This is a nice entry-level tawny port to enjoy with friends, like my buddy, squishabledotcom Shiba! Golden raisins, tobacco smoke, and macerated blackberries on the nose. Golden raisins, macerated cherries, blackberries, cedar, wood, and tropical tobacco smoke with nice acidity on the palate.

So this is a crazy prosecco “on its lees” (you can even see the less in the bottle), which is apparently a traditional style of making prosecco in the Conegliano area of Italy. Lemon rind, old rustic bread, dough, yellow flowers, and pear on the nose. A bit simple on the palate - bread, lemon, touch of peach and flowers. Feels like it wants to be champagne, but it isn’t…
Finally! A wine label that represents me and squishabledotcom Shiba! Funky nose of tart red fruit, boysenberries, pepper, and … wine-soaked cheese rind! Very tart on the palate with black pepper, green and black olives, then tart red fruit, and dried cherry on the finish. This is like a baby Gigondas! Funky and great stuff!
