Five Boroughs Brewing Co

Make Good Decisions Double Dry Hopped Double IPA

Today is international beer day. I haven't been exploring my beers recently but if ever there were a day to do so, today seems appropriate.

This beer is a sexy, fruity, tropical with pineapple and papaya, yet bone dry, complex New England style double dry hopped double IPA. Make good decisions indeed. 👏🙌🎉 ... 🙈🙉🙊

Mission Hills

Five Vineyards Pinot Noir 2015

9.1

We enjoyed the 2016 but loved the 2015 Five Vineyards Pinot Noir from Mission Hill. The label says, “Our Pinot Noir has lifted aromatics of strawberry, anise, and mint with earthy tones of toasted almonds.” I agree. This 2015 is very approachable, smoothly layered with delightfully long legs. Not many wines are awarded the Mrs A coveted seal of approval as this one. She rates this Okanagan as one of the best.

Five Star Cellars

Quinque Astrum SuperTuscan Blend 2013

Awful picture but really nice blend out of Washington. Had a glass right when opened but decanted another bottle for about and 1.5hrs and made quite the difference. Bright nose of fresh red fruit. Strong cherry, ripe strawberry, dried fig and vanilla notes. Medium acidity with a slight tannic finish helped elevate the crisp texture of the wine. Blend of Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Merlot. Great for the money. Served with a bone in filet with seared foie gras — 24 days ago

Not familiar with this wine. Quilceda Creek and Andrew Will are my go to Wines for Bordeaux blends out of Washington. I’ll keep an eye out for these.

Hall Wines

Eighteen Seventy-Three Cabernet Sauvignon 2014

Cab bomb. Plenty of fruit forward in the palate. Soft enough tannins and not an oak overload to make this a very nice wine. Definitely a super long finish. — 16 days ago

Five Star Cellars

Stellar Red Blend 2009

Was not familiar with Five Star Cellars’ work until yesterday, but after last nights successful Super Tuscan blend we decided to try the Boudreaux blend tonight. Really enjoyed this wine. Very bold red fruit, leather, smoked sea salt? and herbal notes on the nose. Lots of cedar wood, bergamot tea, 80%+ dark cocoa powder, baking spices particularly cardamom stood out to me. The right amount of spice on the palate. Velvety tannins. Really left you wanting more of this wine. Impressed with the quality of the wines they are producing around that $30-50 price retail. Apparently this 09 won gold medal at the 2015 Walla Walla Wine Competition. Looking forward to trying their Syrah next. — 23 days ago
