Belle de Nuit Central Coast Gewürztraminer 2019

Chasing my chaotic self-administered pandemic hair chopping with a Gewurtz from Arroyo Seco which seems to me apropos as I imagine the region as wind-swept and tousled. This wine is not so much and that is a good thing. All is in harmony. There is just the right amount of everything and it hits you in order—the lychees are followed by a green lawn leading to the flower garden full of roses and gardenias all spirited along by a nice amount of acid and powered by a prickling tannin. I’m not normally the biggest Gewurtz fan but I’d reach for this a second time. I’d maybe even pair it with a “hard to pair” thing like artichoke. Something about the floral nature of both I think could line up. Is that crazy? Maybe. But this is coming from someone who just used her kitchen scissors to give herself an intentionally asymmetrical haircut. — 16 days ago

Dark Horse Distillery

Special Release Barrel Strength Rye Whiskey

Batch prior to the January 2016 name change to Union Horse. Citrus notes and a spicy finish. A little hot on its own, but it makes a great cocktail (tonight was a Red Hook - riff on a Manhattan). — 4 days ago

Bella Union

Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2015

Tried this about year ago! Deep Ruby with aromas of ripe dark fruits, pepper spice and cedar notes. A Far Niente offering aged for 16 months in 60% new French oak. On the palate flavors of black cherry, ripe plum and blackberry with notes of cacao and espresso. Fine structured tannins with good acidity on long finish ending with integrated fruit, spice and toasty oak character. Aged well! — a month ago
