2012 Sobon Estates Rocky Top Zinfandel

Rainy Day - perfect for a robust Zinfandel.  Got the holiday decorations up and it is time to relax and enjoy the fruits of my labor.  Ok - the fruits of the Sobon Estates labor.  Sobon Estates is one of my favorite producers of Zinfandel in Amador County.  Their Zins are consistently good and this one is from the Rocky Top vineyard.

Very dark and purple, this wine has a wonderful nose of perfume and intense dark spice.  On the tongue, Blackberries predominate with some vanilla and plum on the way to the back of the throat.  At 14.5%, this one warms all the way down.  This will go great with the homemade Minestone and fresh baked French bread that my wife is whipping up for the evening.

Brewdogs Punk IPA

Clear but cold day out here on the left coast.  Hibernating in the Pinhead Studios playing some Palooka.  Cracked open a beer that I recently found down at my local Trader Joes.  The Scottish origin intrigued me but it wasn't till I got it home that I realized that it is from the Brewdog folks - the same guys who are in that Brewdogs TV show.  I've seen quite a few of the episodes and enjoyed it quite a bit - especially the San Francisco show (where they captured fog and used it for the H20 in the beer) and the Portland episode (where they brewed beer going down the Mighty Columbia).

What a surprise when I poured out the beer and was greeted with a wave of tropical goodness.  The nose on this beer just hits you right in the, uh, Nose.  A very clear and light shade of amber, this one smells like a West Coast IPA, but looks like a Pilsner.  The taste is just as tropical with a very nice malt finish that begs you to have another taste.  Juicy, Juicy, Juicy - did I mention that it was Juicy?
