It’s Copa Del Rey time! As a Barça fan, I’ve gotta knock back some Cava in honor! Raspberries and wet stone on the nose. Raspberries, red delicious apples, and not much else on the palate with some tart, but somewhat lingering acidity. Like other Barça seasons, nothing really wrong with this, but we’ve had a LOT better.
Oooh this is a lovely Côtes du Roussillon Villages. Ripe blackberries, boysenberries, violets, chocolate, plums, and cocoa powder on the nose. Chewy blackberries on the palate with fresh tar and pepper.
I’m dressing up for Presidents’ Day by going old-school for this California Cab even though I’m just like my country, I’m young, scrappy, and hungry (always hungry). Ripe on the nose with cassis, black cherries, ripe green pepper, dill, and vanilla. Cassis, vanilla, and cinnamon on the palate with a candied raspberry finish and pretty fresh, mouthwatering acidity.
Oh you know, just hanging out with this “little sweet one”. Cherries and raspberries on the nose with young sapling twigs. Cherries and raspberries on the palate with a hint of wood and bramble notes. Nice fresh acidity.
