Whoa! Seriously looked like an orange wine. The only thing that could have given it away was the missing phenolics. Even the acidity was rounded, and there's a good amount of fizziness to mimic microbial activity you'd find so often in natty wines. Cool booze that so smashable - love it!

Taste and smells exactly like you'd expect from reading the write-p on Rogue Ale's website: Weird & wonderful fusion of hazy IPA and sour ale brewed with grapefruit and blood orange, then dry-hopped with Australian hops.

Jongleur Petit Verdot 2015

Jongleur Petit Verdot red table wine, Columbia Valley, Dionysus Vineyards, 292 cases made. Dense purple red, highly extracted pigment. Butter, black currant and spearmint notes in nose initially. Black currant flavor with lots of chewy tannins, with a slightly salty black licorice finish. Allow 30 minutes to open; nuanced, lightly flavored but depth of fruit, good acidity, an undercurrent of anise, fruit and floral character, but well integrated. Moderate skin astringency. — 4 days ago

Delicious! Cheers!

Betz Family Winery

Clos de Betz Red Bordeaux Blend 2008

Drinks more as if it were Cab-dominated with some cassis and tobacco notes (but of course it is mostly Merlot). Tannins are strong but resolved for a suave mouthfeel. Plenty of pepper and candied spice to add to an elegant balance. Held up perfectly to elk loin. — 4 days ago

Richard's Cuvée Willamette Valley Chardonnay 2014

This Chardonnay consistently delivers with its unique petro overlay which is a marker of nose and palette that I enjoy and appreciate when a winemaker goes in this direction. Lovely wine in its character and charm! — 5 days ago

Garagiste

Starfire Columbia Valley Red Blend 2016

A terrific (and cheap) weeknight red. There’s no indication of the blend on the bottle, but it smells and tastes like Bordeaux varieties. Beautiful sweet ripe cherry, dusty earth, baking spices. In the mouth, savory notes take over, with lots of dark minerality and dark cherry notes. Lengthy finish. Not terribly complex or deep, but very tasty and pure. — 9 days ago

Cuvée J Eola-Amity Hills Pinot Noir 2008

A beautiful nose of soft red fruits, some spice, soulful plummy stuff. Very burgundinian but the plushness of US Pinot. On the palate this has great poise. Light but intense this has lovely fresh fruit and some gnarly wild herbs with underlying acidity and good length. Apparently the ‘j’ refers to Jayer cuttings being the source of the Pinot. If so, that would go some way toward explaining why this is so aromatic and balanced. Excellent — 12 days ago

Corliss Estates

Syrah 2015

(Release Spring 2020) The 2015 Corliss Syrah is a seriously good effort from a somewhat challenging vintage for red wines in Washington State. Aged in French oak puncheons (35%) for 26 months prior to bottling, this wine exudes class. On the nose this takes on intense blue and dark fruit aromatics with exotic spices and chocolate that round out this expressive profile. The palate shows a soft, pillowy texture, engaging ripe dark berries, mocha, tar and roasted dates that combine with a good sense of freshness. This is showing marvelously at this stage and will cellar well for another decade or more. Drink 2020-2029- 93 — 7 days ago
