2011 Tuella Douro Redux

Uncorked a Portuguese Red this afternoon.  I had tried this one back in October of last year, but found a bad cork.  Imagine my happiness when I popped the cork on this one, sniffed it and just a wonderful aroma of blackberries and plums emerged.  I'm happy to say that this bottle was fine and thanks go out to Dick and Lino for suggesting that I give this wine another try.

This wine reminds me a bit of a old vine Zinfandel, which is a great thing.  Red fruits out front, but a nice deeply seated earthiness and spice that you are left with in the smooth finish.  So glad I tried another bottle.

The Douro region of Portugal is centered on the Douro River, in the northeastern corner of Portugal.  This region produces most of the grapes used in Port, but there are many grapes that are vinified into non-fortified wines, including this one.  Terraced vineyards along the Douro River - yes - someday I will make it to Portugal.

This wine is a bargain at around $7 at my local Trader Joes.  Portuguese Red's - ya gotta love 'em.

Knee Deep Brewing Midnight Hoppyness

A fine Sunday afternoon at the Pinhead Compound and I've got an Imperial Double Black Ale to try from the kind folks at Knee Deep Brewing.  This one is called Midnight Hoppyness and I purchased this one a few weeks ago in anticipation of the Midnight theme for this weeks show.  I've heard great things about the brewery located in Auburn, CA and couldn't wait to try it.  I was a bit startled when I opened the bottle as I heard no gas escape.  Hmmm - not good.  Poured it into the glass and not even a hint of a head.  I think this one was capped poorly and the CO2 escaped - I bet some oxidation occurred as well.  The first taste was pretty nasty and the rest went down the drain.  Too bad - but hey - I'll try another Knee Deep at some point.  Good thing I had a few Sierra Nevada Torpedos handy - now that's a beer that never lets me down.

Ninkasi Maiden The Shade Summer IPA

Got my hands on another brew from the Eugene, Oregon based Ninkasi Brewery.  This one is called Maiden The Shade and is what Ninkasi calls a Summer Style IPA.  Nice label showing the goddess Ninkasi  enjoying a bit of shade on a hot summer day.  Ninkasi is the Sumerian Goddess of Brewing.  Yes, the Sumerians had a Goddess of Brewing - they were part of the Cradle of Civilization and you don't get much more civilized that a fermented beverage.  And what a fermented beverage this one is.

 Seven types of hops that leave a foor wide area of aroma when you pour this one.  The brewmaster at Ninkasi was supposedly going for the aroma of Ganga when he concocted the mix, but I don't get that.  What I get is a wonderfully dank spiciness with threads of citrus pine and some type of nut (Almond? Walnut?  Brazil Nut?).  Maybe I'm just nuts, but this one is very fragrant and it only registers 72 on the IBU scale. The taste is wonderful and it finishes very smooth with some nice sweetness from the malt - no biting bitterness that I expected with the IPA title.  I'll be going back for more of this.

Ninkasi Website ----->  the playful side of summer

Beer Advocate -----> very good
