Re: Versado Argentinian Malbec 2014

Versado Malbec 2014 Mendoza, Argentina Super nice modern Malbec, very well put together. Defined cherry and dark berry fruit, very powerful yet sleek and well-integrated tannins and great, appropriate acidity. Some beet and herbals. The Versado Reserva Ancient Malbec 2014 is going for $59.95 and th...

Ch. Loumelat Cuvée J.J. Lesgourgues 2015 Bordeaux

Château Loumelat Cuvée J.J. Lesgourgues 2015 Nice stuff! Here is classic bordeaux style in a medium body, round like a Merlot-dominated Right bank and yet wooly from some Cabernet signature adding cassis jam. Loads of berry (notably blackberry) and a bit of spicy toasty oak. Extremely good stuff to...

Chateau Fortia 2012 Baron Ch.neuf-du-Pape

Château Fortia Cuvée Du Baron Châteauneuf Du Pape 2012 Bought a few years ago, began its maturation cycle last year but still early & if I had a second bottle I'd wait six years. Quality cork is stained black at tip, and wine opens slightly heavy-rich berry and wild herbs and black plum, slight...

godspeed

I twice enjoyed the new Hefeweizen at Godspeed, vivid color and great flavour.

Aroma could be slightly more to it perhaps, yet still a great early batch & the KaiZen is strong in this brewery. The Kölsch seems really dialled in and I like the full aromas.

Peyros 2015 VV Madiran Tannat-Cabernet

Château Peyros Vieilles Vignes Madiran 2015 Tannat/Cabernet Franc Here is another Peyros Madiran this time made with Old Vines grapes. Again, nice rounded and dry Bordeaux-like structure, yet including slightly wooly blackcurrant-blackberry / cedar and slightly buttery oak. Carries into some oaky s...

Re: Bellwoods Brewery

I was wondering if anyone has had infection issues with beers other than the 2018 BOYD? I sent a Black Roses to someone recently as a desired extra in a trade and he let me know it had gone quite sour. Has anyone had issues with 2017 BOYD, 2017 or 18 Skeleton Keys or recent 3 Minutes to Midnight? C...

Re: What're you drinking right now?

Having a Mikkeller Peter Pale & Mary - super nice sessionable APA at the LCBO! 473 ml cans. https://untappd.akamaized.net/site/beer_logos_hd/beer-573270_83790_hd.jpeg It's contracted by Muddy York over near St. Clair and O'Connor but it tastes like any great brew made overseas by... Mikkel. This...

Boutari Naoussa 2016

Boutari Grande Reserve Naoussa 2008 - nice grippy tannins and acidity, good layers of fruit under the assertive tart-dry palate, herbs and stony mineral. A runaway hit vintage for this winemaker, good to drink or cellar or certainly make a hell of a stew dish with this. I'm gonna sip this one slowl...

San Silvestro Patres Barolo '14

San Silvestro Patres Barolo Nebbiolo 2014 A very taut, dry Nebbiolo-based Piedmont red. Has some dry berry and deep cherry, stone and cranberry, mild hints sandalwood-y spice, fresh blackberry compote. This has been opening up for over a day so it's gotten some air to help relax it, but a bottle of...

Chenet Res. Pinot Noir 2018

J.P. Chenet Pinot Noir Reserve "Vin de France" There's a place for these light, simple and easy 'bistro wines' and it might be a park bench on a sunny day traveling in Europe. I'm not kidding. This Chenet is priced rather high as the regular price is $14, but right now it's $11 and I need...

Rocca Sveva Ripasso Superiore 2013

Rocca Sveva Valpolicella Ripasso Superiore 2013 Corvina Blend, Veneto Italy Here is a big rich wine that needs decanting (or leave it for a day) to get some air and balance out, it's very plummy-rich at first, and the Corvina, Rondinella and Molinara grapes together express a deep black & red c...
