Like Today - Ale Aged in Oak w/ Malbec Grapes - 9.5% ABV
- Macerated on destemmed Malbec grapes for 30 days before separation and aging in a single 500 L French Oak cask. Deep vinous threads of black currant, rich oaken vanillins, and dark cherry are balanced by black pepper, bruised sage, and petrichor. Bottled near still, enjoy at cellar temp or near 50*F

 **This is the second bottle released in a series of 5!!!!

 Each year, we are blessed with opportunities to work directly with San Diego growers & wine-makers to procure local grapes. In less than 3 hours from harvest, our grapes are processed and introduced to a meticulously constructed blend of young & old mixed-fermentation ales from our oak-aging program. A short maceration (20 - 30 days) allows refermentation and color-extraction to occur, producing a blurring vision of where beer and wine co-exist. 

 In the 2019 vintage, we were able to bring in whole-cluster Syrah (Campo Creek), Malbec (Emerald Creek), and Cabernet Sauvignon (from both vineyards). A large blend was designed to macerate all 5 varieties, thus creating a perspective of singular expression and shared influence.
