Twin Suns Reserve Zinfandel 2019

Shira Wine Company Twin Suns Reserve Zinfandel 2019, Santa Ynez Valley, California


Dark ruby in color with a wide reddish rim.

Fruity nose of blackberries, black currants, sweet cherries, chocolates, tobacco, light oak, spices, licorice, peppercorn and coffee.

Medium plus in body with medium acidity and fat legs.

Dry and very fruity on the palate with black cherries, plums, black currants, oak, coffee, vanilla, spices, chocolates, tobacco, herbs and peppercorn.

Nice length on the spicy finish, with soft tannins and tangy raspberries.

This is a very tasty Zinfandel from Santa Ynez Valley. A good sipping wine. Nicely balanced with a soft mouthfeel.

Good right out of the bottle, and gets better after an hour.

Alcohol is there, but not as apparent as I expected it to be. Spicy and easy drinking.

Will be interesting to try it again in 3 years.

Aged for 15 months in (25% new) French oak barrels. Kosher and not Mevushal.

15% alcohol by volume.

90 points.

Matanzas Creek Winery

Sonoma Valley Merlot 1989


Wow what an old timer wine showing beautifully right off the bat. Beautiful plummy earthy rich nose into balanced still lively palate and firm texture into a harmonious and long finish. Pleasure to drink. A surprise for a 32 year old but probably from the glory days of this vineyard and varietal? Perfect for the leftover cheese ML brought weeks ago, Formaggio’s Twin Farm Goat Tomme Goats Milk from West Cornwall VT. Half bottle downed, unusual for me. Well, after three days of DE beer (quite good) and dinners alone! — 6 months ago

Sauvignon Blanc from Lodi I’d drink again, go figure! It’s quite ripe which actually nicely balances the gooseberry if it all — 2 months ago

Nuestra Seniora Del Tercer Gemelo Mourvedre 2018

I really enjoyed this wine. It’s massive — 16.0% — but not gauche. It’s smooth, low tannin even though young, it is fruity up front but surprisingly dry in the back. It’s wild, with intense flavors (pepper? Even though it’s mourvedre?), lower residual sugar than I expected. The winery recommends the bottle to be upright for a week followed by a 3-4 hour decant. I honored the decant but not the upright. I used a filter but the sediment seemed extremely low. Delightful. $250. — 4 months ago

Surprise! Still haven’t opened it so rating it is a “hope”…think I may have opened a bottle previously…was too soon but hints of greatness linger. These need 10 yrs+ but I think it’s time...2010 Brunello by a famed better winery…bought in Cortona, Italy, next door town to the Montalcino-Montepuciano twin towns of great Italian wine. Resisting the temptation is like resisting “The Borg”. (A Star Trek reference…where are you Capt’n Kirk?) — 7 months ago

Les Jumelles Côte-Rôtie Syrah 2018

Dark ruby; supple nose of small black and red berries, lightly fried bacon, pound cake, violets, alkaloids, and some new oak; fresh minty with medium acids on the taste and just so darn good, the balance between power and elegance skewed towards the latter. Dutch cheeses accompanied this twin-wine. — 17 days ago

Goose Island

Bourbon County Brand Stout Aged In Bourbon Barrels 2017

2019: Blackest stout with a grainy, dark chestnut head that quickly reduces to
Polished black marble with a lunar nebula central. Single arches lacing. Molasses and licorice nose, dark chocolate, rich Turkish coffee, tobacco, caramel, coconut oak smolders through the last sniff. Really well integrated first sip. Powerful and sensually abundant, black licorice extract, chicory coffee, vanilla extract, pecans, dark brown sugar, toffee, mocha for the mileage.
