La Vina Winery

New Mexico Dolcetto 2015

I did a wine tasting at La Vina, trying 4 whites and 8 reds. The Dolcetto was the best of the reds (the sav blanc being the best of the whites). The nose is sage, cedar, menthol, and a bit of charred beef. The palate features licorice, spice, leather, menthol, and dark fruit. The finish is moderate acid and medium-minus tannins. This light-bodied red has a real old world sense to it. I can image conquistadors emerging from the shimmering desert and drinking this stuff out of clay mugs at a Spanish mission. Unsolicited advice to the winery - you have some good wines, some OK wines, and some that are not good at all. More than a dozen varietals on the same 24 acres makes no sense. Pick the 3 or 4 that do the best for your terroir and stick with those. Nice job on the Dolcetto. — a month ago

Brut American Sparkling White Blend

So nice! Acidic and perfectly bubbly. Dry but not so dry to be too flavorless. — a month ago

Methode Champenoise Rosé Blend

Fresh smell of cantaloupe and bright grapes. Small, delicate bubbles. Crisp, green apple hits first, followed by sweet melon and lychee. And yet, no too sweet! So good! — 19 days ago

Salinity Now!

Kind of aspiring to be a version of Cantillon’s Oude Kriek, this is a nice gose-style beer finished with raspberries and sea salt. A great start to a few days by Lake Winnepesaukee. — 12 days ago

Tanzen Dame Blue Cap Trocken Edelzwicker Riesling 2016

If you can’t handle a touch of brett, avoid this. But for those who can...here’s a wild sour ale, trapped in a bottle of Riesling- heavy Edelzwicker. The nose is pure, pretty, floral Riesling, and the sour/spicy thing kicks in on the palate in a masterful and balanced way that gives the impression of being a studied, deliberate choice in the cellar. The brett carries through into the long, savory finish in a thirst-quenching manner (again, much like sour ale). This wine demands all your attention, so don’t pull it out for casual quaffing, chill it too hard or serve it in anything less than great glassware. Another singular and challenging wine from the most interesting growers in the FLX. — 2 days ago
