Lot 18 / The Tasting Room, $17


We have to give a call out to Lot 18 for great customer service on this one. We don’t do this often but felt the need to write the company to let them know this bottle fell well outside our enjoyment spectrum. Without hesitation, Lot 18 refunded us the price of the bottle and asked if there were any others we did not enjoy. Well done and great customer service.

Aaron: This was downright awful.  Grapefruit and guava on the nose with palm trees but the flavor is just bad.  It tasted like unsweetened lemon juice.  There were some unappealing mushrooms which didn’t help the sour look on my face.  The issue was there was no good tasting fruit, maybe just some pine cones.  Definitely, skip it.  79 points.

Teri: Lemon and stone fruits on the nose with an extremely tart flavor. Short finish and high acidity and lemon flavors made the bottle seem like I was drinking weak lemon juice. Not to my liking. I would say skip this bottle. 81 points
