Deschutes Brewery "Reserve Release - Cultivateur" Provision Saison aged in Oak Barrels, Oregon (22oz) (Previously $17)

SKU #1304337 91 points Wine Enthusiast

 Though technically a saison, this new release from Deschutes, a rustic and oak-aged Brett saison, can easily be considered a wild American ale. It boasts intense aromas of barnyard funk, hay and lemon, framed by additional layers of pear, underripe stone fruit, green apple, white melon, biscuit and toasted oak. Those notes continue through to the medium-bodied palate, which offers a satisfying core of pale-malt flavors as well as cracker, yeast and earthy spice. The mouthfeel is smooth, yet appropriately lifted by fresh acidity, while the alcohol is surprisingly barely noticeable. The finish is long, dry and spicy.  (9/2017)

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.
