Jack has traveled the world over and rarely finds a more finely made beer than those made by trappist monks. Among those, Orval is a beer that stands out from a pack of beautiful beers. They utilize Bret to create an elegant, refreshing, and dry pale ale.

2018 Joseph Carr Cabernet Sauvignon
California – Paso Robles

Winemaker Notes: The wine shows notes of black cherry, chocolate, and vanilla. Flavors of blackberry and sweet spice emerge on the palate, bolstered by a firm acidity, velvety tannin’s, and a long finish.

91 Point Wine Enthusiast: Deep and lush aromas of candied blueberry and black cherry meet with chocolate cake, light brown spices and a touch of beef jerky on the nose of this judiciously priced wine. Though a tad light on the palate at first, it has an energetic and spicy acidity that carries forth flavors of tobacco and black fruit.

This week we are focusing on the nectar of the hop. New Planet Beer Seclusion IPA has a prominent hop profile, and malt balance. It does have a twist though, it is crafted to remove gluten! Since it is not prominently displayed on the label many don’t know this, and the taste certainly doesn’t give it away.

2014 Domain Maestracci Corse Calvi E Prove Roughe
France – Corsica

94 Point Wine & Spirits: Roger Maestracci founded this estate in 1945, choosing a granite plateau on the northwest end of the island. Today, it’s run by his son-in-law’s daughter, Camille-Anaïs Raoust, who blends E Prove from niellucciu, grenache, sciacarellu and syrah, aging it in stainless steel for a year and in oak casks for another. Those facts, however, don’t go far in explaining how this wine manages to feel so immediate and evocative, the notes of sassafras, salt and cedar conjuring up inland forests; the herbal sweetness speaking to the brush that grows between the rocks along the coast. There’s also the appealing tension between velvety berry fruit and gamey volatility, combining in an impression of genuine old-school aristocracy.
