“Thackrey is an eccentric, some say enigmatic winemaker, who crafts his distinctive wines at his home in the town of Bolinas which he bought in 1970 (“Time in Bolinas is so very small, the clock on the courthouse ain’t working at all….and the mayor of Bolinas is digging for clams, but folks in Bolinas don’t give a damn”) He likes to tell the story that he loved the view from the house but wanted to spruce up the fence, so he planted grapevines along its base which eventually produced grapes which lead him to….you can see where it led him.

92 Points Wine Advocate – “A collaboration between Napa’s Joel Gott and Dave Phinney, the semi-opaque 2012 Cotes Catalanes Grenache is a smoking blend of 100% Grenache that comes from the singular, black schist soils located around the village of Maury, in the Agly Valley in the Roussillon. Aged in French oak (a small part being new) and hitting 15.6% natural alcohol, this sexy, full-bodied, pedal-to-the-metal effort bears plenty of resemblance to the old-vine, 100% Grenache efforts coming from Chateauneuf du Pape. Kirsch liqueur, blackberry, toasted spice, garrigue and hints of vanilla bean all flow nicely to a seamless, silky, yet decadently styled red that has fine tannin, and a blockbuster, heady finish. It will certainly not appease those looking for lightweight aromas and flavors, but count me a fan. The oak is still present, so give it a year in bottle; it will drink nicely for another 5-6 years.”

Green Flash Soul StyleCitra, Simcoe, and Cascade hops are layered, allowing bright tropical waves of flavorful citrus and floral notes to break gently on the palate. Get stoked on a laid back single and ride a wave to soothe your soul. Appearance—Orange gold with bright white beer foam. Aroma—Very floral with tropical fruit including ripe mango, clementine, and a hint of orange blossom honey. Flavor—Starts with a mellow pale malt sweetness then transitions to pungent hop flavors with grassy notes and a lingering but clean bitter finish.
