The Beautiful Syrah 2012

Dark inky color with a short brick rim.

Great nose of black plums, black currants, oak, cloves, earth, barnyard, vanilla, tobacco, dark coffee, chocolates, peppercorn, spices, light vegetables and pencil lead.

Full bodied and bold with medium acidity and long legs.

Dry and extremely fruity on the palate with black currants, plums, cooked cherries, oak, vanilla, licorice, cloves, herbs, spices, dark chocolates, coffee, leather, earth, light vegetables, pencil lead and peppercorn.

Long finish with fine tannins and tangy raspberries.

This is a great Syrah from Washington State. Well balanced and fruit forward with mild complexity and a great mouthfeel.

Tangy, beautiful, spicy and delicious. Long coffee finish that lasts for a while.

This 7 year old is a great sipping wine, to have by the porch.

Good right out of the bottle and better as it opens up. Drinking very nicely now, and will be good in the next 10 years. Teeth staining color, so not so good for a first date 😃

Thank you Scott for sharing this gorgeous wine with me.

Bonny Doon Vineyard

Vin Gris De Cigare Rosé Grenache Blend 2016

Nose has dried raspberry, fresh raspberry, orange peel, watermelon rind, (light) savory green herbs and (light) candle wax.

Palate has dried strawberry, dried orange zest, red currant juice, rose petals and dry soil.

It's always a treat to drink rosé away from current release, the flavors change slightly and the acidity generally mellows; This is how we really enjoy them, just need patience.

2016 Blend: 49% Grenache, 19% Grenache Blanc, 13% Mourvedre, 12% Carignane, 4% Cinsault & 3% Rousanne.

Parish Brewing Company

Ghost In The Machine Imperial IPA

Pure, white grapefruit juice color, with whipped-to-peaks egg white top that sticks for sheet lacing of anatomical figure silhouettes. Bright orange, sweet grapefruit and peach blossom scents. Magnolia, jasmine and daisy perfumes. Perfectly balanced mouthfeel delivers grapefruit-creamsicle with bits of lemon peel in a marmalade pudding entry. This beauty turns on lime and juicy grapefruit with a dash of white pepper, lemon oil, tangerine, and an awesome burst of vivacious and near-effervescent lemon tart and grapefruit soda. Ultimately holds true to beer with notes of barley, touch of malt, hop textures, lemongrass and fresh oregano. Really sexy ipa here, might improve with a little bottle rest too! Will revisit, if still available. #parishbrewing #parishbrewingco #ghostinthemachine #ghostinthemachinedipa #Labeer #beer #biere #birra #bier #ale #paleale #dankbeer #indiapaleale #ipa #dipa #doubleipa #broussardla #hops #abv — 14 days ago

Sine Qua Non

To The Rescue California Grenache

The 2005 ‘To The Rescue’ Grenache is a thrilling, highly novel new world dessert wine that is amongst the best of its kind that I have sampled. Aromatically, the wine immediately unveils copious red rose petals and menthol tones that combine with the intense red fruits and blood orange zest accents that all take their shape in the glass. Viscous and vibrant, with marvelous length, suggestions of red raspberry cordial, pipe tobacco and red cherry candy all thrive together on the mouth. The tension that runs through the core of the wine really impresses here. Fantastic now, this exemplary dessert wine will provide drinking enjoyment for at least another ten years.

Free State Brewing

Old Backus Barleywine Ale


Muddy, ruddied and cloudy with an active head bubbling up from the belly. Fine pate for a barley; tall and well informed. Raisin, brown sugar and date commingle with brown banana and baked peach smells, fruitcake-box, nepenthe, and fig. The palate is chocolate and mocha with creamy coffee turning clove and nutmeg, dark brown sugar swirled with treacle, cinnamon, touches of candied mint ginger and maple sugar. #barleywine #freestate #freestatebrewing #lfk #lawrencekansas #oldbackus #oldbackusbarleywineale #ale #beer #bier #biere #birra #abv #2016beer

Terrapin Beer Co.

Hopsecutioner India Pale Ale

Almost exclusively, sweet citrus notes of grapefruit, Meyer lemon and key lime but malty too with drops of caramel and honey, and dinner rolls with truffle honey and marmalade. Malt continues on the palate, with less sweetness overall, but exhibiting tangerine, blood orange and grilled lemon instead. Sensory overload in a good way!! — a month ago

Toppling Goliath Brewing Company

King Sue Double India Pale Ale

Hazy look of grapefruit with a few grenadine drops, and thick white crown that sits the throne like foam. Ladybug lacing. Sweet grapefruit, tangerine and lemon marmalade smells laced in leek, and green onion filaments; a healthy navel orange and persimmon. Buttered rum creaminess, turns pale with pith of grapefruit and Meyer lemon, then twists in a hint of pepper, lime peel and nutmeg pudding. The central theme is creamy orange, but porcupines with darts of intense citrus. Dangerously poised and hard to wrap your arms around. #topplinggoliath #fieldmuseum #topplinggoliathbrewingco #kingsue #kingsuedipa #ipa #doubleipa #dipa #beer #bier #biere #birra #iabeer #iowabeer #decorahia # — 12 days ago

California Mourvedre 2016

Shay A
9.6

November’s 4th Friday was a big hit. There is no way I’ll be able to upload all the wines, nor give them the reviews they deserve, but there were a few worthy of mentioning!

The best Mourvèdre I’ve ever had. Spell binding stuff. Seductive like aromatics of sweet and gummy blue and black fruits wrapped in clove and sandalwood. Lighter on the palate than Andremily’s Syrah. Crunchy blueberries, puréed blackberries, sweet smoke, baking spices and graphite. Can only imagine how good this will be in a few years. Thanks
