Alpha Estate Hedgehog Vineyards Xinomavro 2016
Greece – Amyndeon – Hedgehog Vineyard

94 Point Wine & Spirts:  Cold-soaked and fermented in stainless-steel tanks, then aged in white-toasted barrels for a year and in bottle for another, it’s bright and fresh, with no perceptible wood influence. The fruit is cherry-red and layered with spice, notes of wild herbs and fennel fronds accenting its cool feel, but it’s the acidity that gives the wine its tautness and precision.

90 Point Robert Parker: Aged for 12 months in an equal mixture of used and new French barriques. It comes in at 13.6% alcohol. This seems riper than the 2015, which is not a synonym for saying “better,” but I suspect in the long run this will be better.

Owen Rowe Sinister Hand 2016        Washington – Yakima Valley

91 Point Vinous: Moderately saturated medium red. Perfumed, highly nuanced nose offers scents of red raspberry, cherry, meat, red licorice, spices and purple sage, plus a whiff of graphite minerality and a faintly candied quality that carries through onto the palate. Savory and classically dry, with its boysenberry and blackberry fruit flavors complemented by salty minerality. The tannins are fairly light but firm.

2018 Joseph Carr Cabernet Sauvignon
California – Paso Robles

Winemaker Notes: The 2014 is a richer style, chewy texture with nice acidity and good balance. The aromas of this wine are dusty cherry, black pepper, plum, oak and vanilla. This wine is chewy, well balance of Zinfandel as well as spicy flavors of black cherry, plum and black pepper. It pairs well with beef especially in a pepper sauce, pork or sausage, Asiago, Canestato, goat cheese, Gouda, Gruyere, Muenster, Pecorino or Piave, basil, oregano, pepper or mild tomato sauces.

90 Point Wine Enthusiast: This wine is aged in American oak for 10 months. It offers a commingling of strawberry jam, tree bark, black pepper and smoky flavors set on a brawny, rich palate.

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.
