Deschutes Brewery / Hair of The Dog "Conflux Series - Collage #2" Strong Ale, Oregon (22oz)

SKU #1279131 96 points Wine Enthusiast

 Another collaboration between two Oregon breweries—Bend’s Deschutes and Portland’s Hair of the Dog—this is a blend of Deschutes’ The Abyss and The Stoic selections with Hair of the Dog’s Fred and Doggie Claws bottlings. The result is a 100% barrel-aged ale, with forward notes of vanila, caramel and molasses atop fruity tones of raisin, date, fig and dried cherry. Additional layers of toasted oak, toffee, brown bread and bittersweet cocoa powder add depth to the rich and mouthfilling yet smooth and seductive palate. A pleasant dryness grips the finish, with a soft warmth and lingering wood-spice flavors It’s a well-balanced and delicious brew that’s certainly enjoyable now, though should mature and evolve well through 2021.

United States

- When people consider domestic wine, they normally think about the state of California. The fine viticultural Region within California, including the Napa Valley, Sonoma, Santa Cruz Mountains, Mendocino and Santa Barbara, are capable of growing grapes of world-class quality. But there's plenty of fabulous wine coming from other states, too. Oregon, Washington and New York are also causing eyebrows (and glassware) to be raised around the world.

- Highly touted for its Pinot Noirs, Oregon is part of the up-and-coming winemaking industry in the Pacific Northwest of the United States. Most of Oregon is directly affected by the climate coming off of the Pacific Ocean, giving it mild winters and wet summers. This makes it a difficult place to ripen grapes, but some say that the harder grapes have to struggle, the more complex they will turn out to be. Chardonnay and Pinot Gris are two important and successful grapes grown in Oregon.
