Elmaro Vineyard Red Table Wine

3 Cheers: much better than I remembered. The only way to drink it is three glasses at a time, but then Iโ€™d say that about any wine. โ€” 20 days ago

Yellow Snow Pilsner

One of the best winter beers I've ever had the privilege to taste. Light but super packed with flavor of those spruce tips. What a fantastic winter beer....stop reading this and go buy this now. โ€” 8 days ago

Barranca Sonoma County Red Blend 2013

There are pros and cons to holding this a couple of years. The big pro seem to be a wine with much more expressive fruit on the front. However, the younger vintages seem to be more balanced but with much more astringent and almost metallic fruit character to them. This is doing very well, although I take away some points because the finish isn't really that memorable. Nose of roasted black fruits and truffle. Sweet and youthful but sort of funky. Nice dark black fruits on the front. Dense and consolidated. Very little acidity. Touch of graphite and herb in the middle. The finish is rather short. Some toasted Oak tannin. I think I have one more bottle to hold another year or two in order to see if that finish develops into something a little bit better than it was today. โ€” 2 days ago

Canvas

Cabernet Sauvignon 2015

Canvus cabernet sauvignon 2016 by Michael Mondavi! This was a free bottle of wine from the Grand Hyatt in Buckhead GA. WOW. I expected this to be very bad wine I am completely amazed of how good it is and for the price itโ€™s like a heavy duty Pinot Noir on steroids. Maybe this is just a great bottle but dang! Yes it is my first glass of wine of the night. Big dark fruit. Lavender and licorice. An Oaky finish leaves you thinking... wow. I would say this should be my daily wine. โ€” 9 days ago

Aslin Beer Company

Johann Speaks Easky Double India Pale Ale

Greg Ballington
9.2

A brownish yellow in appearance with light head. Rich mouthfeel and nose. Tons of molasses, vanilla, toasted coconut, a bit creamy and quite floral. Lingering finish.

This is a double india pale ale aged in bourbon barrels with toasted coconut. This was aged for six months in bourbon barrels prior to adding the toasted coconut. Super fun event at District Space, looking forward to their next Aslin Pop Up.

$$$ - Purchased at the Aslin Pop Up at District Space in Washington, DC for $30.00. Release price (8/3/17) was $11.00 for a 500mL bottle.
