Libertat Cava Brut Rosé

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.

2015 The Federalist Cabernet Sauvignon

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.
