Reserve Lodi Field Blend 2018

Nose of blueberry and raspberry, with a hint of saddle. Really smooth with grippy tannins, and the zin and merlot come through clearly. Very light...lighter than we thought it would be. Nice this!! — a month ago

Pearly Dewdrops Fruit Cider 2020

Plum jerkum!!! So much unfiltered stone fruit in here. Get some next time you’re in Red Hook! Reminds of Cab Franc, or maybe @Sam Shepard’s Cab Franc-inflected piss after a few glasses. — a year ago

The Red Hook Winery

Twenty One Twenty Four Reserve Red Blend 2010

Time for #MerlotThursday! and here is a nice surprise. A very good Merlot/ Cabernet Sauvignon blend from Brooklyn, NY.

Medium plus in body with medium plus acidity and nice legs.

Dry on the palate with red and black fruits, earth, chocolates, vanilla,, licorice, cedar, tobacco, herbs, spices and black pepper.

Nice length on the finish with soft tannins and tangy pomegranates.

This 9 year old is very enjoyable, soft and smooth. Good by itself or with food.

I paired it with a charcuterie board of meats and cheeses.

Grapes are grown in long Island. Made by Robert Foley. Thank you D.J. for sharing.

13.1% alcohol by volume.

91 points.

Hook & Ladder

Estate Bottled Los Amigos Ranch Cabernet Sauvignon 2015

Full confession. . . I’ve driven by this winery in past trips to Sonoma and failed to enter because of the name. But when I saw this bottle on winespies I decided to try. And. . . I wish I had stopped at the winery in prior visits. This 2015 drinks smoothly with soft, medium tannins. A nose that brings cherries and over ripe strawberries to the front with a small spice hint. Palate has the slight earth/chalk tones along with the fruit. A bottle that pairs well with simple homemade pizza or could go with something more elegant. Glad I have more bottles for the future. — a year ago
