Distant Cellars Ten 88 Red Blend Port

A wonderful fall day - temps in the 70's and lotsa sun.  I've opted for a small bottle of Port this Sunday.  Small, as in this Distant Cellars Ten 88 375ml bottle.  Port as in a red blend of Old Vine Zinfandel, Cabernet Franc and Pinotage fortified with grape spirits in the style of Old World Ports.
I was very happy to find this bottle down at my local Trader Joes as the Distant Cellars website tells me that the wine is sold out - they must have sold a bit to TJ's.

This one pours an inky purple and has some very nice red fruit and spice notes on the nose.  The taste is wonderful with blackberry, plum and vanilla.  At 18.4% the warming of the mouth and throat is wonderful.  Nice smooth finish - this should go well with the Dark Chocolate dipped strawberries that my daughter has prepared for dessert.  Cheers!

Ninkasi Sleigh'r Dark Doüble Alt Ale

Well, a wet Halloween didn't dampen any Spirits around here - in fact I'm ready for Christmas already as Ninkasi just released their Seasonal ale - the Sleigh'r Dark Doüble Alt Ale.  Grabbed a six pack at my local market and have been working my way through them.  Nice dark color and a small but stout head, this one has some wonderful malt flavors.  Not very much hop bitterness, so the chocolate and toasted almonds flavors predominate.  Despite the Christmas theme, this is not one of those flavored beers, just a wonderful Alt (an Ale that is cold fermented).

Ninkasi Website ----- > deep, toasted malt flavor

2012 Peirano Estates Immortal Zin Old Vine Zinfandel

A Rainy Weekend out here on the Left Coast - time for some Deep Dark Red.  This afternoon, I've uncorked an Immortal Zin from the Peirano Estates Vineyards.  The appellation is Lodi and they market this one as an Old Vine Zinfandel - meaning absolutely nothing.  Yes, the term is loosely used for vines that are old.  How old is anyone's guess.  The "official" guidelines for calling a Zinfandel Old Vine is 50 years, but this just a guideline set up by ZAP (Zinfandel Advocates & Producers).

This one has the characteristic qualities of a Zinfandel made from grapes grown on an Old Vine.  Some nice Port notes with a mix of Rhubarb and just enough chiseled tannins to give it balance and character.  The fruit shines bright and the one thing that I am loving about this wine is the finish.  Goes out like a ghost, leaving you to taste the food that you are eating with the wine.  Tonight I have a wonderful fried quinoa and braised short rib dinner -this will should pair very nicely with it.
