When was the last time you had a gose? I mean a pure non fruited example of the style. Rogue Ales & Spirits has made a great example of one, and it is made salt harvested from Newport Yaquina Bay. This give the beer a classic flavor profile that is both tart and refreshing.

Domaine Lafage Bastide Miraflores 2016
France – Cotes du Roussillon

Winemakers Notes: A custom cuvée for European Cellars and a joint project between Eric Solomon and Jean-Marc Lafage, Bastide Miraflors is a cuvée created from Grenache grown on rocky, alluvial clay soils resembling those of the Rhône Valley combined with Syrah grown on schist in the village of Maury.

94 Point Jeb Dunnuck: The 2016 Côtes du Roussillon Bastide Miraflors is, I suspect, the finest vintage for this cuvée to date (it’s in the same league as the off-the-charts 2015). A blend of 80% Syrah and 20% Grenache from Lesquerde and Saint Martin de Fenouillet, aged all in older barrels and concrete tanks, it boasts rockstar notes of ripe blackberry fruits, spice, dried garrigue, and hints of chocolate.

Baron de Ley Rioja Blanco 2017
Spain – Rioja

Winemakers Notes: Pale yellow with greenish glints. The nose surprises you with an attractive explosion of exotic aromas, wild herbs and dill. On the palate, a perfect balance of acidity and alcohol, with a fresh, long finish.

Wine Enthusiast: Fleshy apple and peach aromas lead to a medium-bodied palate. Standard flavors of stone fruits are nice but simple, while this blend of Viura and Malvasia finishes with light notes of apple and nectarine.

Mark Herold Wines Collide Red Blend
California – Napa

Winemakers Notes: Notes of blackberry jam, candied cranberries, roasted hazelnuts, crème de cassis and an array of ripe purple fruits. These aromas are lifted with notes of fresh wildflowers, apricot skin, toasted cinnamon, black olives, marzipan and suede. The unctuous palate of black and purple fruit framed by violets, delivers with amazing length and structure; finishing with fine grained tannins.

92 Point Vinous: The 2015 Collide is outrageously beautiful. Super-ripe dark cherry, plum, lavender, chocolate, menthol and crème de cassis infuse this bold, flavorful wine. This is ablend of 42% Petite Sirah, 30% Tempranillo, 25% Graciano and 3% Carignan.

Retail: $27.99

Raymond R. Collection Sauvignon Blanc
California

Winemakers Notes: The 2017 R Collection Sauvignon Blanc is a lively, elegant wine fermented 100% in stainless steel tanks. Bright aromas of melon and fresh lemon are accented by invigorating flavors of mango, pear, and lychee. With a crisp acidity and a smooth, mineral finish, this wine is the perfect pairing for a variety of dishes. Try it with a crab and artichoke salad or grilled shrimp skewers.

This week we are featuring New Holland Brewing Dragon’s Milk White Bourbon Barrel Aged White Stout. This beer challenges your preconceptions as to what a “white stout” is. Normally, Jack thinks of light colored ale given stout qualities by other means like chocolate, or coffee. This white stout gets its body from the bourbon barrel making it thicker than expected. Try it as the Beer of the week!
