2016 Plungerhead: Petite Sirah

Ratings/History: Wine Enthusiast 91 Points, 2015

Winemaker’s Notes: The 2016 Lodi Petite Sirah has a beautiful dark purple color that leaves a gentle trail of color after giving the glass a swirl. The aroma jumps out of the glass with notes of fig jam, ripe cherry and fresh blackberry as well as hints of vanilla and toasted coconut. Dark black fruit flavors are balanced with supple tannins, dark chocolate and espresso flavors that linger on and on. The finish has flavors of sandalwood, dried currants, and brambly fruit notes.

2016 Umani Ronchi Villa Bianchi: Verdicchio

Winemaker’s Notes: Brilliant straw yellow color with greenish tints. Bouquet fine and intense, fruity and floral. The wine demonstrates vibrant and fresh notes, followed by a typically almond aftertaste and refreshing tingle. This wine takes its name from the farmhouse of the same name, Verdicchio dei Castelli di Jesi which the Bianchi family used to vinify the grapes from the surrounding vineyard. Today Villa Bianchi aims to express all the typical features of Verdicchio by bringing out its aromatic notes of freshness and elegance.

Sours haven’t always been the new and exciting thing that they are today. Before they received reactions similar to “Ugh what’s wrong with my beer”. However, Anderson Valley Brewing Company saw the refreshing possibilities of sour and started a seasonal gose. Today they offer five, and the Briney Melon Gose is the Beer of the Week.

Jack wants you to imagine a past time, perhaps more recent than his dress would suggest, a time when Gainesville had no craft breweries. Enter Swamp Head Brewery, a light in the dark, and the introduction of the first Gainesville stout Midnight Oil. 8 years later it’s the beer of the week.

2009 Baron De Magana Navarra
Spain- Navarra

Wine Spectator 90 Points: This round red offers ripe fruit flavors of cherry and plum, backed by toast and light earthy notes. Well-integrated tannins and fresh acidity impart structure. Shows depth and harmony. Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Tempranillo and Syrah. Drink now through 2019.

Robert Parker 92 Points: It possesses a Bordeaux-like personality, not surprising, since the cu the 35% Merlot in the blend were acquired from the Petrus vineyard! The rest is 35% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Tempranillo and 10% Syrah planted in an old alluvial river bed with underpinnings of limestone. It boasts a dense ruby/purple color as well as abundant notes of sweet mulberries, white chocolate and black currant fruit, incense, vanillin, and mocha. It’s a complex, modern-styled, Spanish red offering loads of fruit, medium to full body, and terrific balance as well as purity.

2016 Oro de Castilla Verdejo
Spain-Rueda

Winemaker’s Notes: One of the most solid and renowned wines in Rueda. This wine combines fruit, grass and citrus freshness with the best and purest expression of its variety. It has an intense, long and deep mouthfeel, but it also creates a refreshing, mineral and quite complex sensation. That is what makes it one of the most internationally celebrated Spanish white wine brands.
