Very full and well-balanced — a month ago
Snow White frosting over vodka-cran colored beer with cirrus drifts. Cartoon stubble lacing. Raspberry, blackberry, grape-y with blood orange, dried orange, red grapefruit, hibiscus and citrus crowd. Lovely entry, reminiscent of bandol rose, with a suggestion of pink lemonade, bay, orange pith, lemongrass, and cardamom. Dry and satisfying in all respects. Carrots and cran-mint come to mind. Festive and bright!! #dogfishhead #dogfishheadbrewing #dogfishheadsixtyone #beer #bier #biere #birra #ale #ipa #syrahipa #continuallyhopped #hops — 3 days ago

Really interesting. The palate shows strong flavors of passionfruit, papaya, and red licorice. The fruit is very forward though the wine is dry.
The palate and nose are foxy.
Very distinctive. I wouldn't want much. — 17 days ago
This is now a vintage red table wine, the “non-vintage” and “proprietary” elements in the label are gone. This was the only Arizona wine available at the local Trader Joe’s, so relatively cheap. But how does it rate? Brick red, light to moderate pigment extraction. Cherry and black currant notes in nose. Soft, ripe red fruit flavors, primarily cherry and raspberry, slightly tart finish. Later, strawberry jam and plum flavors emerge. Not bad for a basic red table wine, great value. A good reminder here: You never go wrong drinking local. — 4 days ago
Road tar, smoked black fruits, green olive, and loads of meaty, gamey notes emerge from the 2016 Northern Blend, which is 95% Syrah and 5% Viognier that was co-fermented and aged in used barrels. This big, sexy, exotic effort just screams Syrah and is full-bodied, has terrific depth of fruit, polished tannins, and just overflowing amounts of character and charm. Drink it any time over the coming decade or so.
Jebs review, can’t disagree. Great for $30.00 — 4 days ago
Long week. I’ve been saving this bottle and tonight is the night! Red blends are my favorite and this one does not disappoint. — 22 days ago
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 — 20 days ago
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.
24 Hour Update: Palate has picked up an awesome, and zingy, ripe strawberry note, like really good! — 6 days ago
