Banshee 2014 Sonoma Valley Pinot Noir

Banshee 2014 Sonoma Valley Pinot Noir  
Loads of cherry and red berry with hints of nettle, cola and smoke. A long and loamy finish with acidity only foggy mornings could bring. 
Cannabis Pairing:

A vaporized extraction gives a nudge to the Pinot’s tannins while bringing out an even sweeter profile in the Cherry Pie. This shining combination brings deeper complexity to each part. 

A water extraction brings an earthy depth to this bright and zippy vintage but unfortunately bowls over the fruit flavors leaving only the cola and smoke. To big an extraction for the medium body.
Resiliency: 9/10 Addictive, balanced and ready to drink now.

Affordability: 9/10 Amazing quality to price ratio

Lichen Estate Les Pinots

Lichen Estate 2014 Anderson Valley Les Pinots60% Pinot Noir, 40% Pinot Gris

  
Both tropical and saline this blend is simultaneously juicy and trippy. Its clean character is free of both oak and malo lending towards notes of grapefruit and lychee with a touch of nori. The slight effervescence balances out the citrus-skin grip leading to a long and languid finish.
Resiliency: 8/10

Affordability: 7/10

Cannabis Pairability: 9/10 The savory character of the wine begs for lots of fresh green terpenes while the saline and acid components provide lots of pallet cleansing.

Jean-Jacques Auchere 2015 Sancerre.

Jean-Jacques Auchere 2015 Sancerre.  
Peach, white nectarine and kiwi with flower buds and grapefruit alongside crushed granite. A long finish like a picnic in a patch of honeysuckle on a grassy knoll. Vibrant acid balanced by a gentle and dry minerality with a long finish.

Paired with a cold #owensvalley night the #Askanosie #DelTambo Ecuador Nib, while delicious, is best left or an after wine treat next to the fire. 
Resiliency: 9/10 Slight honey keeps you fresh.

Affordability: 9/10 A total deal.

Cannabis Pairability: 9/10 The dry finish with the juicy center allows it to blend with and play off of the lightly extracted terpene profile of a peach or stonefruit hybrid.

Prairie Flare Gose Ale brewed with orange and coriander.

Prairie Artisan Ales’
  
Prairie Flare Gose Ale brewed with orange and coriander.
It feels as refreshing as when Tommie’s mom brought fresh cut orange slices to the soccer game or a lime popsicle on a sunny sunday. 

Apricot with a nice citrus zing yet slightly earthy. Like a bright and dry wind in some far off place… Possibly the prairies of Oklahoma?? The finish feels a little like tea which is comforting and my belly feels happy like the brew is helping me to reestablish my flora and fauna. The only problem was how fleeting the head was.
One pint of 5.4% from Krebs Brewing Company. Krebs, Oklahoma.
Sour’s force you to drink in a new way. You’re not meant to buy a six pack, the flavors are so big you’re unable to guzzle, it makes you approach them mindfully.
Resiliency: 6/10 One pint is perfect.

Affordability: 7/10 It’s worth it for the joy of looking at all the cheeky little pictures. Reagan in a box, a pair of butts, a leaping fish.

Cannabis Pairability: 10/10 The piney woodiness from the cannabis makes it morph into a dry champagne. It amplifies the reach and the tanginess of the sour for an incredibly heady and exciting pairing.

Dopeness: 8/10

Algorithm Coffee’s Yemeni Pour-over

Algorithm Coffee’s Yemeni Pour-over  
Musk, vanilla and cardamom it tastes dry, almost dusty. With a hint of green bell pepper it has very deep spicy notes with an acidity that takes a second to peep its head up. It reminds me of an Indonesian light roast possibly because of washing techniques. While understated it’s also very interesting.
Resiliency: 7/10 Enjoyable novel drinking, worth a try.

Affordability: 6/10 On the premium side.

Cannabis Pairability: 7/10 It would be greatly enhanced by most earthy, herbaceous, woody and/or landrace strains that would amplify the roast’s spice notes.

White Label at the Corner Store

  
Fern enjoying a bit of corner shop Vein Vidi Vici Sauvingnon Blanc. White label tropical with pineapple notes for slightly funky drinking. 13% of Bulgarian enjoyment on the banks of the Black Sea? Nope, San Francisco CA.
Resiliency: 8/10 Smooth drinking.

Affordability: 9/10 White label love!

Cannabis Pairability: 8/10 Pair with something like Pineapple Kush which would amplify the tropical notes but with its earthy and butter sides ground out the honey in the wine.

Reinaert Flemish Wild Ale

Reinaert Flemish Wild Ale  
A wheatcake baked in a barn by weathered ranch hands and it makes you feel nostalgic for what has been. What more could you expect from “three times fermented with two yeasts including Brettanomyces”? Explosive head, spiced on the nose, funky herbal flavor with notes of hay, Manuka honey and lemon rind makes for an enjoyable foggy day on the Northern California coast.
Resiliency: 6/10 Take it easy skipper.

Affordability: 6/10 Flemish wild ale with a muselet… Need I say more?

Cannabis Pairability: 9/10 This strain begs for a juicy sweet citrus strain like Lemon Haze that will amplify the beer’s zestyness and square off with its funky nature.
