Smooth, perfect for making rye Manhattans. One of my favorite small batch whiskeys. It is produced at National Historic site in the Hudson Valley. — 2 months ago
Nose: peanuts! Balanced sweetness (6/10). Complex spice through the middle. More forward complexity. — 5 months ago
This bouquet is straight up raw honey.
Apricots, subtle hints of fresh ginger, limestone mineral bouquet.
Fruit-forward. Slightly puckerish, tartness.
Smooth mouthfeel. Silk and luxurious.
Not all wine brings up such strong images while I drink it. This one absolutely does. I think of Greece and the sea and turquoise and limestone and old architecture. I think of the respite of love and the adventure of life.
~$20 at Astor Wine & Spirits.

Voted best Riesling in 2018 by Wine & Spirits magazine. Lovely! It is smooth and crisp with high acidity. — 2 months ago
The 2010 Petrus has an extraordinary bouquet, ineffably complex with brambly red fruit, sous-bois, dried blood and wild mint aromas that unfurl magically from the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannins, fleshy and generous, yet amazingly controlled with such tension and grace on the silky smooth finish. This is a fantastic Petrus, one of the greatest in recent years. Tasted from an ex-château bottle at the BI Wines & Spirits 10-Year On tasting. (Neal Martin, Vinous, April 2020)

Deep ruby red color. Spirits forward nose with a hint of berries. Very dry, full bodied. Initially very intense pepper with subtle fruit. Smooth finish. Costco $14. Would buy again. A great syrah. — 2 months ago

Bold!! Great bottle of a unique and memorable wine. The bourbon barrel aging provided a layer of sweet smooth hints of spirits. Very enjoyable. — 10 months ago
Barbera + Dolcetto blend. Definitely the acidity of the Barbera, but softens the tannins of the Dolcetto. Medium bodied, pretty smooth with leather, good fruit, currants, violets. From Amaro Spirits & Wines. — 2 years ago
