New Holland Knickerbocker Barrel Gin
Brilliant, pale golden straw. The aromatics are very interesting and certainly barrel-driven with scents of cola and Whiskey with accents of ginger, sweet citrus, and a host of brown baking spices supported by hints of brown sugar. The palate is in somewhat agreement with the nose as the decadent Whiskey and brown spice notes give way to peppery ginger and citrus notes that become redolent of lemongrass and citronelle. Full-bodied with dense brown spirit and brown spice notes that are foiled by citrus and ginger ultimately becoming dry. $29.99 – 3.5 Stars
Tipp Rambler Sparkling Rosé California NV
Brilliant, medium salmon color. The nose is moderately intense offering scents of raspberry and wet stones with supporting notes of violet and cranberry. The palate confirms the nose delivering a red fruit-driven core with flavors of raspberry and red currant. The finish lingers. Medium-bodied and nicely balanced with a juicy texture. $7 3.5 Stars/87 points
Troon Vineyard Côtes Du Kubli Applegate Valley 2018
See the Full BevX Featured Review Brilliant, medium pale straw color. The aromatics are very intense offering scents of tropical fruit and spring flowers with supporting notes of bees wax, citrus zest, and subtle oak accents. The palate confirms the nose delivering a green and tropical fruit-driven core with flavors of Asian pear, white peach, and a wet slate mineral accent rising on the finish. The finish is long and lingering. Medium-bodied and perfectly balanced with a vibrant but supple texture. $35 4.5 Stars/96 points
