The garden strawberry (or simply strawberry /ˈstrɔːb(ə)ri/; Fragaria × ananassa) is a widely grown hybrid species of the genus Fragaria (collectively known as the strawberries). It is cultivated worldwide for its fruit. The fruit (which is not a botanical berry, but an aggregate accessory fruit) is widely appreciated for its characteristic aroma, bright red color, juicy texture, and sweetness. It is consumed in large quantities, either fresh or in such prepared foods as preserves, fruit juice, pies, ice creams, milkshakes, and chocolates. Artificial strawberry aroma is also widely used in many industrial food products.

    • The stunning 2013 releases from Kutch

      These were very smart indeed. Jamie Kutch has a good story, and I reckon his 2013s are his best wines yet. My feeling is that they’re a bit more elegant and pure than previous releases (even though previous releases were pretty smart wines). I don’t know whether this is because of a stylistic evolution, or is a feature of the vintage – and, of course, it’s my own impression, which may be wrong.

      Bonny Doon Vineyard 2009 Vin Gris De Cigare Rosé, $11.89-$15.99, 91 points, was a light salmon color with an orange cast. Elusive floral and citrus notes on the nose were pleasant. A creamy near medium body carried good acidity with flavors of hibiscus and strawberry. Finished very long on gentle orange pekoe, cool key lime, and easy ginger notes with a well integrated 13.4% alcohol.

  • Boozehoundz’s Best of 2014!

    … the Mendocino’s Anderson Valley is that type of Pinot Noir that makes you realizes why you love, or should love, Pinot Noir, because it has everything, a confluence of a deft acidity, black cherry, raspberry, mild strawberry, a hint of dark cola, spice, judicious oak, and it walks that line between being polite yet mysterious, an in-your-face attitude, and that indescribable intangible that just makes it taste so damn good.
