On his travels Jack liked to record the various new flora and fauna he encountered. One of the most interesting was the Lagunitas Citrusinensis, a pale-ish ale brewed with Sanguinello Blood oranges. Now that’s his type of plant life! It’s also the beer of the week!

2016 Berton Vineyard The Black Shiraz
Australia-Limestone Coast

Winemaker’s Notes: The Black Shiraz is a bold example of Australian Shiraz with deep color and aromas of blackberry and plum over toasty vanilla and spicy oak. The palate is full flavored and intense with rich plum, blueberry, and mocha notes. The tannins are ripe and dense giving great structure and length to the palate.

2015 Famille Brechet Plateau Des Chenes Lirac
France-Lirac

Winemaker Notes: Our interpretation of the beautiful soil of LiracFeaturing an intense purple colorthis wine develops powerful black fruit aromas and a slight hint of smoke and spice.

90 Points Robert Parker: The 2015 Lirac Plateau des Chênes is a modern, somewhat oaky example of the appellation, but it does combine wonderfully pure cherry fruit with vanilla and cedar, leaving some woody tannins in its wake. Drink this medium to full-bodied blend of Grenache (75%) and Syrah (25%) over the next 5-8 years.

90 Points Wine Spectator: Offers a fleshy feel, with dark plum and raspberry coulis flavors racing along, lined with subtle graphite and black tea notes. Shows a dusting of cocoa at the very end. Solid. Drink now through 2021.

Jack never fully understood how “Christmas in July” was a thing. It is too hot to dress up in long sleeves and pants in the middle of the summer. He would much rather battle the heat with a tasty Hefeweizen. So he made Ayinger Brauweisse the beer of the week!

2016 Arnaldo Caprai Grecante
Italy-Umbria

Winemaker Notes: Grecante is a fresh, crisp wine enjoyed chilled at a temperature of 50 degrees F as an aperitif wine or consumed with seafood, veal, or poultry dishes.

91 Points James Suckling: A dense white with a lightly chewy texture and lots of dried apple and pear character. Full body. Flavorful and beautiful. Tangy acidity at the end. Drink now.

90 Points Robert Parker: I’d definitely put this wine on a list of favorite value whites from Italy. The 2016 Colli Martani Grechetto Grecante makes your mouth happy as soon as the wine hits the palate. The bouquet is racy and zesty with crisp notes of lime, green papaya and tropical fruit. Despite the liveliness of the mouthfeel, the wine plays even stronger cards in terms of texture and fiber.

2015 Four Vines The Biker Paso Robles Zinfandel
California-Paso Robles

Winemaker’s Notes: Paso Robles Zins are bold, full-bodied wines with jammy fruit and pepper. Biker roars out of the glass with heady aromas of blackberry, black currant and spice. Flavors of wild bramble, sweet black cherry and jam follow while the finish is intense, layered and long. Biker will not disappoint when paired with pasta and red sauce, meat lover’s pizza or braised short ribs.
