Happy Jack

A wonderfully balanced pumpkin ale, with a hint of Oak and spices.

It is a liquid pumpkin pie without the excessive sugar.

The ale is single batch brewed with real Manitoba pumpkin, whole spices and aged Oak from Fort Garry Brewing.

@Trixie Trixie finding the perfect IPA is a life long scientific quest that will take years of research, countless testing of theories (beers ) and robust discussion and counter arguments. I only hope that I am worthy of the mission. I must press on regardless. Cheers 🍻 @Ron R

Crown Point

Estate Selection Red Bordeaux Blend 2015

Earlier this week, a rep for Crown Point wines hosted a tasting to show off a few of their newer releases. New to me, they are out of Santa Barbara and have the duo of Adam Henkel (former assistant winemaker at Harlan for 8yrs) and Philippe Melka (who came on starting with the β€˜15 vintage) making the wines.

I found there to be a noticeable step up in quality between the β€˜14 and this β€˜15...maybe that was due to Melka coming on board at this point. Where this differs from the β€˜14 is the added cab franc and petit Verdot. Smells a touch more herbaceous and crunchy instead of being a fruit bomb. It was also more chalky and dusty. Floral with potpourri and flowers give this better balance on the nose. The palate sports the whole fruit spectrum from red, blue and black but also has good acidity and tannin. Slightly savory finish of dark cocoa, peppercorns and cassis with underripe blackberries. Nice aging potential.

Sauvignon Blanc

Fiance and I enjoyed it. Nothing amazing but nothing bad to say about it. Perfect balance of sweet and dry for me and her both, and the flavors were present and not over bearing to two brand new wine drinkers. Can't really describe the flavors because I don't know how yet but maybe I'll try again one day. I give this one a toot! 6/10 β€” 8 days ago

The difference between this wine and the previous two is that this is their Cabernet (92%) with just a dash of merlot, petit Verdot, malbec and cab franc. Similar to the β€˜15 Estate Selection in how this is big and dense but still harmonious. Rich and dark fruits with graphite, cassis, and mocha. Big tannins with a dark and compact core...blackberries, underripe blueberries, violets, and dusty cedar.

Martellotto

Happy Canyon of Santa Barbara County Malbec 2017

This is a very tasty Malbec from Santa Barbara County.

Deep purple in color.

Fruit forward and dry with medium acidity and a tangy finish.

Showing black fruits with chocolates, oak, light vanilla, vegetables, tobacco, spices and peppercorn. Tasty and interesting.

Easy drinking and spicy.

Good by itself or with food. I paired it with a charcuterie board of meats and cheeses.

14% alcohol by volume.

90 points.

California Merlot 2017

Ruby hue with medium-plus saturation. Aromas and flavors of baking spice, blackberry, cassis, oak, strawberry, toast, and vanilla. Palate finishes quickly with a faint hint of leather and pepper. Soft, medium-low tannins; and medium-low acidity. Incredible QPR for a merlot under $10. β€” 2 months ago
