There's a local brewery here that puts out a Mead. Mr. Heinz is absolutely in love with it, although I can't stand it myself. It takes like I imagine paint thinner or nail polish remover would. We ran across a blackberry mead at the Made In Oregon store last weekend...I'll have to see if I can remember the name. It didn't sound half bad.

I had a glass of Dr. Z's or Mr. Z's Riesling at Devon Seafood that was freaking amazing. Googled for the name, but can't find it, and it's not showing on their wine list. wish I could be more help, but if you find it, drink it!
