E. Guigal Cotes du Rhone
France – Rhone

91 Points Wine Advocate: There are an impressive 4.5 million bottles of the 2016 Cotes du Rhone, a ripe, silky wine that should bring pleasure to thousands of consumers. Cherries and raspberries mark the nose, while the medium to full-bodied palate adds nuances of cola, tree bark and spice.

 90 points James Suckling: Very brambly, rich and attractive tobacco, red and dark fruit and wild herbs. The palate has richness and an attractive feel with great core flesh and balance. The combination of quality, good value and accessibility here make this quite unique. Drink now.

Jolly Pumpkin is one of the foremost masters of funk. Barrel aging beers has been there thing for over fifteen years. They haven’t met a barrel they haven’t wanted to brew a beer in, and they have used bourbon to wine barrels. You could say “bugs” and barrels are there thing, and Jack respects that. That’s why he’s letting you choose your favorite as the beer of the week!

La Cartuja 2017
Spain – Monterey County

Wine Maker’s Notes: Brilliant ruby. Ripe dark berries, licorice, smoky minerals and a hint of succulent flowers on the perfumed nose. Juicy, round and open-knit; a peppery note adds lift and cut to warm blackberry, bitter cherry and licorice pastille flavors. The long, mineral-accented finish shows very good focus and closes on a youthfully tannic note, leaving cherry pit and floral notes behind. Blend: 70% Garnacha, 30% Mazuelo

 92 point Wine & Spirits: Here’s a good entry point to the wines of Priorat: A garnacha-based blend, this has touches of slate, but it’s mainly focused on fruity notes of blackberries and cherries. Earthiness links the fruit and the firm, sharp tannins, ending fresh, a window that opens out to the Catalan mountains.

Bigfoot is a beast of a beer, packed with bittersweet malt and heaps of aggressive whole-cone Pacific Northwest hops. First introduced in the winter of 1983, Bigfoot is a cult-classic brewed in the barleywine style—strong and robust with the refined intensity of a wine.

 

We at Tipple’s love to try new beers all the time and we’re sure that you do too. In honor of that we are rolling out a new program to help you try new beer and perhaps revisit some old beers you haven’t had in quite a while. For Jack Tipple’s Year of Beer Challenge we will feature a different beer every week. If you purchase that beer on the given week we will punch your card. Once you have completed 52 non-consecutive weeks of featured beers we will give you a Tipple’s glass and you will have your name added to our plaque on the wall and be immortalized in the annals of Tipple’s History.

In the Summer, stouts become a bit of a pariah. Over looked in favor of citrusy IPA’s, crisp Lagers, and quenching sours. Sure they have their die hard base, but it’s time to show stouts some love. The sweet potato stout has a great balance of dry stout, with a touch of lactose to round out the body, with a finish of caramelized sweet potato. Try this Summer friendly stout as this week’s beer of the week.
