Dolcetto flavored. Tons of sediment made far a disappointing last two glasses.

I believe this is Kim's #18! She just can't post it b/c there's too much boob in the pic. Sorry. Lol. I shall contain the twins from now on (as best as possible).

It's my phone that's the problem, as soon as I clear out some pictures or music I'll post!

La Spinetta

Il Nero di Casanova Toscana Sangiovese 2016


Jammy, chewy sangiovese at a good price ($20). Dark fruit, alcohol on the nose. Intense, drying on palate - tannic. Pandemic bottle #18. — 8 months ago

Maker’s Mark Distillery

Cask Strength Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whisky

Very drinkable, but quite hot. Relatively straightforward but a very good, intense expression of Kentucky bourbon. Congrats to #18 on a well-deserved victory. — 5 years ago

Limited Edition Rqatsiteli 2011

Here is a unique orange wine from Georgia (the country).

Light salmon/orange in color with a golden hue.

Stinky on the nose, with sour strawberries, rotten cantaloupe, cherries, lemon, garbage(?), white pepper, citrus and turmeric.

Full bodied and bold, for a white wine with no oak, with medium acidity and long legs.

Bone dry on the palate with watery strawberries, lemons, currants, spices and white pepper.
Short finish with firm, yet smooth, tannins.

Orange wine is always interesting to me. Not really a white wine, nor a red, but rather, like a mix of the two. Tastes like white wine, with big tannins and no oak. Drinkable but not for everyone.

This unfiltered wine is made from the Rqatsiteli grape, which is known to be the one of the oldest grape varieties, dating to 3000 BC.

In this limited production, only 3000 bottles were produced. This was bottle #1
8. Very cool.

12.5% alcohol by volume.
