Brinkman Block Rutherford Cabernet Sauvignon 2019

Paul K

Great tasting last night of wines below with @Justin Stephens and @Andrew Bohi over Zoom with a great group of friends including @James K. We missed @Vanessa and @J Greene.
It seemed everyone had a different favorite which speaks well to the quality and consistency from Hunnicutt. My WoTN was the Brinkman.
Dinner at Our Paladar in Rochester, MN. If you’re in the area or visiting, you have to check it out! Food and people are amazing!

My first 2017 of this. This one has more tannins than others. Still great, but will be even better after awhile. 92 - 93 — 3 years ago

Bodegas Borsao

Tres Picos Campo de Borja Garnacha 2015

It is unfortunate that this wine, while more expensive, is only just as enjoyable as it's much cheaper counterpart (being the regular borsao garnacha). It is absolutely delicious, but I fear that this version will simply slip by the wayside due to it being so much more expensive than the cheaper version by the same company. I loved it, but won't again spend 7$ more to purchase it unless I am unable to find the regular borsao — 7 years ago

Wayside Cider

Half Wild Sparkling Semi-Sweet Cider

City culture but still feeling the wild. #cider at Wassail
Says semi sweet, but methinks it dried in the bottle for the better.

Wayside Cider

The Wild Select Mountain Cider

Very nice deep gold hue, bright apple aromas and fine body and finish. Some bitter phenolics adding complexity; overall a great cider. — 4 years ago

A great red blend for dinner. Not overly complex, not too fruity or acidic or tannic, just perfect to go with ribs! — 8 years ago
