Thrace, Turkey

Edoardo Miroglio

Bio Thracian Valley Mavrud-Rubin Blend 2016

Striking label. Whimsical. Good color. Blood red and purple tinged. Aroma is unique. Water on dry sandstone, anise biscotti and cherry syrup. Maybe a rose petal or hip too. Flavors are fresh and rustic. Like an all-wood house in the country. Near the forest but on the edge. Easy and juicy. This change of pace red is a great wine to talk about and try with the wino nerds. I drank it solo, but I’ll try to get some more. — 25 days ago

Just tasted on Wed. Agreed! It’s excellent.

Tenuta Caparzo

Brunello di Montalcino Sangiovese 2015

Excellent w/marinara pasta entree; pre Turkey 🦃 day wine. QPR
Hi-Times Costa Mesa Note:
“Every once in a while, a wine walks through the door (not literally, but you get the idea...) and just blows the room away. This is definitely one of those wines. Our Hi-Times-Italian Wine Buyer, Patty Quick, believes this is the best Brunello she's ever had in terms of quality-to-price ratio. The juice is outstanding, the price reasonable and the critics are effusive in their praise— creating a fortuitous trifecta for those with access to it.”

Also quite good. Very crisp, very dry. Not a typical Finger Lakes Vignoles. — 22 days ago

Buffalo Trace Distillery

Sazerac Kentucky Straight Rye Whiskey

How does anyone not hoard (regular) Sazerac at ~$25?!
Incredibly smooth, great sweet note to the finish. Again, why haven't I not been buying this for years...?

(BTW Kirkland Bourbon at $30 is worth the price of admission, earthy oak note on the palate is quite similar to Buffalo Trace.)

Counter-Clockwise from top left:
Buffalo Trace (single-barrel selection), Jefferson's Reserve Very Old/Very Small Batch, Knob Creek (9yo), Kirkland Bourbon (7yo), St George single-malt (SM 015), Hillrock (Ancram NY, solera aged, Barrel No. 174), Berkshire Mountain Distillers Shay's Rebellion and Wild Turkey Master's Keep (Batch 0001, 17yo).

I really like that wine, especially with a bit of age, which allows the tannins to integrate.

I had a hard time to pin down the major flavor on this one. Did not have enough time though.
