Napa Valley Chardonnay 2015

Just enough residual tannin to support the rich fruit forward flavors. Dry and smooth and a hint of Cabernet aroma to lead off. — 8 days ago

Alexis Napa Valley Estate Red Blend 2000

What a surprise! Cork crumbled despite climate controlled cellar. Heady scents of raspberry and cocoa. The wine was showing very well for 20 years old. Fresh, vibrant raspberry, dark chocolate, and a bit of spice. Only had a small glass, but would live to see what this is like after being open for 12 hours. #swansonvineyard — a year ago

Salon Wine Selection Napa Valley Merlot 2017

While the 2017 vintage is still a bit young, it is fruit forward but balanced with a vegetal leaning. Long finish. Slight pepper but hint of bell pepper. — a year ago

Ardbeg

The Ultimate Ten Years Old Single Malt Islay Scotch Whisky

My first Ardberg and it left quite an impression. Gosh! This was like eating bacon and smoking cigars. Ron Swanson should be drinking this instead of Lagavulin 😂 Truly, it feels like someone decided to bottle up that campfire by the sea that's been drenched in bacon fat from dinner the night before. With water, the marine quality becomes more apparent, but that smoke just remains. Only with great concentration can one discern some fruit notes (citrus). The finish is just all about that endless peat. Surprisingly, this whisky was quite "smooth" despite all the extremities it brought. Definitely need to taste more Ardbegs to understand what's going on - not displeasing, but for now, Talisker's more up my alley in the category of peated whiskies. — 5 months ago
