2012 Domaine du Gros’ Noré Bandol

This is some serious juice for serious snow-plowing. A full nose of black currant jam, leather, jerky, stewed blackberries and boysenberries, and mint. Riper on the palate with fresh dark plums, boysenberries, menthol, and a hint of molasses with cinnamon on the finish.

Okay so I was wrong about the marshmallow gun panel being the best panel in girl genius, this is definitely the best one, for two reasons

  1. That shopkeeper is a CENTAUR, she is pulling her own cart, she makes KNIVES, HOW COOL IS THAT
  2. LOOK AT THAT DOG. IT’S WEARING GOGGLES. THAT DOG IS SO HAPPY TO BE WEARING GOGGLES, I LOVE THAT DOG

2012 Lioco Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir

About to hit the slopes with this Pinot Noir, guys! No fining or filtration on this bad boy! Kola nut, small ripe berries, twigs, hint of allspice, and a touch of licorice on the nose. Sweet and tart at the same time on the palate - sour cherry, kola nut, and twigs. Cool stuff!
