Currency Creek

Château de Cary Potet

Bourgogne Côte Chalonnaise Pinot Noir 2018

Second try with this one in 2 weeks but now all my senses are back in full effect. Typical youthfull, playful nose with cherry and hay. The palate is well designed with sheer acid, a blooming cherry note all along, some nice width, a tannic wall in mid palate which kicks things up a notch, leaving a slighlty drying effect which lasts until the very end. The finish is fruity. A very lovely, yet simple wine. It's rare these days to find burgundy pinot for that price (equivalent to less than 10 euro in local currency) and that lovely. — 4 months ago

Hofbräu München

Hofbräu Oktoberfest

Whole wheat bread, honey tea, gold dust, ant nests, old currency and simultaneously... fresh rag paper. Weird dichotomy, like crisp bills in a bank envelope, handled by a warthog-woman. You can almost smell the feral collagen, but then: yeast cells, rice paper, dinner rolls, linen, match stick, and sweet, soft leather. She wears a fringe jacket and dates a Haüptling!

Torbreck Vintners

The Laird Shiraz 2012

David T
9.5

The "Laird" is their flagship wine and a bit pricey. I think it's $300 Australian at the tasting room; which is about 28% less in US currency. It's a huge luscious wine with big, bold black cassis. Blackberries, blueberries, black plum, plum, a soft tarry presence, black coffee, mocha, caramel, not overly done vanilla, leather, liquid violets & a touch of lavender, softly understated earth/minerals & some toasted wood shavings. The body and mouthfeel are memorable. The bold structure, balance, big tension and long length are beautiful. The acidity is spot on and the finish is incredibly lush ripe fruit with big sticky tannins. Spent 32 months in oak. This is a 30 year plus wine. Photos are the private tasting room where we tasted and their olive trees as viewed out the front door. Their new Cellar Door was just completed two weeks ago. — 4 years ago

Fiddlehead Brewing Company

Second Fiddle Double IPA

Fine lacing like currency flourishes turn to stylized zy-ghosts. Grapefruit, dried apricot, marshmallow tinged fruit cup, with an emphasis on the pineapple bits Lily, magnolia sweet petrol and papaya aromas. White grapefruit with grill marks, white oak, soft paste of shell and Indian gum beyond the tangerine, ruby red, lemon curd and orange peel. #fiddlehead #beer #doubleipa #citrusbomb #hurricanebeer #pounder #irma #ipa #ale — 3 years ago

Azienda Agricola Valentini

Trebbiano d'Abruzzo 1998

Really complicated on these so suspect days, expose themselves with concepts such as: tradition, terroir, identity without falling into the most sinister rhetoric if not sounds just trite and hypocritical as the counterfeit currency with which even large-scale industries - supported by marketing - pays back its inattentive mass audience riding the wave of the country of origin or protected typicality. A diabolical mechanism this one for which even the most noble ideas probably the right practices and good experiences completed in the scale of centuries to human measure and not on massive industrial scale, are trivialized by sleazy slogan, emptied of meaning to be more or less surreptitious thanks to barbaric persuasion techniques and brain-washing propaganda.
Yet with the Valentini's Trebbiano you may not groped to summarize in words if not by drawing on terms so appropriate to express it. Now concerning this iconic label we've got behind it a local grape variety, a real family and a great wine that collect in a bottle the past and present story of a side of Abruzzo who claims to defeats victories and sacrifices to dominate the abuses (on and of) nature, miseries and splendours of agricultural seasons. Places, people, vision, wines such as Valentini are here to remind us how each bottle stay so proudly standing as non-reproducible beauty and fermented goodness expressing all its artisanal uniqueness and authenticity which are just that suspect to industrial wine production in manufacturing chains on standardized quantities; wines that are all equal to themselves even though wine itself is not much left at the end of the day/cycle. Trebbiano d'Abruzzo Valentini 1998 is what we have to rate right now: rusticity with class; style, purity and glory of a local grape recognized by many admirers from all over the world: act local think global this is another slogan-cliché which in this specific Valentini's wine exemple could sounds a little less false and more effective.
