2008 Terra D Oro Deaver Zinfandel

A warm Sunday afternoon out here on the Left Coast.  Got a 2008 Terra D Oro Deaver Zinfandel cracked open to keep me company on the grill - Cuban Pork will be on the grates soon.

Here's some propaganda from the Terra D Oro Website

The story of the Deaver Vineyard starts in the 1800s during the California Gold Rush. Italian immigrants brought Zinfandel cuttings from the East Coast and planted vineyards in the Sierra Foothills. The fourteen acre piece of the Deaver family vineyard used to make Terra d’Oro Deaver Vineyard 100 Year Old Vine Zinfandel was planted in 1881 but that is not the only reason the fruit is singular and exceptional. As vines mature they produce less but more concentrated fruit. The dry farmed vine’s roots continue to grow deeper into the soil as years pass and pull water and nutrients from multiple soil layers. Last but not least the relationship between the Trinchero family of Terra d’Oro and the Deaver family, stemmed in the 1960’s over a passion for Amador Zinfandel, and has since been one of loyalty and mutual respect.

Here's the Cuban pork recipe:

1 1/3 cups lime juice, about 14 limes
2/3 cup orange juice, about 2 oranges
1 1/2 teaspoons ground cumin
1 1/2 teaspoons ground dried oregano
1 head garlic, cloves divided, peeled, left whole
1 1/2 teaspoons black pepper
1 pork loin, about 3 pounds
1 teaspoon salt
1 onion, sliced into rings
1. Mix all the ingredients except the pork, onion and salt in a bowl. Let sit 10 minutes. If using a flavor injector, strain half the marinade into a bowl; add the strained garlic to the remaining half of the marinade. Use the injector to take in some strained marinade. Pierce the pork with the needle; inject marinade into the flesh. Do this all over the meat until the strained marinade has been used up, or the meat can't hold more liquid. (If you are not using a flavor injector, use a long thin knife to create deep gashes all over the flesh. Pour marinade over the pork.)
2. Place pork in a deep bowl or container. Generously season the outside of the pork with salt; pour the remaining marinade all over the meat, spreading the onion rings over the top. Cover well with plastic wrap; refrigerate for at least 1 hour or up to 24 hours.
3. Remove the pork from the marinade; place meat on a platter. Transfer the marinade to a saucepan; add the onions. Heat to a boil; cook, 2 minutes. Remove from the heat; allow to cool. Puree in a blender until smooth. The marinade is ready to be used as a basting liquid.
4.  Grill the sucka.

Everyone have a great Sunday.

Ruhstaller Captain California Black IPA

A hot day out here on the left coast - time for a beer!  Cracked open a Ruhstaller Captain California Black IPA to quench my thirst - Caramel, Chocolate and hints of coffee with a citrus nose (grapefuit, orange and melon) worked great on the palate and the 7.3% is working great on my disposition. I had the 1881 ale earlier this year - Ruhstaller 1881 Red Ale, but the Capt. hadn't been available in the last few months for some reason and I was happy to find it at my local Beer Shoppe.  That Beer Shoppe is just down the street from a couple of Record stores too, so picked up the MC5, Joey Ramone and Ryan Adams 7" in honor of Record Store Day.

Here's the website for the beer -  Ruhstaller

Check out my review over at Beer Advocate - Capt. Ruhstaller


PS - got to tour the Brewery at the University of California at Davis yesterday and had a blast learning about the facility and the great studies that are on-going.  If you enjoy any of the thousands of craft brews that this country produces, you owe a debt to the efforts of Charles Bamforth and the crew at this facility - they have trained many a BrewMaster!

Check out the great pint glass I purchased below, the text is:

2009 Berryessa Gap Zinfandel

A beautiful sunny Sunday has come to an end and I'm celebrating the day with a glass of a product of that sun, a wonderful Zinfandel from the Berryessa Gap Winery.  Raisins, dark fruit and vanilla from the oak aging characterize this vintage from the winery in Winters, California.
Nice perfume too.  You need to stick your nose into this one!

Head over to their website and order yourself some ------  Berryessa Gap

A nice quote from the website's Blog - March 28th, 2012 entry:

"Sitting inside watching the “we need it” rain come down and prepare the soil for early spring growth. The buds of some grape varieties have already started growing and most of the fruit trees have blossomed. We are once again at the beginning of a season and anticipation is high. As soon as I write that it sounds redundant, seems I am always looking with hopeful expectation. We are pruning, we are harvesting, we are blending, we are bottling and we are meeting people. The list goes on. In this season of rebirth it is, perhaps, easier to get excited but reasons are always there. Pay attention to the things around you (they are wonderful) and welcome the future."
