Knob Hall Winery

Reserve Cuvée Josephine Merlot Blend 2014

The form factor yields a more mature and balanced offering than that of the N 39. Would not be disappointed having this as a budget wine at a restaurant – stays in its lane and has no harsh/offputting elements. It’s main drawback is it’s lack of nuance and sophistication — 5 days ago

Bay Rosé Blend

Warm spring evening @thesandlot Girls night around the picnic table. Hard to get the aroma from a can but it’s very floral. Then hits you with fizz like pop. Bright, light, dry. Nice buzz. Bay Rosé all the way. All right Baltimore. #thesandlot #baltimoresummer — a month ago

Lolita Belgian Style Wild Ale 2015

Key Lime Pie and Lolita? Hard slap of apple cider riding high on waves of apricot and cinnamon stick that is cheating with apple in Pickleville. Asian spices shimmer alongside. Real tart briny lime plays nice with Old Key Lime House-made pie. Bing cherry bringing the cringe from the fringes to the face cave! Sugar-olive dichotomies. The push and pull cancellations have me imagining pickled persimmon existences, dried, spiced Asian plum, banana pepper, potpourri woods, candied ginger, and bite after bite the palatal assault assuaged by lime and sugar and graham cracker. Bittersweet tang for the twang thang. — 7 days ago

Reserve Frederick County Chardonnay 2016

One of two bottles purchased, this really reveals quality soil, sunshine, and cellar craftsmanship. Wonderful and sophisticated balance of oak and fruit acidity, European distinction with mid-atlantic character/charm. — 19 days ago

Camp Clementine

Lemon yellow in color, very good clarity, decent head on pour but carbonation quickly recedes. Not much in the nose initially. Citrus and passion fruit flavors with tactile acidity - bubbles plus citric, malic. Apple flavors are threshold level at best; this is clementine and passion fruit forward. Refreshing with good alcohol and acidity balance, but I miss that apple cider flavor profile that should be there underneath. Definitely worth a try though — 6 days ago

Home Vineyard Petillant Naturel Albariño 2017

About 125ml lost from a Pet Nat doing what a Pet Nat does. The nose is a little interesting. Refried beans and Meyer lemon. Some weediness. Entry however is all lemon and even a bit of plantain and some herb. Middle and finish bitters out a bit. Bubbles make it interesting but don't overdo it. Pleasant crisp aftertaste. This is a poolside pounder! — 25 days ago

Not sure what surprised me more...seeing a PetNat of Albariño from Maryland, or that I kept thinking about this wine long after I had left! I can still smell the fresh squeezed mango and guava in the glass. Similar to the other PetNat on the table, some weediness/herbs with a savory sea salt finish. This was clean, fruit forward and surprisingly delicious!

Purchased this because I was nudged by @H.B Treadway, and all the ratings hype.
Citrus and zesty nose. On the palate, it certainly reminds me of it’s French counterpart. Not sure if this wine sees oak - it’s not perceptible. Stones and rocks combine with crisp white fruits. It’s a well made wine, but not in the style that we prefer. Jayson SB is a similar price, but is far better (more tropical and open-knit). If you like your SB’’s taught, and tilting to the dry side, this may be for you.

Actually, I need to correct my text. Jayson is $8 more, and as a percentage, it’s a big difference. I prefer to spend the $23 on Jayson, and consume what I consider to be a polished SB.
