Fruity, purple, dark cherry, and earthy are our notes. Paired nicely with homemade gourmet pizzas. — a month ago
Nose has cut strawberry, ripe raspberry, dry chalk, baking spice and light alcohol.
Palate has ripe cherry, fresh raspberry, dried black cherry and dried cranberry sprinkled with allspice.
Decanted ~2.5h, a young wine that would appreciate a few more years in the bottle. Tonight it paired successfully with homemade burgers from a local farmer in Columbia Co. NY (Kinderhook Farm).
Happy Memorial Day to all, especially those who have come before me to protect the freedom we enjoy in the USA, Thank you. 🇺🇲 — 3 days ago
1997 Spottswoode Cabernet. Opened and poured. Served with burgers and homemade fries. A little flat with a sharp finish at first. Not sure if it might have been stored incorrectly. However, it opened up as we ate and all that unpleasantness blew off. Blackberries, blueberries, cassis, vanilla, leather, spices. Should have decanted before serving. — 7 days ago
I decided to change things up this evening and open a Chardonnay I've been saving. Aromas of apples and zest. Flavor of pears and peaches. Bright finish while still smoothe and creamy.
I paired this with fresh mozzarella, homemade pesto, and bruschetta. — 7 days ago
