Soft notes of honeysuckle and ripe nectarine lead into a decadently long finish of vanilla bean and perfectly ripe white peach.  Late harvest wine is wine made from grapes left on the vine longer than usual.

Soft and light on the palate, it's a dry wine with a tinge of sweetness - notes of honeysuckle, lemon curd, and stone fruit are balanced with vibrant minerality.

A red Italian grape variety that, as of 2000, was the third most-planted red grape variety in Italy.  This grape has luscious flavors of ripe cherry and dark blackberry that harmonize with notes of sweet spice and vanilla.  This is from the Central Coast of California

Since we are in this Corona lock down, I had time to go back to 2019 and bring forward some beat makers,  producers that I didn't get time to touch.  One guy I was enjoying for a few years is Mndsgn (Mind Design) a Philippine, Jersey living, Cali living producer. I got caught up with his style once I listened to his 2014 release Yawn Zen.   Labeled under electronic, not really hip hop with his early releases. This latest release Snaxx has recovered beats from a hard drive that was supposed to be a full release from a 2018 mix tape.  I compare his music discography from then to now.

Continuing with showing love to diverse producers, DJ’s, beat makers. The Laid back creative flow of Glenn Boothe aka - Knxwledge fell into my lap with his new 2020 release while trying to find a Corona Virus groove. My introduction to Knxwledge was his 2015 release HUD Dreams so this was a welcomed surprise. Thus finally getting to talk about this creative artist that caught my attention 2 years ago.
