2011 FiftyFifty Imperial Stout

California Malt more

1/26/2016 - Barry Notes Likes this wine: NR

P/cool. Deep black/brown mud color with dark tan/light brown, fine bubble/creamy head which held forever. Incredibly rich, full bodied but so, so smooth. Intensely flavored stout, coffee, earth, steak. Aged 12 yrs in cask, 2 yrs in bottle. Not for the faint of heart, great with cigar. 11.9%. What a treat and can't wait to try their other labels. $30

2011 Williams Selyem Zinfandel Papera Vineyard

Russian River Valley more

1/6/2016 - Barry Notes Likes this wine: 93 points

Solid cork. Decanted and returned to bottle 6 hours prior to service. Clear, bright med purple/ruby color. Exceptional, intense nose. Showing beautifully right now. Super good balance, not hot/over extracted, good acid, smooth, intense proper Zin fruit profile, med/full body. You could drink this all day long. Sharp, clean, long finish. Paired perfectly with spicy beef and especially so with rich chocolate brownie dessert. One of the better Zin I've had, nothing off. Drink now but should hold well for some years. $56

Served well chilled. Cellared 2 years. Big house producer, usually consistent and was again this time around. Good, decent, everyday sparkler with enough spunk to keep me pouring. Bottle showed better than aveage, maybe because it sat for a few years. Nothing off. Rob's bottle. Currently $43

NV Roederer Estate Brut Anderson Valley

12/31/2015 - Barry Notes Likes this wine: 90 points

Cellared 3 years, served well chilled. Proper bubby size/stream, light straw color. This wine showed very, very well and much better than expected considering price point. Good, balanced fruit, ideal drinking window, mature, juicy, fruity, long finish. Excellent sparkler. I will buy and cellar for a few years rather than consume right away to see if I can duplicate the fine showing. Nothing off, Rob's bottle. Currently $20.
