Tastes like summer in the fall! Birch street bistro with Heather! Had 1.5 bottles! — 6 days ago
Deep gold in the glass. This bottle was super reductive at first; but behind the pungent barnyard was lots of smoke and flint, and a seriously loaded palate of stony minerals and firm, just-ripe tropical-leaning fruits. So concentrated on the palate with dried salty yellow plums and a sweetness of ripe apples on the finish. Delicious. Definitely needed a decant though. — 16 days ago
Really tasty for the price, but lacks true body or tannin — 3 days ago
This salmon-pink Loire crèment is a bottle of pure pleasure. Cab Franc rosé Brut, with all the trimmings. Great fruity nose, a bit of toast in it. The palate offers a fabulous swath of cherries, strawberries and a hint of raspberries. The fruit is all on the ripe side, and the acidity is nothing short of a razor line. Great sipping, great pairing with just about anything. — 10 days ago
Stems, skins, leftover grape pulp, polyphenols. Gimme all that and more.
This stuff is perfect to be canned and sold to the masses for beach day gallops and picnic frolics.
Intense, supercharged, lychee on Fast & The Furious NOS. Ludacris and The Rock give their blessings on this whip of a drink. Okay, too much.
But this is such a great way to use the byproduct that would normally go to waste and it’s tasty and extremely drinkable.

Picked this up from Eataly at their new Westfield location around WTC.
Oranges galore. Apricot. Citrus, tangerines, pomelo, come one come all. The great tangerine is in town. Ripe mango as well.
Mango juice mixed with orange soda. Lovely. Perfect balance of all the wonderful qualities of orange wine. Bubbles, natural unctuousness balances with honey and medium acidity.
Really blown away by this one at how simply it comes off. — 14 days ago
Perched above the Dão river that snakes its way through granite valleys, the Adega de Penalva is one of the leading cooperatives in the area. The group boasts around a thousand member growers, but it’s important to note that the average holding per member amounts to barely over a hectare. From these small plots they craft simple but delicious wines with a real sense of place. This wine is 40% Encruzado, with 30% Malvasia and 30% Cerceal, hand-harvested, fully destemmed and fermented and raised in stainless steel. — 18 days ago
