royal Champagne Blend

Equal blend of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunière. Bright yellow color with hints of green. Bright aromas of lemon, white flowers, freshly baked white bread and red berries. Elegant pallet is full of lemon and red berry flavors. Hint of minerality on the finish. Not overly “bready,” so it is quite refreshing and a good stand alone bubbly. Fresh and clean with great balance. I drank this one from a Pouron. Thank you Kasey and Petey! — 4 days ago

Valpolicella Superiore Corvina Blend 2015

Another outstanding vintage of this classic Valpo! Dark purple color. Busy nose and pallet of fresh and dried fruits including currants, dates, prunes and a hint of pomegranate seeds. Big, and intensely concentrated but the tannins are surprisingly soft. Long and bold finish. A fruit forward wine lover’s dream wine. Thank You Kasey and Petey. — 4 days ago

Monte Dall'Ora

San Giorgio Alto Valpolicella Classico Superiore Corvina Blend 2015

N: smashed strawberries, tobacco, licorice, mascarello cherries, dirt,
P: Nice tannic grip, Black cherries, lots of earth, a buoyant frame, definitely concrete and old fourdes. I’m so glad to have found this. As Louis/Dressner says, if you know all the grapes they grow, you’re probably a master of wine.

Cuvée Rubis 1er Cru Brut Champagne Blend

Another rendition of one of my favorite wines, a most sensual and erotic wine. An alluring deep salmon rose color in the glass with nice effervescence of small bubbles. The nose immediately shows as sweet, sweeter than I would expect but that soon dissipates. Strawberries up front with red cherries and a touch of apple. Crushed herbs and mild spice after some time. There’s a floral aspect here that’s outstanding, as well.

So many rosé champagnes are so similar in ambition and execution that it’s nice to find something that’s a marked step above. 90/10 Pinot Noir/Chardonnay and disgorged in October of 2019 with a dosage of 9 g/l. Nervy and thrilling, it’s an exciting champagne that doesn’t skimp on power. Good balance and structure with a vinous nature. Playful and teasing, without a trace of austerity.

Pure sex in the mouth with candied raspberries and more wild strawberries. Blood orange, grapefruit, and passion for days. Peaches, melons, and romance. A little chalk, a little lust. One of my favorites, year in year out.

Gamache Vintners

Nicolas Red Blend 2009

Blend of 62% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Cabernet Franc and 13% Merlot, sourced from the Gamache and Champoux vineyards. Deep Ruby with aromas of dark berry fruits, floral and pronounced cigar box spice, aged in 100% new French oak. On the palate flavors of ripe raspberry and blackberry with cedar and spice. Fine tannins, long finish ending with fruit, oak and spice. Drink now, no further aging benefit! — 2 days ago

California Growers Wine Co.

Red Blend 2019

Organic grapes! Not too fancy looking label. Dark as blood. Smells like fresh cut wood, a musty library and deep red-purple plum sauce. Flavors are balanced out with a bittersweet tannic edge to match the berry and lighter roast coffee flavors. Also has a fresh chocolate mint leaves meets fennel fronds thing in there. Easy drinking, but dense enough to drink with aged cheddar cheeses. This is a great deal, and example of the type of blend I love. And the icing on the carrot cake is the organic grapes. — 10 days ago

Was this a TJ’s wine?

I think it might have been. It’s also a lot like the organic reserve red blend they have there.
