Applewood Winery

Pommery

Pommery Brut Royal Champagne

Delightful wine. Worthy of celebration, to be sure, but strong and lively enough for a complex meal. The yeast has an applewood tang on the nose. There an almond depth to the apple/pear fruit, and the tight mousse keeps the acidity alive on your tongue as the slate minerality emerges on its long finish. Yum. — 19 days ago

Le Parvis Châteauneuf-du-Pape Red Rhone Blend 2016

A textbook Chateauneuf-du-Pape: cherry and raspberry paste with subtle notes of applewood. Pure pleasure. Young but tasty. 21 bottles more left in my cellar. — 8 months ago

Felino Mendoza Malbec 2017

The Felino Malbec is a full bodied deep colored and a bold presence of berry, acidity and tannins that satisfy and linger on the finish. Paired nicely with applewood smoked sirloin cooked in a Kamaro cooker. This Malbec will work as a Conversation wine or with grilled meats. — 2 years ago

Michter's

Small Batch Sour Mash Whiskey 1753

Applewood, poached pear, maple syrup and pecans with black lime, ginger lemon-honey, orange bitters, rosemary, baked sweet potatoes oozing créme fraîche, brown sugar and caramel. It’s a noseful! Hot, herbaceous mouthful on the coat. Warm maduro-caramel turns noir in the slanted chiaroscuros of toffee and brittle, respectively. Big lemon citrus with orange zest, banana bread, sage, allspice, mace, cedar, pipe tobacco puff, black raisin, with a svelte acid streak running the length of a generous satin mouthfeel. Impossible value here. Complex notes from the mash make this sparkle with edgy notes of bottled lightning. #Michters #Michterssmallbatch #Michterssmallbatchsourmash #Michterssourmash #whiskey #Anericanwhiskey #KYwhiskey #ky #fermentedmash #upcycledmash #mash #louisvilleky #Michtersdistillery — 4 months ago

St. Bernardus

Pater 6 2016

Darkest brown patched with bubbles as lichens. Magnificent and noble head of sable; loose cartography of lacing. Brown sugar, dark, grainy malt and leather that all turns smoky with a swirl. Dry tobacco whiffs and roasted beets and grilled sprouts and caramelized onion. Light of touch in autumn woods, with applewood, cedar and late afternoon shadows of vanilla bean, caramel thread counts, clove smoke, and light malts to nicely bundle and button the parcel. These perfumes of devotion are lifted on wildflower scrub. #trappist #trappisten #stbernarduspster6 #abbeyale #peter6 #belgianbeer #bier #biere #birra #ale #brstbdrnard — 10 months ago

Lioco

Sativa Mendocino Carignan 2016

Blood-ruby, undiluted tenor from rim to rim. Blackberry-cran with a smoky coat, violets, raspberry reduction, wild nettle, suede, rose petal, dried cherry, applewood, and gingerly ginger, spare cedar, finest snuff, cherry pit and damp clove spiced nose. All with a slight memory of campfire. Black plum, cedar, violet, dried, sour cherry, dark leather, peppercorn, dried cranberry and red currant, cinnamon apple, fine, grippy tannins that integrate into the whole with a pleasing sense of herbs and bitters, sage and lavender. Did not expect this complexity from carignan, and floral notes that evoke like Nebbiolo. Class. .
