One of the finest ipa’s available. Smelling it, you might think Seville Oranges, but this is no marmalade. It’s resinous, bitter, but not over the top. You always want more.
Paired with spicy coconut shrimp, ya!

Blend of 80% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc, 4% Petit Verdot & 2% Malbec, deep Ruby with aromas of berry fruits with spice, herb and earthy notes. On the palate flavors of blackberry, ripe cherry and blueberry with currants, cigar box spice, cedar, floral herbs and earthy notes. Meaty fine tannins, long finish, ending with fruit, spice, earth and cedar notes. Very Nice! — 8 days ago
12.5%. At 40bucks a bargain these days. Rough around the edges but otherwise a great wine with dark cherry notes, lime, back palate kaffir lime, tart, hint cigar box and a touch of herbs (my guess is some whole cluster), quite dark. I would suggest drink now with a decant. Quite smooth after some time (I hate this word). — 7 days ago
My current favorite Malbec. Balanced with a good finish. Buy regularly. — a month ago
N: tobacco, cigar box, cherries,very earthy.
P: Bright in your mouth, In the Grrassl Cru, the nose is sweeter but the tannins roar up to envelop your palate. A more interesting ride indeed..
We drank with homemade duxelle pasta w lemon, garlic, butter, lemon juice, parsley. Yum.
Overall, a very woody sweet Barolo, great food wine. — 14 days ago
Dusty cherry and dense Christmas pudding nose features baked blueberry and dried red currants with blue spruce, Connecticut cigar wrap, sunflower, marigold and tea. There is ample black pepper, cinnamon, nutmeg and lacquered oak. Silky smooth and incredibly well-integrated layers of aforementioned spices with a surprisingly green tobacco note. Cedar and dried blackberry atop baked raspberry and peppercorn tart. Simply delicious and unwaveringly structured.

Very solid inexpensive Left Banker. 50/50 Cab Merlot. Nose has rich plummy fruit, warm gravel, a little cigar box, a little twiggy underbrush. In the mouth it’s full but tight. Zingy acids for a 14.5 wine. A fair amount of tannin. Flavors feature loads of gravelly earth and bright cherry/berry fruit in a bone-dry package. Nice job! — 10 days ago
