2016 Firestone Walker "XX" Anniversary Ale, California (22oz)

SKU #1283826 94 points Wine Enthusiast

 This selection, the 11th release in the brewery’s anniversary ale lineup, is blended together from 250 oak barrels containing five different beers (Parabola, Stickee Monkee, Velvet Merkin, Bravo and Helldorado), with participation from 17 local winemakers in addition to the brewing team during the blending process. The result is a unique, complex and oneof-a-kind limited release, with loads of boozy red berries, fruit cake spice, brown sugar, caramel and milk chocolate aromas and flavors. The mouthfeel is smooth and full, with a lingering warmth and subtle wood-grain tannins. It’s delicious now, but this should age well through 2020.

- 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.

California

- With the explosive growth that California's wine industry has seen the past several years, it's easy to view winemaking and grape growing in the Golden State as a recent phenomenon. And while it's true that California's viticultural history is brief compared to several European countries, this state's roots date back well over 200 years. Due to the enormous response to California wine within the United States and worldwide, there are thousands of excellent and diverse wines being produced within the state each year.
