Purple Heart Wines – Napa Valley Red Wine 2014

purpleheartwineOur featured wine this month comes with philanthropic spin. Purple Heart Wines donates a sizable portion of their profits to the Purple Heart Foundation. Purple Heart helps military members and their families meet unfulfilled needs.

Currently we have Purple Heart Napa Valley Red Wine 2014. This California red comes lavishly packaged in a purple bag with a golden bow. The wine is a blend of 80% Merlot, 15% Cabernet Sauvignon,4% Petite Sirah, 1% Petit Verdot.

The wine maker’s tasting notes include:

“…..aromas of mulberries, plums and blackberries with hints of black licorice….lushly textured with notes of red and black fruits and hints of cardamom.”

With 88 points from Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate, and multiple 90+ point gold medals earned, Purple Heart is not one to overlook.

Green Flash Brewing – Palate Wrecker, Imperial India Pale Ale

PalateWreckerThis month’s featured beer is something we’ve been trying to get a hold of for months, Green Flash Brewing’s Palate Wrecker. A popular Imperial India Pale Ale, from San Diego, California. Although if you’re in Virginia Beach this summer, you’ll find a big Green Flash Brewing Tasting Room and Beer Garden.

Palate Wrecker, as the name implies, is meant to be as hop forward as it comes. The brewery claims this is achieved using,

“A complex double-brewing process of mashing and sparging with hopped wort and special hop layering.”

Palate Wrecker rates incredibly well online, currently sitting at 92 points on Beer Advocate, and a whopping 99 overall at RateBeer.com

We also currently have Green Flash Brewing West Coast IPA.
