There are a couple of things that Jack likes about Moonlight Meadery’s Currant Obsession. Firstly, its mead, and it’s in a can! The next thing being that it is 6.8% so you can have more than one and it won’t knock you on your backside. On top of that it is nicely balanced, being both refreshing, and exhibiting the rich flavor of currants. Try it this week as Jack’s beer of the week!

Southern Belle Red Blend 2017
Spain – Murcia

Wine Maker’s Notes: The blend is Monastrell 50% and Syrah 50%, aged in Pappy Van Winkle Used Bourbon Barrels Medium deep opaque purple color with dark red rim. Initial aromas redolent of blackberry and blueberry with underlying hints of red fruits give way to pleasing complex elements of vanilla and toffee. Soft, big, yet elegant mouth feel, rich, full body, density, superb balance and grip, lead to long, long finish, carrying intense ripe fruit and complex flavors. Soft, supple, dramatic, sexy wine with a compelling yummy factor that screams ‘drink me’.

Importer Notes: “The idea to use the bourbon barrels came over a dinner years ago that I shared with my buddy Julian Van Winkle at a Southern Foodways Alliance meeting at Blackberry Farm in 2001. It was simply an idea that came up in conversation. Hey, let’s do something together. What about putting wine in used Pappy barrels? Okay, I’ll send you some. I don’t know if you’ve ever seen old, used bourbon barrels, but they’re ugly. When the winemakers first saw the barrels, they flat out refused to put wine anywhere near them. But, eventually they did and the result was not only delicious but magical.”

Pasqua 11 Minutes Rose 2018
Italy

Wine Maker’s Notes: The Corvina varietal, which dominates in terms of percentage, was chosen for the floral aromas as well as the significant acidity it gives to the wine. Trebbiano brings elegance and a long finish; Syrah gives fine fruit and spice notes to the glass and finally, Carménère creates structure, ensuring stability over time. This a fresh, enveloping rosé with an intense and complex bouquet, created to accompany spring or summer evenings and more. Served chilled, between 10 and 12°C, it is ideal as an aperitif and as an accompaniment to the most delicate dishes.

Wine Enthusiast: Heady aromas of pink grapefruit, orchard fruit and crushed herbs follow over to the tangy palate along with juicy sour cherry and pomegranate. It closes crisp and clean, with a savory suggestion of white pepper.

Chalk Hill Russian River Valley Charddonay
California – Russian River Valley

Wine Makers Notes: Our 2018 Russian River Valley Chardonnay is round, rich and distinctly Chalk Hill. The nose expresses aromas of lemon, orange peel, and a hint of vanilla bean from the oak influence. This wine is balanced and bright with concentrated flavors of creamy lemon custard, poached pear, almond, and spice. Our Chardonnay is known for its long, rich and elegant finish, and this vintage is no exception.

After last week’s La Fin du Monde, one might think that things could get dark. This week, we are taking it to the next level of Belgian beer, the quad. Big brother to the Belgian Dubel, the Quad has all the toasty, dark fruit notes, with a more prominent alcohol presence. Straffe Hendrik Quadrupel ale is a fantastic example of the style, and is featured this week as our beer of the week.
