Deepest red amber echoes eponymously, chaos ensuing in its lofty-top curtain drop of ocean foam encroaching and Cyprus knee lacing. Pine nettle, maple flower, bruised banana and overripe pineapple. Cinnamon toast and caramelizing Vidalia onion aromas. There is an ocean brine and orange blossom back breeze. Heavier mouthfeel accents tastes of orange-honey, marmalade, resinous malts, bay leaf, oregano and nutmeg leading to grapefruit and kumquat. Pleasantly aggressive hops applied with sage leaves in this double ipa. #sixpointbrewery #brooklynbeer #nybeer #newyorkbeer #resin #sixpointresin #resiniipa #IIPA #doubleipa #dipa #indiapaleale #beer #bier #biere #birra #cerveza #cerveja #ale #ipa — 8 days ago

Super fun. It’s like a drink for the multitaskers: you can get all the joy of whisky and LaCroix but in one drink and it helps save bees. Oh and it tastes good and refreshes while intoxicating. If it were a person it would be that hip friend who does all the sustainable things but not as performance and still accepts me even if I fuck up and use paper towels occasionally. That friend will still be friendly and refreshing. I don’t know for sure Siponey would accept me but I like the line this can walks. — a month ago
Wine Enthusiast lavished this with 97 pts, and personally, I beg to differ...
As with this varietal, complexity of flavors and perfume come along for the ride. The initial experience on the nose is predominantly notes of Yuzu and tangerine peel. Palate is piercing and close to gunpowder dry. It’s tense and nervy, with a hint of salinity. From a style perspective, if you enjoy CB, this is for you. For me, this is searing, and needs fatty foods to help it relax. — a day ago

I hope everyone had a great weekend? It was beautiful here in the Chicagoland area and it looks like fall is fast approaching. Tonight i have opened the 2019 McBride Sisters Collection Sauvignon Blanc from Marlborough, New Zealand.
On the nose there is peach, lime, grapefruit, nectarine, white flowers and minerality.
On the palate there is lime, nectarine, white peach, grapefruit, herbs, white flowers, lemongrass and a nice minerality.
This wine is medium bodied that has a clean fresh mouthfeel and medium + acidity that leads into a long crisp citrus finish. Lets all have a great week and look forward to a wonderful new weekend ahead. Please be healthy and safe. Nostrovia! 🥂🥂🥂🥂 — 3 hours ago
I purchase Clonakilla Riesling most years along with their stellar Shiraz Viognier, their Syrah and sometimes their Viognier. Proven to age slowly this Riesling had white florals and Talc on the nose with a herbal note and no Kerosene. Honey and Lime on the palate with reduced acidity compared to its youth. A very good aged Riesling reaching its maturity and good QPR. Wines like this prove the worth of having a good cellar. See many previous notes from older vintages. — 6 days ago
