Laht Neppur Piper Canyon Scotch Ale

It's a wonderful Spring Day out here on the Left Coast - hitting about 71 with a couple of rain clouds passing through - love this time of year.  I've cracked open a Scotch Ale that I spirited back in my checked bags on my trip to Walla Walla Washington a few weeks back.  Survived the trip, but it won't survive the afternoon as I've got a beef brisket slowly cooking away to accompany it.

The Scotch Ale is from the Laht Neppur brewery of Waitsburg Washington.  I picked it up at the Alehouse run by the Brewery located just around the corner from my hotel room and just a few doors down from the Charles Smith Winery tasting room I spoke of last week.  Had a taste of the beer at the Alehouse and decided to bring home a 20 ouncer to enjoy later - meaning this afternoon.

Laht Neppur is Gaelic for Drink To Life and the beers at the brewery run the gamut of styles, from the Scotch Ale that I have opened to a wonderful Peach Hefeweizen with a Stout, IPA, Nut Brown and Cram Ale in between.  They have a selection on tap at the Alehouse and have a selection bottled as well.  I don't believe the bottles have been distributed down in California or in other states, but will keep an eye open for them, as I did enjoy the tasters that I had at the Alehouse.

The color is of a dark burnt brown sugar with a nutty rock candy nose.  The flavor pops right on to the tongue with nuts, brown bread and that rock candy flavor.  Warning - this one goes down smooth!

2014 Charles Smith Kung Fu Girl Riesling

Greetings on this beautiful Sunday afternoon.  I've got a bottle of white wine open tonight - yes, you heard me right - no red on this Sunday.  The reason - well I happened to stumble upon a wonderful Riesling while I was up in Walla Walla, Washington last weekend.  The downtown is full of tasting rooms and the Charles Smith Winery Tasting room was just around the corner from the hotel that I was staying at.

Brought a couple of bottles from that Winery home with me and I thought I would start with the white.  This Riesling is sourced from the Evergreen Vineyard along the cliffs of the Columbia River in Washington where it is grown in the fragmented basalt and gravel silt soil (more on the rocks later).

The nose is full of apricot and honey.  Clear and bright, this wine tastes of tart apple and has a wonderful fresh peach layer as well.  This wine is off dry, not sweet and has some nice acidity that is balanced well by the Rock.  Yes, this wine has the Rock, as in the minerality that balances out the acidity so well.  More on the Minerality in the link below.  A wonderful wine that should go well with the Chinese food I've ordered up tonight.  I'm a little under the weather (but recovering nicely) so I won't be cooking tonight.   This wine will pair perfectly with the Spicy Shrimp Chow Fun that I've ordered.  The second glass should pair well with the cold meds and send me off to some much needed slumber.
