big-leaf-maple-bioBigLeaf Maple Autumn Red is a quaffable, well-balanced American red ale with character. Its malty complexity and coppery color come from a combination of two caramel malts, pale malt, and a hint of maple syrup. To complement these flavors, Anchor used three additions of Nelson Sauvin hops in the brewkettle and a unique blend of Nelson Sauvin, Citra, and Cascade for dry hopping. The result is a distinctive fall seasonal beer with extraordinary depth and intriguing aroma.

Winemakers Notes: “Reminiscent of the bold Abbot’s Table blends of past vintages, this 2012 bottling is predominately blended with the following varietals (Sangiovese, Zinfandel, Malbec, Lemberger and Merlot). This Yakima Valley red wine has mouthwatering aromas of plum, raspberry, white pepper and herbaceous undertones. The mouth-feel has lovely depth and richness with bright acidity, rounded out with hints of vanilla, dark cocoa nibs, robust violet and spice.”

91 Points Wine Spectator – “This rich red delivers a core of roasted plum, cherry compote and jammy blackberry fruit, framed by woodsy spice, smoke and espresso notes. Broad, but mouth-coating and long. Drink now through 2016. 375 cases imported.”

90 Points Wine Advocate – “The flagship 2008 Catalina is composed of 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 18% Carmenere, and 7% Cabernet Franc aged 14 months in new French oak. The fruit was sourced from low yields of only 1.6 tons per acre. Notions of pain grille, pencil lead, exotic spices, incense, black currant, and blackberry set the stage for a structured, plush, nicely proportioned Blend that will benefit from an additional 2-3 years of cellaring. It has a drinking window extending from 2014 to 2023.”

90 Points Wine Spectator – “Ripe, juicy and well-defined, featuring nicely integrated tobacco, roasted herb, black currant and cherry fruit, which carries through the sleek, mouthwatering finish. Cabernet Sauvignon, Carmenère and Cabernet Franc. Drink now through 2013. 600 cases imported.” Issue: Oct 15, 2011
