Superman's Pal has been busy in the Manton Valley darkrooms, developing a powerful 15% Syrah that would knock the Man of Steel for a loop! This Syrah is subtle for its its intensity, with dark blackberry and currant flavors. Amazing - dare I say "Super" - cocktail wine! This may be my personal Kryptonite 😺

White Barbera! This was one of the "fantasy" wines announced by "Superman's Pal' and crowdfunded by us Naked Angels. The result is well worth it. A deep straw color with a ring of orange, this is not overly sweet like a white Zinfandel or white Grenache, but has around the amount of residual sugar one might expect from a Pinot Grigio or dry Riesling. The mouthfeel is slightly creamy with a pleasant orange-pomelo flavor, conveying just enough tartness to balance the sugar. While I enjoyed my first bottle as an afternoon cocktail wine, I am reserving my second
to pair with spicy Asian cuisine. Cheers to Mr. Olsen's "Super" fantasy!

Light and fruity with slight spice after taste. Had it with a chicken and eggplant/tomato sauce. High alcohol content, but doesn't taste like it.
