Painted Wolf Wines

Black Sheep

Cry Wolf Black IPA


This is a new beer launched to market on 6th June 2022 by the Black Sheep brewery.

It is a very pleasant black IPA looking like a porter or stout but with a strong hoppy presence.

The brewer says "Black malt, chocolate malt and flaked oats join Maris Otter pale malt to add roasty caramel and chocolate notes and gives the beer an intense dark appearance. Masses of Cascade, Columbus, Chinook and Citra hops create woody pine, biting citrus and bright tropical flavours".

To drink, it was as they say above. I thought the malt and hop balance worked well making sure the citrussy hops didn't overpower the malt flavours.

GG Kirchberg Spätburgunder 2013

Tart. Very tart. Needs air. Could be a Burgundy. I would let this mellow out or keep for 3 more years or so. Forest floor limes? Cherry. — 3 years ago

Mataro 2012

Prior notes apply. A raspberry and a tarry note. An excellent expression of old vine Mataro (Mourvèdre) from the Barossa Valley. Fine sandy tannins. Made by Andrew Caillard MW who also painted the very attractive label. — 2 years ago

Label reminds me of Deisen - ever had her wines? (Believe she does Mataro) she’s an artist who also makes very delicious wines

@ES Faiello I do remember Deisen wines and her attractive labels and wines however I have not seen her wines for several years - not sure if Deisen still exists.

Vine Hill Ranch

Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

The 2016 Vine Hill Ranch Cabernet Sauvignon is a drop dead stunning wine from the Phillips and their talented team of Mike Wolf and Françoise Peschon. This majestic Cabernet bursts opens to seductive aromas of dark currants, blueberries, spices, graphite, iron, violets and a touch of sage all emerging from the glass. On the palate this is equally as impressive, as it boasts a gorgeous full body that shows incredible depth, with a resonating core or ripe dark fruits that expands beautifully through the long polished finish. This is one of the most compelling wines from this fabulous vintage, and readers should not hesitate to get their hands on this years exceptional release from VHR. — 3 years ago

Napa by N.A.P.A Michael's Red Blend 2013

Notes of black cherry and vanilla on the nose. A little acidic at first but softens up as it sits with lots of fruit. I’m hoping that drinking out of my own hand painted Packer glass will bring lots of luck tonight for my team! 🍷🏈🧀 — 4 years ago
