2016 Vinos del Viento "Montaña La Ermita de Santa Bárbara" Garnacha Campo de Borja
Review Date: 07-01-2020
For those seeking the perfect expression of old bush vine Garnacha, look no further because this is the one! Campo De Borja (DO), known for its dark bearing, well-draining soils consisting of large rocky pebbles and a unique micro-climate makes this a very special single vineyard bottling that is quite enjoyable. Think about a wine that this attractive price that is suitable for early enjoyment but can age as long as you have the patience to allow it. The introduction on the nose begins with black cherry, cranberry compote, sweet tobacco, smoked cedar plank and black volcanic salt. On the palate there is a concise preciseness of concentrated red berries along with gratifying tension that shows a merging of weight and length that is stunning. There is a special character to this wine and should not be missed for those looking for over delivering, crowd pleasing juice that is a perfect paring for a weekend of grilled meats generously seasoned with exotic spices, this wine can handle it all.

2016 Solomon Hills Estate Santa Maria Valley Chardonnay
Review Date: 01-06-2020
There is no vagueness that this is a cool climate chardonnay that is reminiscent of old-world chardonnay. Right off the bat, there is a noticeable aroma of sea salt and kelp, followed by cortland apples, golden delicious apples, seckel pears, and pepo. There is a clear edge of minerality, flintiness and wet stones on the palate that I find to be a positive attribute in this wine. This is very enjoyable and dry, definitely the other side of the coin when it comes to California chardonnay.

Fred Jerbis Italian Gin (750ml)
Review Date: 11-26-2019
This is by far one of my favorite gins. Fred Jerbis has not only created a stunningly aromatic gin, it is also has a profound mouthfeel that's not like any other I've ever tried. You absolutely get orange blossoms, saffron, mint, thyme, then lingering juniper berries and rowan berries. This finishes with a tad bit of sweetness that is natural. This is a perfect sipping gin. But if you must, a tonic or soda water is also a great complement to round out the flavors.
