Grand Gestures Viognier 2020

Growing on men with each sip tbh. The (pleasing) salinity overwhelms the fruit for me in the end, though — 7 days ago

Reserve Wilmeth Vineyard Dolcetto 2018

Good wine, really enjoyed it. Balanced and full bodied, but light enough to drink when hot outside. Not sweet or dry. Would have and buy again. — 25 days ago

Mountain Plains Monticello Merlot

So rich and full bodied — so Cali of Matthieu! Rich tannins close out the dark berry compote acid energy. 1st meal with brisket and 2nd with Texas keto chili. Cheers! — a day ago

Sing Sweet Things ... Southold Farm & Cellar 2019 Albariño Texas Hill Country
Fruity slightly skunky nose, -- unexpected flinty, salty complex sour taste. Went really well with my mushroom quiche and also with dinner partner's escarole and beans. The acidity really sliced through these savory dishes.

Fingers Crossed White Rhone Blend 2017

9.5

Curiousity finally got the best of me. A measley 25 cases of this inaugural wine was made. The blend is 73% roussanne and 27% Viognier. Opened alongside a 2014 SQN Lightmotif. Now known as Fingers Crossed, this is a must for those who enjoy the SQN style.

The fact that this is over a quarter Viognier is shocking. Seems like hardly any! This wine is amazingly bright and fresh while sporting plenty of richness and depth. The SQN Lightmotif had so much savory character to it like salted popcorn kernel, so the differences were very fun to diagnose (yet the style between the two has many similarities). Oily and honeyed mango, dragonfruit, and some caramel-lemon cream. There is a kiss of sweetness in the mid palate which is really unique. I’m hard pressed to see this being a wine that gets better...likely just somewhat different. Great first vintage!

@Mike R : Their inaugural release set didn’t have the white included, only the reds, as production was so small. It (and the rosé) were sold first come first serve. Last year’s release set included the white, so I assume moving forward it will always be included. I do think this will hang around for a while, but the freshness will fade, and I think that is its best quality.

Huss Brewing Company

CenPho Local Citrus IPA

Orange with a hint of brown, slightly hazy, medium head on pour. Good orange and grapefruit flavor that drifts off into piney hop IPA land, with a citrus zest finish with moderate hop bitterness. Given the tradition of citrus growing in the (central) Phoenix (or CenPho) area, the brewers do capture something authentic, “zesty, fruity, local pride” as it states on the bottom border of the can. It even looks like they forage their citrus from the backyards of locals. Tasty stuff, admirably imagined and crafted. Not a classic IPA style but who cares? 🌵🍋🍊🍺🌅 Gonna be another scorcher, drink up — 3 days ago
