    Just finished a moscato from Lynchburg Winery in Lynchburg, Tenn. Oh yeah, there's more than Jack Daniel there. :dg

    Finished the bottle of South African syrah. I have seen this stuff for as little as $7. Very nice IMO.

    This is a beast. Cola, blueberry, cherry. Tannins have mellowed really nicely, but I think this could still sit another few years and be great. Not likely to last that long, sadly. I only bottled what I had left after blending and am down to 4 bottles now.

    A pretty nice Chianti, but not a Fava bean in sight.

    Leftover pumpkin wine after bottling 11 bottles. Yeah it’s a little young, but it’s got a lot of promise and hey, why waste it? Lol

    Popped one of these last night with some pizza. Easy drinker for sure that will please most any crowd. Kitchen sink blend from Paso Robles.

    @ibglowin I guess I miss out on wines like that, a funky label on a home made bottle is fine, but for some reason I just can't get myself to buy a commercial wine with a funky label.

    Isn't that funny, and if I am at the store and see a funky label, that's the one I'm going for. Not sure why that is, but I haven't been horribly disappointed often.

    I snagged these to try as they were basically a 2nd tier label from Austin Hope a few weeks back after their flagship wine (pictured below) was named #10 on their Top 100 wines for 2019 by WE. The Troublemaker wines have also been spotted in the wild at various Costco as well as Albertson's. Pretty good for $12 and very close to the Columbia Crest H3 Les Chevaux red blend in quality.

    This might be the best Baco I've had. Am a big fan!
