#1

Amaranta

Cabernet Sauvignon 2015

I’m watching MMA and drinking wine. That’s issue #1. Despite this seeming contradiction, it’s actually a strong metaphor for what I’m going through. I’m fighting this wine. I want so much to like it, but I’m on the cusp of going either way. It’s a 5 round fight, so I’m up for making sure this doesn’t go to the judges scorecard. — 5 days ago

C.V.N.E. (Compañía Vinícola del Norte de España)

Imperial Gran Reserva Rioja Tempranillo Blend 1999

SNM (Sunday Night Magnum!) with @Steve Haro @Andrew Neyer @David Moffat @Matt Davis.
Another special wine in tonight’s magnum lineup. This was my contribution. An anniversary gift from my betrothed a few years back. The 2004 was the
#1 rated wine on WS Top 100 in 2013. The 1999 lived up to expectations. Tons of blackberry, mushroom, leather, and awesomeness. More austere than I expected. This can easily go another 5 years without breaking a sweat. Maybe 10. This is one of the last truly special bottles I have, but so happy I cracked it open with good friends who appreciated it. That’s what wine is meant for.

It was my #1 in the flight. Dark, gripping with a savory quality that surprised me since it was a 2013 flight. Always fun to try cellar gems young!

Whistlepig

12 Year Old World Madeira Cask Vermont Straight Rye Whiskey

Simply phenomenal. A Rye to seek out. Painfully smooth and glides down like butter. A 3 blend rye aged in Madeira/Sauternes/Port casks...the majority in Madeira. As for the painting it is a work from Todd Marinovich himself who is the protagonist here 🖕🏽 and a guy who many of my friends went to school with at SC. He’s been a tool a good part of his life but who knows what signposts dictate a man’s life path. His Dad’s approach to parenting is a cautionary tale for sure. I hope he’s turned it around. His painting cracked me up last night, I know that. — 2 months ago

@TheSkip this is way too high end to remove back hair. If you need folical removal via corn alcohol drink some Early Times. Ya heard? You’re welcome!

Regional Selections Margaret River Cabernet Sauvignon 2013

Yes, the convicts are back!
This is a whole-grain effort which displays a little bit of everything. It’s a cab, but has a perfume of mulberry and tar. Palette is consistent with notes of olives. Superb structure on the mid-palette, showing moderate extraction. We think this is another $20 gem.

I would be hard pressed to choose between the 12, 13 and 14. Good right after popping the cork.

@Bob Bressler Hi Buddy!
I mean this from the bottom of my heart. The wine world will miss you tremendously when you move on from this venture this year. I will definitely be loading up on your PHENOMENAL California Bordeaux this year as it is your last vintage. I truly encourage everyone to do so as well. I’m not blowing smoke. Every single one of his vintages is legit and will compete with anything in your cellar. At $95 it’s a steal That has always flown under the radar.
A sincere thank you my friend for years of bottled memories. Every bottle that I’ve opened encapsulated a memorable occasion!!!!!!
You will be missed tremendously!!!
