    Oh wow! I used to really enjoy that, but couldn't tell you the last time I had one.

    It is really good, IMO. Had to go to Murfreesboro, TN, to find it. Glad that's not all I was buying that day!

    Just opened (finally) the last of my WE SI Australian Petit Verdot. Even at ~5 years, still is pretty poor. Not sorry to see this batch meet its end! :gb

    Maybe that is why WE discontinued it? Was recently looking to see if anyone offered a PV Kit.

    The PV, by all accounts, was meh. But the Amarone (and time a lesser degree, the Malbec) were very good. It unfortunate that WE eliminated them.

    I have 100 bottles of strawberry just like that. It's enough to make me want to coil up some tubing to save it. LOL. But no, I won't.

    I pretty much like every beer Yuengling makes and then there is the added allure of it being a decent sized non-craft American brewery. The Porter is very hard to find in the South so I grabbed it when I saw it and now I wish I'd grabbed more than two sixes. $6.99 a six in high sin tax Tennessee. Very reasonable, I thought.

    Pottsville, PA is a short drive from my house. In my previous life, I had the opportunity to meet and work with Dick Yuengling and his crew. Great businessman, smart... makes a good beer.

    Thank you for posting, as it is 4:05 and I needed motivation to begin to get thirsty for my time at home. :D

    Winery Series Amarone that just hit 4 years old (pitched on 1/10/2016). Been a while since I've opened one and it is way better than I remember. I might be in trouble...

    Really working HARD to be the absolute worst white wine I have ever had, and that includes the $3.99 stuff. Flavor profile: water. I'll mix this with ginger ale as a spritzer from this glass on.

    Glad I only bought IMG_1485.jpg two!

    Is it on the sweet side, or dry?
