Owen Roe

Yakima Valley Red Wine

Another wine from our Friday night gathering we opened the 2012 Owen Roe Red Wine a Bordeaux land of 36% Merlot, 35% Cabernet Franc, 37% Cabernet Sauvignon and 2% Malbec.

On the nose there was dark fruit, black cherry, blackberry, black currant, dark chocolate, dried herbs, spice and a good earthy component.

On the palate was dark cherry, blackberry, green bell pepper, black currant, violets, a touch of sweetness and some earth.

This wine is full bodied with medium + acidity and medium + sandpaper tannins that lead into a long dark fruit finish. The weekend is upon us so enjoy your wine and please be safe. Nostrovia! 🍷🍷🍷🍷

Chiles Canyon Vineyards Zinfandel 2015

Just wowza: recall drinking this stuff back in mid-90s and it seems like they are one of the few classic Zins still cranking out outstandingly priced vino... this stuff was dense & fairly hi octane - shy nose until well over hour of decant, then strutted sublime full spectrum red fruit culminating in a sweet spiced raspberry / rhubarb pie w/vanillin accents. Suave viscous saturated extracted but never cloying, absolute stunning execution w/very long life ahead. — 21 days ago

Mmmm....better. 1999 was a meh vintage to most critics. I find it has evolved to better things with this much time in bottle.

The nose reveals, ruby and candied; blackberries, black cherries, black plum skin, black raspberries, raspberries, poached cherries & strawberries. Touch cooked green bell pepper, mixed berry licorice, anise to black licorice, used leather, saddle-wood to cedar, dark, moist, black earth, limestone, stones, graphite, vanilla, cinnamon stick, clove, nutmeg and dark spice, coffee, dark chocolate with fresh & withering, dark, red, blue and purple flowers.

The body is just full. The tannins are soft, round, chewy and tarry. The structure, tension, length and balance are pretty good for 99. ruby and candied; blackberries, black cherries, black plum skin, black raspberries, raspberries, poached cherries & strawberries. more cooked green bell pepper on the palate, mixed berry licorice, anise to black licorice, used leather, saddle-wood to cedar, dark, moist, black earth, limestone, stones, graphite, vanilla, cinnamon stick, clove, nutmeg and dark spice, coffee, dark chocolate with fresh & withering, dark, red, blue and purple flowers. The acidy is nice. The finish is elegant, well balanced but, not as rich as other good vintages Palmer. It is spicy and persists minutes on the palate.

Photos of; Chateau Palmer, their barrel room, a photo of their vineyard soil structure-if you didn’t know where all that earthiness comes from, a picture is worth a thousand words and their tasting room.

Den Hoed

Wallula Vineyard Marie's View Red Blend 2011

Green pepper, slate, hazelnut. What a wicked nose!
I would associate this with South American, not a Washington state wine.
Hefty body, super viscous, mint, gravel, licorice. White pepper comes with every exhale, and the wood is balanced well with the acid. An really nice wine.

Green Man Brewery

ESB Special Amber Ale

Raspberry tinted to near-mahogany. Sported a loose, white, fast fading, jellyfish-markings residue, and shrinking lace spots. Raspberry-apricot-peach marmalade nose, with hatch chili notes. Salted watermelon, tight sound raspberry and sour soft cherry tartness, quinine; tartaric citrus. Light and bright here without excessive pucker. Super session sour for the hot boat days. #greenmanbrewing #NCbeer #beer #biere #biere #birra #berlinerweisse #tartberry #tartbeer #sourbeer #sessionsour — 6 days ago
