Little Black Stone

Stone Brewing Co.

Fear.Movie.Lions Double IPA

Active, perfect yellow amber pushing orange hard. Big bubbled beige-yellow head that dropped expectedly quick, with so much action. Petri-dish lacing with cytoplasm graffiti. Huge pineapple nose of fresh-cut ripe fruit! Grapefruit tattoo, but little else. General lemon creaminess; a memo from mandarin. Pineapple rum entry with caramel and vanilla, baked apple, brandy-pear, classy touch of black pepper, allspice, ginseng, soft ginger slices, dried orange peel, anise, and lime. Heady and thick, cut, wiry, and sinewy, but overall, a calculated, choreographed, disciplined display of restrained power, lithe and evocative, with a smooth finish.

Two Vintners

Stone Tree Vineyard Zinfandel 2016

Tasting a more recent vintage, 460 cases produced, 16.7% alc/vol (seriously?!) So how does it compare with previous vintages? Purple red, highly extracted pigment. Wood in nose, wood, black cherry and black currant in mouth initially. Letting it breathe... Mint and blackberry flavors emerge after 30 minutes, and there’s got to be some RS in this. Well made, balanced, surprisingly not hot or alcoholic (which explains the sweet fruitiness), slightly syrupy in mouthfeel. A really nice wine. Reminds me why, growing up, Zin was always my favorite. Moderate chewy tannins emerge after 60 minutes, but acceptably so; they later dissipate. Fresh fig and tar emerge after that, greatness! Makes me wonder if, with global warming, the future of Zinfandel is here in the Pacific Northwest — a month ago

Kerloo Cellars

Stone Tree Vineyard Malbec 2017

120 cases produced. Inky, dense burgundy red, highly extracted pigment, Cherry, black pepper in nose initially with hints of leather and butter. Tight, black cherry pulp and seed flavors, coarse skin astringency on finish with length in the cherry flavor. A hint of something medicinal plus tobacco. After 90 minutes, cherry flavor deepens, vegetal-tobacco flavors recede, acid-bitterness persists. A serious Malbec, reductive, well made. Tannic style, worth aging or decanting. — a month ago
