Ruby burgundy color. Jammy and fruit forward with berries and some spice. Smoky and a hint of umami. Rhubarb and strawberry. Tart cherry pies. Nice acidity with a hint of wet rubber or something in the palate. A tasty and unique southern red. — a month ago

The Federalist Honest Red Blend 2017

This North Coast red blend offers up a dark nose of smoke, tar, plums, cigar box, vanilla, cedar and an old baseball glove. The palate shows huge black and red fruit, also with plenty of oak spice. BTW, the wine is said to pay homage to Abraham Lincoln. He may have been Honest Abe, but he was not a Federalist. But whatever. You’re not really drinking it for the backstory, are you?

Shays Flat Vineyard Tournon Shiraz 2011

This was the right wine at the right time. I’d previously given up on it and hadn’t had it for some years. But today it shined brightly. Delicate in a iron glove fashion. — a month ago
