Beverage of the Week
Troon Vineyard Côtes Du Kubli Blanc Applegate Valley 2018
The grapes are biodynamically farmed making this the frist Troon wine to be made exclusively from biodynamically farmed grapes. Previous vintages of Troon’s Kubli Blanc were made with a near equal amount of Marsanne and Viognier. The Côtes du Kubli Blanc is made with with a blend of 51% Viognier, 28% Marsanne, and 21% Roussanne. See the Beverage of the Week feature
Bib & Tucker American White Whiskey
Brilliant, crystal clear. The aromatics are reminiscent of stepping into a large feed warehouse (I love that smell) with waves of raw grains filling the nose supported by accents of grass, wild herbs, and bread dough. The palate confirms the nose delivering a dense, grain-focused core with waves of spice, dried herbs, and sweet sap accents. Medium-bodied with lush grains and vibrant edges thanks to a dose of bright acidity. $40 – 3 Stars
Saladini Pilastri Consenso Rosato IGP Marches 2018
Brilliant, medium salmon color. The nose is moderately intense offering scents of raspberry and strawberry with supporting notes of mineral, rose petals, and orange peel. The palate confirms the nose delivering a red fruit-driven core with flavors of crushed red berries and hibiscus flower. The finish is long and lingering with bright acidity. Medium-bodied and perfectly balanced with a vibrant texture. $10 4 Stars/90 points
