Uncontainable Hagata Vineyard Rosé of Cinsault 2021

Reliably good summer rose, at an okay price point — 15 days ago

Societe Brewing Company

Wave of the Future

Super cool can graphics from Societe and their Wave Of The Future ipa. 16oz can. 7.2% ABV. West-Coast styled ipa but that new WC style that’s super smooth…like ipa lite (lighter than a solid session ipa). Good but not great. — 3 months ago

Samsara Wine Co.

Santa Barbara County Syrah 2017

I’ve had Samsara Syrah before and was looking forward to a perfumed nose of violets and deep flavors of blueberries and blackberries backed up by muscular tannins. This bottle was different. Faint nose of something red, then mouthfuls of heavy flavor—tannic, yes, but also brambly and spicy. Reminded me of a California Zin/Syrah hybrid. Needed time to breathe and mellow. Very nice food wine to pair with beef. Had the 2017 vintage with steak tartare and boeuf bourguignon at Little Frenchie in Coronado, San Diego, CA. — 3 months ago

Second Chance Beer Co.

Tabula Rasa Porter

Tied with the AleSmith Speedway Stout as my fave SD County dark beer. 12oz (used to be 16oz…grrr) can. 6.2% ABV. Minor detail…4x GABF gold medal winner. 9.3 can. 9.4 draft. — 6 months ago

Party Tricks

Super-clean for a West-Coast styled ipa. Zero bite. Great brewery but expected more. An excellent ipa choice for those afraid of ipa however. 16oz can (in a 6-pack format!) and 6.8% abv. — 4 months ago
