The wife asked me if I wanted a glass of wine immediately as I passed through the door last night. Neither of us is a wine person, so I was surprised by the suggestion. Of course I replied no. I knew she wouldn’t ask for a beverage if she really didn’t want to share something, maybe just for the sake of sharing a conversation over a glass.
Thinking quickly, I headed for the cellar (of course that is the basement) for a bottle of something wild. The wife has always appreciates something from Russian River Brewing Company. What better than a bottle of Supplication.
Popping the cork, as quietly as possible, the snifter pour, when presented to my wife, surprised her. A huge smile was all I needed to know that the beer hit the spot.
The tart cherries lead this beer, making it very enticing. The tart mix with the dry finish keep bringing you back until the unfortunate end of a 375ml split bottle. I believe I have another bottle left. I don’t think they ever last long enough to be “aged”. I am sure the last one will meet a similar fate. Enjoy!
