Jack recently had a chance to get a behind the scenes tour of Clown Shoe’s Bubble Farm. Many breweries have hop farms, and may even produce their own malt, but few have the dedication to grow their own bubbles for use in carbonating their beer. Taste the difference it makes in this IPA since it is Jack’s Beer of the Week.
Wine Enthusiast 94 Points: Aromas of white spring flower, Bartlett pear and citrus waft out of the glass. The racy, refreshing palate is full of energy, offering crisp yellow-apple, lemon drop and orange zest flavors balanced by vibrant acidity. A perlage of small, refined and continuous bubbles provides the silky backdrop.
James Suckling 92 Points: A delicious and fresh Prosecco that is dry and clean with subtle lemon and fennel notes and some spicy pears. Medium body. Fine bubbles and a fruity finish.
Wilfred Wong of Wine.com 91 Points: One of the top sparkling deals in the world, the non-vintage Nino Franco Rustico Valdobbiadene Prosecco Superiore exhibits a beautifully refined mousse and fresh, tart apple flavors. The wine’s crisp finish pairs it perfectly with delicate appetizers.
Gose were one of the first widely accepted sours on the market. Something about the tart, salty, and fruited craft beer just makes it very refreshing. Destihl Brewery already makes great sours, but the fun thing about this week’s beer of the week is that they used blueberry as the fruit for this iteration of their Wild Sour.
Robert Parker 91 Points: A blend of 81% Cabernet Sauvignon, 11% Petite Sirah and 8% Malbec, the medium to deep garnet-purple colored 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon Lion Tamer is a little closed to begin, giving way to earthy scents of tilled black soil, charcoal, truffles and crushed rocks over a core of warm cassis, plum preserves, cigar box and camphor. Full-bodied and densely packed with juicy black fruits and earthy sparks, it has a lovely line of freshness and a firm level of grainy tannins to support, finishing long with a minty kick.
Wine Enthusiast 91 Points: With 11% Petite Sirah and 8% Malbec in the blend, this is no shy undertaking. Robust, fleshy dark fruit flavors are enveloped by a voluptuous texture. Currant and toasted oak form the core of the midpalate as a hint of cigar comes into play on the finish.

Robert Parker 90 Points: The 2016 Proprietary Red The Lion Tamer has a medium to deep garnet-purple color and opens with notes of crushed black plums, blackberry compote and wild blueberries with hints of spice box, tobacco and dried herbs. Medium to full-bodied, the palate is packed with juicy black fruits plus plenty of spicy sparks, featuring a plush texture and great freshness supporting the long finish.
Wine Enthusiast 93 Points: This is a blend of 40% Malbec, 27% Zinfandel, 21% Petite Sirah, 8% Cabernet Sauvignon and smaller amounts of Mourvèdre, Petit Verdot and Merlot. Together, they work to offer inviting elements of baking spice, cherry vanilla and a creamy palate of integrated tannins and toasted oak. The fleshy, lush feel benefits from a fresh backbone of acidity.

As we enter Florida’s temporary winter, you should always be prepared for the cold. Jack prefers his leather jacket when the temperature drops and he needs to keep warm. Same goes for his beer. There is nothing like a porter with its roasty coffee like quality when coming in from the cold, and that’s why it’s the beer of the week!
