Terra Barossa Cabernet Sauvignon – Thorn Clark Barossa Winemakers

Our featured wine for October is a wonderful Cabernet Sauvignon from Australia. The 2013 Terra Barossa Cabernet Sauvignon from Thorn Clark Barossa Winemakers. This family owned operation has been around for six generations.

Thorn Clark have a reputation for high quality affordable wines, and Barossa Cabernet Sauvignon is no exception. The wine maker describes this wine:

“A varietal palate with primarily dark berry fruit characters and dried herbs. French oak spice adds to the complexity of the wine. The palate has long elegant tannins which balance the fruit and oak weight well. “

Terra Barossa Cabernet Sauvignon has been rated highly, including a 91 pt score from Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate. Their note’s include:

 “Aged in French oak, it reveals leafy black currant notes intermixed with wood, damp earth, and spice. This supple-textured, delicious red is best consumed in its exuberant youth … over the next 2-4 years.”

Rubaeus Pure Raspberry Ale – Founders Brewing Co.

rubaeusOur featured beer this month is Rubaeus Pure Raspberry Ale from Michigan’s Founders Brewing Co. The founders of Founders learned early on, that if they were to make it in this business, they had to brew big unique beers. Getting bold with their brews took Founder’s from near bankruptcy to one of the top ranked breweries around.

To create Rubaeus, Founders adds raspberries at multiple stages of the brewing process. Founder’s describes Rubaeus as the “perfect blend of sweet, tart and refreshing.”This easy drinking beer weighs in at 5.7% ABV, so be careful! For fans of fruit beer, Rubaeus is reviewing well, with a 97 point score on RateBeer for the style.

Voiles de Saint Tropez Rosé

lesvoilesOur featured wine for September is a spectacular Rosé from the Côtes de Provence of France. Wines of this region are typically considered some of the best of the Mediterranean region.

Don’t let the pink color fool you. The winemaker describes this Rosé as:

“A powerful wine with fresh aromas of citrus fruit, flowers, and spices.”

Voiles de Saint Tropez Rosé is made up of Grenache and Cinsault grapes. The winemaker goes to great lengths to emphasize that making Rosé is both an “art and a science.” The claim three factors are key: the selection of the grapes, consistent cold temperature through the entire process, and the duration of contact between juice and skin.

Supplies are likely to be limited, so don’t wait to0 long to give this one a try. Particularly if you’re already a fan of Rosé.

Sierra Nevada Narwhal Imperial Stout

narwhal-webFor September we’ve got an exciting Imperial Stout from Sierra Nevada named Narwhal, after the  massive arctic tusked whale. Why? Because Sierra thinks they’ve got a “monster” here.

The brewery describes Narwhal as:

“Featuring incredible depth of malt flavor, rich with notes of espresso, baker’s cocoa, roasted grain and a light hint of smoke, Narwhal is a massive malt-forward monster. “

Beer drinkers seem to agree. Narwhal currently sits with an “Outstanding” score at 92 points of 878 reviews. The consensus among reviewers is that this a great stout for the price.

Sierra Nevada also proudly points out that Narwhal is the type of beer that ages well. Try some now, and stick the rest aside to age for later. If you can keep from drinking it that long.
