The fruit forward taste is savory and satisfying — 2 days ago
After an epic lunch from @joe leatherwood , a few of us got together for a socially-distanced evening hosted by @Keith Fisher to keep the party going.
The pic may be slightly blurry but the label is also blurry on its own!
I agree with @Eric LaMasters in that this one seems to need quite a bit of time to come around. These SQN whites are consistently mesmerizing in their complexity. Checking in at 38% roussanne, 31% petit manseng, 18% chardonnay, 9% viognier and 4% Muscat (what a blend!), it is deeply golden in the glass. Aromatically, it sports crazy dried dragon fruit, banana peel, caramel dipped grilled lemon and sea salt. Amazingly dense and rich on the palate, with a classically waxy profile. Savory popcorn kernel, almond skin, honeysuckle, and quite herbal round out a finish that has a surprising amount of acidity. Love the uniqueness. Thanks @Dan Fitzgerald . — 7 days ago
A suicide soda fountain mix from five lots - Marsanne , Roussanne, Vermentino, Mourvèdre, Grenache, Merlot Rose’, Syrah, and Chardonnay. And maybe more. It’s a murky glowing magenta with wild berry candy notes. Strawberry, blackberry, boysenberry - check. A little pepper kick too. Good use of the rest of the bunch from the harvest is my guess. — 6 days ago

Biltmore Estate Limited Release Barbera 2018. Bright Ruby in color with aromas of mocha, chocolate, cherry, and a hint of pipe tobacco. aged for about 10 months in French and American oak. This is a medium bodied wine featuring tastes of red raspberry, licorice, and earthy notes of pepper￼. Pair with spicy food (gumbo, grilled sausages, pepperoni pizza).
ABV = 13.5% — 8 days ago
I've always been a lager guy, but I'm so glad I tried this Millstream Stout.
5% oatmeal ( yeah, who thought of that?), adds to the heavy taste of this brew. Roasted black malt provides the color. Taste of strong coffee and yet, very smooth. No bitterness what so ever!
Paired this with a cheese burger for lunch, but this brew cries out for steak. — 4 days ago

Cheers to my first wine from Colorado.
Inky in color with a brick rim.
On the nose blueberries, currants, oak, light vanilla, licorice, cloves, herbs, Mediterranean spices, dark chocolates, vinaigrette, earth, herbs and peppercorn. Really nice nose.
Medium plus in body with medium acidity and long legs.
Dry on the palate with blueberries, ripped cherries, red currants, light wood, cooked strawberries, spices, earth, herbs, light vinaigrette, light vegetables and peppercorn.
Nice length on the finish with firm tannins and tangy cranberries.
This is a very tasty Petite Sirah from Colorado. Interesting and nicely balanced. Showing nice structure.
This 8 year old is good by itself or with food. Interesting and engaging.
This Single Vineyard needed time to open up. I gave it 90 minutes to bring out the tannins, which I really enjoyed. After 4 hours of airtime, the tannins get much finer.
I paired it with a charcuterie board of meats and cheeses.
Grapes are grown in the Grand Valley AVA and fermented on their own yeast. Aged in American oak barrels. Unfiltered. Vegan. No sulfites added.
