2017 Corvidae WiseGuy Sauvignon Blanc
Washington-Columbia Valley

Winemaker’s Notes: Sauvignon Blanc is one of the most dynamic grapes grown in the Yakima Valley. When fully ripe it still has the hallmark acidity and fragrance of world class versions. The Outlook Vineyard is the source of this fruit. Planted in 1982, the vines yield perfectly ripe fruit that has fully ripe flavors, plenty of minerality, with tremendous natural acidity.

Pair this bright, refreshing wine with oysters on the half shell, sautéed scallops or a mixed green salad with Chevre and a citrus vinaigrette.

2016 Corvidae Rook Merlot
Washington-Yakima Valley

Winemaker’s Notes: The Rook is a beautiful Merlot from two Yakima Valley vineyards. Here this grape is profoundly complex, exuberant fruit aromas and flavors, rich body, and a long silky finish all contribute to form a complete rich red wine. The wine was aged in mostly neutral French oak to keep the bright fruit flavors lively. Showing red and black fruits, sarsaparilla, orange peel, cinnamon and tobacco, this crisply textured red is balanced by fine grained tannins and a rich, pillow soft mid-palate. The Rook is an unabashed Washington State Merlot destined to help upright the California Sideway’s lunacy.

It’s not a surprise that Jack enjoys beer and wine. What is not as well-known is that he has an extensive whiskey collection. However, he is all about efficiency, so if he can find an outstanding barrel aged beer he kills to birds with one stone. Enter Boulevard Whiskey Barrel Stout. Not only does Boulevard make great beer, but their barrel aged beers are some of the best available. That’s why it’s the beer of the week.

2017 Cedar + Salmon Pinot Gris
Oregon-Willamette Valley

Winemaker’s Notes: Our 2017 Willamette Valley Pinot Gris is perfumed with stone fruit aromas like nectarine, peach, and apricot. A touch of lime oil adds to the alluring aromas. This wine is crisp on the palate with hints of lemon rind and then opens up to a lovely mix of exotic fruits like kiwi fruit, mango, and guava. The finish is crisp, dry and refreshing.

93 Points The Tasting Panel: Reminiscent of a fine Alsace style Pinot Gris, the nectar-like perfume of apricot and pear, feathered by a temperance of honeysuckle, makes a memorable introduction to this Oregon charmer. Unctuous on the palate, the crush of ripe pear sidles with pineapple, peach and key lime which come in midway. Acid is not razor sharp, but heads that way, cutting through the sweeter side. Crisp and lean on the finish. Way over delivers.

2016 Cedar + Salmon Pinot Noir
Oregon-Willamette Valley

Winemaker’s Notes: Brimming with fresh blackberry and plum aromas, the Willamette Valley Pinot Noir gains earth and herb nuances with time. Ripe red plums and red cherries dominate the smooth palate, accented by a dash of herbs.

92 Points The Tasting Panel: Earth-toned aromas of plum and black raspberry are mesmerizing. Juicy black cherry melds with tilled soil and mushroom on the palate, creating a creaminess accented by dried herbs. The wine is aged in a mixture of stainless steel and oak for seven months before being racked clean prior to blending and bottling.

Back in the 80’s Jack found himself in Kalamazoo Michigan looking for gleam of beer in a wilderness of American lite lagers. It was there that he stumbled across a little beer brewed by a man called Larry, and it was just the amber beer he needed in his time of crisis.
