9.1

Port City Hazy IPA.
Pours a deep gold w craggy head, though not that hazy unleas you twirl the bottle first. Classic tropical/guava aromas, balanced bitterness and satisfying malty palate.

Veritas Vineyard

Monticello Petit Manseng 2008

More than a dozen years from harvest the Veritas Petit Manseng is a truly lush and openly seductive example of the varietal.

The nose evolves from sweet peaches to a more open and opulent honey-dew as it grows on the nose.

The approach of the mouthfeel is velvety smooth but also well-balanced and palate-coating. The finish is delightfully long but in no way at all ‘cloying’, and in fact so balanced it simply brings you right back to the nose.

While it may be tempting to jump into the parade that is the discovery of Virginian Petit Manseng~ the 2008 Veritas example of it is proof that patience has its reward.

We’re entering new territory here, and I’m smitten with it.
