Ninety Acres' Choice of the Month:

"Wine of the Month"

Producer: Vallin
Varietal: 100% Syrah
Vintage: 2012
Region: Santa Ynez Valley, California
Wine Maker: Justin Willett
Minds behind Vallin: Dustin Wilson MS, Brian McClintic MS, Eric Railsback
 
History:
The word “Vallin” pays homage to the original settlers of France's Northern Rhone Valley, who were amongst the first to plant the Syrah grape and is also the name of the street where the famed Côte-Rôtie producer Domaine Jamet is located.  Domaine Jamet is favorite producer amongst these SOMM documentary stars and one of sole inspirations behind the Vallin label.
Vallin is collaboration among friends Dustin Wilson MS, Brian McClintic MS, Eric Railsback & winemaker Justin Willett.   Unified by a love of Santa Barbara County and a belief in the terroir’s potential, they aim to create wines that highlight the climate and soils that are unique to this region. All of these factors make this an ideal place to grow Rhone Valley grape varieties such as: Syrah, Grenache, Marsanne, and Viognier.
 
Description:
The wine offers on the nose bright, fresh red berries, savory herbs with balanced acidity and subtle spice on the palate and a lingering finish. 
 
Food Pairings:
Pairs beautifully with any beef, lamb, pheasant, or venison dish, as well as and hard mature cheeses 
 
Wine Director: Brooke Sabel
 

"Beer of the Month"

Beer:Quad
 
Brewer:Weyerbacher
 
Location: Easton, PA
 
Style:  Belgian Quadrupel
 
A.B.V. 8%
 
Description
Ale rich with complexity and flavor.  Brown sugar and dark dried fruits (think raisins, dates and figs) dominate this complex ale. Meant to be sipped, I recommend a snifter for this ale to help welcome the assault on your senses. If you have the will power, aging this beer for a few months or longer will show off its true potential.
 
Pairing
Enjoy with Ninety Acres Pan Roasted 14 oz Grass Fed Bone in Strip Steak or our Cheese plate
