South African Rose!

Toppers note:

Rustenberg “Stellenbosch” Petit Verdot Rose ~2017~ This is a refreshing clean Rose with plenty of strawberry and red cherry notes in the nose. The body has light mild acidity for structure and because of the use of stainless steel tanks the wine has smooth intriguing flavors that flow effortlessly across the palate and linger nicely in the finish.

 

Ravens Wood “old vine” Zinfandel

label

Commercial Description:A nose of black cherry and some spice, dark garnet in color. A medium to full bodied red, with black cherry, blackberry, vanilla and some spice on smooth finish, a very good QPR.

Toppers note ~ Vibrant aromas and flavors are found in this wine, I had to let mine sit without cork for quite awhile, found it even better 24 hours later. Dark cherry, plum, spice and pepper flavors are nicely integrated balanced with medium tannins that are refined. The finish has smooth lingering flavors on the palate. salute

Founders Centennial IPA!

  • Appearance: Hazy copper color. Tons of clear, fast rising bubbles. Fluffy quarter inch head that dissipates slowly. Lots of sticky lacing.
  • Aroma: Light brown sugar sweetness. Grapefruit zest. Piney hops.
  • Taste: Smooth and creamy mouthfeel. Very good carbonation (as if you couldn’t tell from the photo). Mildly sweet malt at the onset. Tart citrus flavors (think white grapefruit) at mid-palate. Hop bitterness builds and leads you to a  piney and slightly astringent finish. Pleasing bitter aftertaste with just a hint of sweetness lurking in the background.
  • ABV: 7.2%

Winemaker Notes

Phantom, Bogle’s mysterious apparition of ripe berry and relentless spice, returns to haunt wine lovers.   Full of concentration and intensity, this wine will tease, tantalize and linger long after the last sip is gone.
Wild berries, black pepper and hints of juniper are framed by the influence of oak aging with baking spices with a hint of toasty vanilla. On the palate, the entry is explosive, supported by chewy, chalky tannins that will age this wine for decades. The lingering, complex finish leaves one in anticipation of the next sip.
Welcome the winery ghost into your home again with this latest vintage…before it vanishes again.
