Imperial Pumking Ale

Surprisingly light colored head that sprung up like a ghost and then shot back down to a smoky whisper. Rum notes with caramel cream in the lead; spun sugar, cinnamon and clove with yogurt pretzel and honeyed tea. Spicy entry boasts sweetness but not overwhelming. Pumpkin oil, vanilla, oaky caramel, cinnamon and bitter note that suggests charred pecan, and peppercorns. This beer is good because it doesn’t stay sweet throughout and instantly congers the autumnal spirit. It doesn’t get too artificial, borrowing most of its flavors from barrel. #pumpkin #pumpkinbeer #ale #SouthernTier #imperialpumpkin #pumking #beer #seasonalbeer #oakaged #halloween #alehallows — 20 days ago

Domaine Saint-Damien

Les Souteyrades Gigondas Red Rhone Blend 2015

Charred cherry. Low acidity. Soft . Was really liking this as a post dinner sipper. Opened up best after two hours to reveal a bit of pepper and earth. — 11 days ago

Moulin de la Gardette

La Cuvée Tradition Gigondas Red Rhone Blend 2015

Perennial favorite producer. The ‘15 rivals the ‘12 in structure and layered complexity. No fruit bomb, this is exactly how we like our southern rhônes. Opening is evocative with blueberry/cherry and graphite. Excellent tannic undergirding, only marred by a lackluster finish. More of this, please. — 16 days ago

Elkton Oregon White Pinot Noir 2015

White pinot noir - such a rare find, and a delicious one. A bit more tannin than most whites, without any butter or oak. Good stuff. — 11 days ago

I never expected a bottle costing ~$20.00 CAD to be this good. This approachable Southern Rhône Grenache punches well above its price. Presenting plum and blackberry aromas this full body yet spry blend excites a zesty turn on the palate with its crisply dry concentrate of blackberry and currant flavors. Long in finish with hints of lavender and chalk this wine will please. 14% alc/vol — 13 days ago

La Pialade de Rayas

Côtes du Rhône Grenache Blend 2012

Super bright and enjoyable. Might be considered a 3rd label of Rayas, though thankfully it is produced at the Chateau...and it shows. — 6 days ago

Domaine le Sang des Cailloux

Vacqueyras Rouge Red Rhône Blend 2012

Oh yummy wine I want to consume with girlfriends late at night. It is a grape jam sandwich on EXQUISITE white bread (homemade by me) on a beautiful table set with lilacs and licorice candies. This is light yet it has a black crushed velvet backdrop. Simple. But also really interesting. When I drink this I close my eyes and see candied licorice and vanilla beans and black grapes. — 13 days ago

Domaine du Vieux Télégraphe

Télégramme Châteauneuf-du-Pape Red Rhone Blend

Oh hell complex and juicy and fruity as f. Undercurrents of a mineral base. Picture those rocks that are mostly almost black but there is a speckle or so of white and the mineral nature and it ballasts cocky-ass raspberries like this wine has an attitude. So damn good hope my (not so genius) tasting of a half bottle holds up. One last genius-ish thought: picture a newsies boy, cap and all doing a heel click while a Brooklyn winemaker toasts an old school french winemaker and that is your prettiness. I’ll pour it all into my Zalto. — 8 days ago
