Sour Beer

R. López de Heredia

Viña Bosconia Reserva Rioja Tempranillo Blend 2010

Dark ruby in color with a wide reddish rim.

Medium plus in body with medium acidity.

Dry on the palate with nice complexity.

Showing black currants, plums, sour cherries, light oak, spices, peppercorn, dark coffee, tobacco leaf, earth, wet leaves and herbs.

Short finish with round tannins and tangy pomegranates.

This 13 year old is showing nice complexity now. Tasty and a good food wine.

Will continue to age nicely in the next 5 to 7 years.

This 2010 vintage was probably the best vintage in Rioja in the last 20 years. So nice to try these kind of wines.

Robert Parker 94 points.

Needs a couple of hours to open up properly, so be patient.

I paired it with a charcuterie board of meats and cheeses.

A blend of 80% Tempranillo and 15% Garnacha with Graciano and Mazuelo. Aged for 5 years in used American oak barrels.

13.5% alcohol by volume.

91 points.

Fattoria di Fèlsina Berardenga

Riserva Rancia Chianti Classico Sangiovese Blend 2016

Consumed over 3 days. Nose of strawberry. Dark garnet in color. By day three the initial tight, dense palate has added sour cherry, plum currents and a deep array of leather, tobacco, loam, coffee endingwith thyme and violets. This earthy wine needs 3-5 more years or a long decant. Typical Sangiovese/CCR at a very high level. — 5 months ago

Côte du Py Morgon Gamay 2014

Sour cherries along a dusty gravel road. A bit muted. Some herbs and violet. Polished tannins, good acidity, medium plus finish. Sad to realize this might be over the hill as I have several bottles still waiting. It had such an enchanting perfume in its youth. — 3 months ago

Allagash Brewing Company

Curieux Belgian-Style Golden Ale

A nice summer brew with 10.2 abv. We’re not in Mexico anymore Toto!
Even though I do enjoy a nice Modelo during the heat, but it’s just not very strong or flavorful compared to a bourbon barrel aged beer

Baden Pinot Noir 2020

What do we get in Liason that we give up in Basis. How big's the gap? The answer is not huge for personality, a little for complexity, and substantially for cohesiveness.

Basis pours darker wtih a condensed core. Leans heavier on fruit than minerals, more direct, head on. Leaps at you with a teabag of bright red cherries, burnt sugar, wooly musk. The mouth is unpolished but it works, a rawness and some crunch. Sour cherries, macerated yogurt cup strawberries, dried orange peel.

Liason is elegant, Basis is fresh.
