Pape Star Central Coast Red Rhone Blend 2016

A nice dark cherry red color with a wide brim. The nose opens up with some nice spice and green earth. Plenty of funk and fun on display here. Dense moss and forest woodland screams before the bright red fruits show up to play. The floral aromatics really set this one off.

45/30/25 of Grenache, Mourvèdre, and Syrah, this is a Central Coast take on Chateauneuf du Pape and baby, it works. It’s a gentle onslaught of goodness. Mounds and mounds of bright, fresh fruits come in waves. Wild strawberry, red cherry, and raspberry. A hint of dark chocolate with menthol and more greenery. It seems like people don’t know how good these are and that’s a crying shame. Beautiful wine and so hard to beat.

Exitus

Dark Red Blend 2018

This is a very good wine! I almost had buyers remorse as I didn’t read some of the reviews on here before buying. Well, what’s ya know; the reviews must have been on a bad day as this is a very good red blend right out of the bottle. And it’s excellent for just drinking or with food. Medium bodied with a nice, smooth mouthfeel and mild tannins. More berries than fruit on the palate and very smooth. The bourbon barrel aging is barely discernible and actually imparts a very slight sweet taste that enhances rather than distracts. Definitely a bargain at a BOGO sale. — 4 days ago

Domaine du Coulet (Matthieu Barret)

et La Banniere... Crozes-Hermitage Syrah

Brooding and warming; perfect for winding down after a day in the snow. Inky and dark, with wild, brambly blackberry, black raspberry jam, baked plum, wilted violet petals, and savory, umami notes of white pepper, Kalamata olive, bay leaf, hoisin sauce, star anise, fireplace, and smoked brisket. Subtle coffee bean and bittersweet dark chocolate notes show up on the finish. Velvet-smooth with briny acidity. Immensely satisfying winter wine. — 8 days ago

Dark Horse Distillery

Special Release Barrel Strength Rye Whiskey

Batch prior to the January 2016 name change to Union Horse. Citrus notes and a spicy finish. A little hot on its own, but it makes a great cocktail (tonight was a Red Hook - riff on a Manhattan). — 13 days ago
