2014 Priest Ranch Grenache Blanc

A rare example of a 100% Grenache Blanc from California, the wine begins with rose-petal aromas, followed by astringency, balance, and minerals—along with crisp white-nectarine notes and a finish that

2013 Murrieta’s Well The Whip

Grassy, bright citrus notes remain on this wine from the aroma to the finish, with some honey and cantaloupe mid-palate, then grapefruit on the finish.

Perennial Regalia

Inspired by Belgian-style saison and incorporating special additions of wheat, spelt, and Brettanomyces, Perennial Regalia also offers the malt complexity of a French bière de garde.

Prairie Hop

Imbibers tend to lose track of the higher ABV here, as the overall package feels lean—bright and vibrant on the tongue.
