Matthiasson

Napa Valley Sweet Vermouth

9.3

My homemade warm, Bourbon Pecan Pie with Marianne’s Old Tyme Vanilla...our favorite ice cream maker & second favorite ice cream from them.

Pie made with Redwood Empire “Pipe Dream” Bourbon.

Tawny Port would have been sweet over sweet over sweet...way too much & over powering. The Matthiasson Sweet Vermouth is the perfect pair. It captures the pie with a gentle hug without overwhelming it like Tawny would do.

As I was making my pie, I realized there are very valid heath reasons for only making this once a year. But, wow is it amazing!!!

Our group will likely never go out for another formal dinner if the choice is ours, it just wouldn’t be as good on multiple levels.

The Matthiasson Vermouth starts like summer sun tea with a touch of sugar, subtle brown sugar/molasses background, hints of toffee, butterscotch, marmalade fruit, dry stone fruit, dry pineapple, orange citrus, salted nuts, chalky soils, grainy volcanics, warm toast, slight honeycomb notes, vanilla with dry floral bed. The acidity is insane. The long finish is; unique, extremely well balanced, lush, elegant with persistent length. On the back end, you perceive the most subtle quality of Vermouth.

Brilliant beverage creation!

Voyager Red Wine Blend 2012

Another delicious bottle. Even after being open a few days it's drinking smooth and full bodied with no off flavors or smells. I think we will have to go back and get a case of this. — 6 days ago

Côte-Brune Côte-Rôtie Syrah 2015

Nose has that old burgundy water on hot brick aromatic. Deep really dense violets. Complex. Wow. Stunningly aromatic.

Palate is sweet succulent fruit. Sweet cherries. Incredible. So juicy. A hint of cherry licorice. A hint of balsamic but not unpleasant. Lovely old classy richness. Tastes old and expensive.

Bought from fass selections.
