Gum drop laced blackberry and cherry notes are accented with violet, smoke and herb elements.  supposedly a hint of banana lingering on the finish.  I have to say, not one of my favorites.  2020 really disappointed me.

Lovecraft Country (HBO)

We finally finish this amazing series on HBO about  black families living through the Jim Crow era and fighting not only against racism but witchcraft. Based on a book which in turn is based on H.P Lovecraft horror stories. A known racist in his time. Ain’t that a bitch?

The team ends the discussion with our frustration with politics in general and what should we look forward to with the Democratic Party as well as the Republican Party.  Is money still going to dictate how elections are ran and won?  Are we looking for the right candidates or is it the old politicians still running Congress and fooling the electorate?

Pale straw with green highlights. Great nose of subtle white flowers mixed with white peach fruit. A lovely and intense wine with floral notes, peach and pear flavors.

This was a critically acclaimed series from Great Britain that moved a lot of people with the uncomfortable reality it brings to the situation as well as the characters.   This takes you on a world wind of realities what ever and who ever you may be.  A brilliant addition to HBO

We return with the election night emotional rollercoaster as well as fear for our country falling down further. We continue with our assessment of the DNC and if we would see the Democratic Party take advantage of the new found power they have or will they cower again and give in to the republicans.

2015 Borsao Berola

Intense cherry red color. Remarkable aromatic complexity with memories of black fruit and balsamic and toasted touches. Warm and gentle in the mouth, with soft but persistent tannins in perfect balance with the alcohol

A lot of little buzz jumped up on my reviews about this Sundance winner. Not realizing it was a New York movie as well as filmed in Black and White. I had no expectations whether good or bad, but slightly more excited because it was written, stared and directed in this debut movie.  here's the synopses.  

A down-on-her-luck playwright thinks the only way she can salvage her voice as an artist is to become a rapper at 40.

Welcome back to the REPO team getting in our thoughts for the Election. We split it up into a before during and after. We naturally critique the Democrat's for their weakness but criticize both sides for the dilemma we are in as a nation.decision_2020A9sv3d.png

This Sauvignon Blanc from California is a little fruitier than it is in France, and a little lighter in body and color than a typical Chardonnay.  This very different wine has great notes and flavors of Pears, melons and green apples
