Founders' Reserve Pinot Noir 2019


Nice, fruity Pinot. Has enough structure to stand up to food, but also great for dinner making — 7 months ago

Beringer Vineyards

Founders' Estate California Cabernet Sauvignon 2008

Blackberries. Oak. Leather. Strong flavor - has aged well. Went very well with the steak we paired it with. Better than newer Beringer wines, suggesting that aging them appropriately might be the key to unlocking their potential. — 4 years ago

Goose Island

Bourbon County Brand Stout 2019

Chocolate and vanilla all day. Shocker, lots of bourbon notes. It actually tastes like a slightly boozier version of Founders Backwoods Bastard, despite being a stout and not a scotch ale. Will let this one age another year or two before I have the next bottle. — 3 years ago

Casa Lapostolle

Cuvée Alexandre Apalta Vineyard Merlot 2008

Saw an ‘08, so I grabbed it and wanted to see how it tasted. Founded by Alexandra Marnier Lapostolle and her husband Cyril de Bournet in 1994. The Marnier Lapostolle family are founders and owners of the world-renowned liqueur Grand Marnier. A blend of 85% Merlot and 15% Carmenere, dark red almost purple with berry fruit and lively citrus notes. Raspberry and blackberry flavors with cacao and cedar tones, well balanced, full ripe tannins. Lingering finish ending with oak and fruit notes. Still tasting well! — 5 years ago

Reddish amber color a surprise as Turkish coffee mocha latte just jumps from the bottle. Dark chocolate sea salt with caramel, and roasted nut evocations; all in a darker tonality. Bubble-gator lacings smooth in a viscous river. Bitter arabica and cacao nut greet the palate with honey comb and bee pollen. Brazil nut, cappuccino cigar, Java, cinnamon, vanilla, nutmeg sarsaparilla and cola. Lip smacking as your palate politely asks for a replay. Quality conjuring with smooth talking flavors. Rich, decadent and enticing without compromising its power. Joe cool.

Double Trouble IPA

It’s been three years since my last review of this little slice of double trouble. Loose and thorny crown of creamy white with cartoon bone lacing plus bubble font. Golden overall, but reddish tinges turn it pink. Banana bread, with honey butter, a bit of molasses and orange marmalade scented, but the breakfast stops there. Healthy dollops of of honey buoy herbs de Provence, golden apple, juniper sharpness, lemon-arabica, pecan, and extra lavender. .
