Swim against the flow.
Lightning glimpsed through water;
Sustain the species!
WOW! An impressive selection of wines that shows dedication, passion and love for the wine making at a great prices. The Headwaters 2005 just tasted by R. Parker few months ago, got a 95 point rating, in a week ‘SOLD OUT’ in New York.
So don’t miss the chance to try one or two:
Elegant, with aromas of violet and vanilla while in your mouth develops plum and black cherry. This is a wine that will grow in your glass 90 Pts. SP
Only 357 cases were produced, this means it will sell out fast! 90 Pts SP
A mouthful, medium-full dark and rich with well balanced fruit. 90 Pts. SP
This perhaps the best MERLOT ever, you will need another bottle around. 92 Pts SP
Coho is the shared aspiration of Brooks Painter and Gary Lipp to produce flavorful, balanced wines. Grown in select cool-climate vineyards, Coho wines emphasize fruit purity and vitality. Our combined experience working for California wineries totals almost fifty years: both of us involved in all aspects of our craft, acquiring the skills to bottle our passion.
Our choice of Coho as the name of our brand might seem curious as it doesn't invoke images of vineyards or wine, but to us the salmon embodies an innate wisdom so essential to understanding ourselves and our environment. As stewards of the land winemakers must strive to sustain our habitat and the species that share it. And like the salmon we need the steadfast will to keep going no matter how difficult the journey.
This great tasting cognac blended just for smoking cigars is truly a champ in my book !
It really brought out the flavors in my cigar , the cognac was smooth with a little oak flavor
If you like cigars and sipping Cognac you won’t be disappointed!
To elaborate this Reserve Cigar, the Maison A.E. Dor has made a specific blending of different “crus” including the noblest (Grande and Petite Champagne in a large share). The new oak brings a slight excess of “wood” which, with a stronger alcohol content of 42%, offers a perfect cognac for demanding amateurs. It harmonizes a great finesse with a strong and well-built character. This cognac develops and integrates the aromatic fragrances of the cigar.
This is an amazing Cognac. The aroma filled the room and gave me the feeling it was a holiday or the feeling of smoking a nice cigar under a palm tree on a hot summer night. This is what Rober Parker had to say about it in the Hedonist's Gazette:
"We finished with the new release of Tesseron’s Cognac. The Tesseron family (currently the proprietors of St.-Estèphe’s Lafon-Rochet and Pauillac’s Pontet-Canet) made its fortune in the Cognac business, and it is one of the few families to possess ancient stocks of great vintages that have not been diluted with water or manipulated in any manner. They released small quantities of Lot 29 (1929), which remains the most ethereal Cognac I have ever tasted. I’m no expert, but their newest release, the 1953, seems close in quality to the 1929. Slightly darker than the 1929, the 1953 is pure silk, which at this alcohol level is very dangerous indeed. The complex aromatics can fill a room."
100 points: Cognac Tesseron Lot No. 29 XO Exception Cognac
