2012 Glen Carlou Chardonnay Paarl South Africa
Review Date: 1-29-2014
Crazy value in this South African Chardonnay: rich, Meursault-like quality with butter, apple, vanilla and an interesting nutty note. Well-balanced with medium-plus acidity. Insanely good for $12.99!

Lot 40 Single Pot Still Canadian Rye Whisky 750ml

All the spice and flash of Rye that I love, with a vanilla, caramel, clove and cigarbox undernote with a soft, sweet finish. AWESOME!

2010 Lambuena Crianza Ribera del Duero
Review Date: 12-11-2013
Red cherry, red currant, red plum, cassis, and notes of coconut from the American oak, the Lambuena Crianza has medium plus acidity and medium tannin. Organically farmed grapes. Bright, fresh and very drinkable! I have been waiting for the Lambuena wines to arrive for what feels like forever! As our first Direct Import from Ribera Del Duero, I couldn't be more proud of how these wines are showing! Salud!

Bruno Michel "Les Roses" Brut Rosť Champagne
Review Date: 10-26-2013
Every time I taste this Champagne, I want to sit and linger with it for the rest of the afternoon. It's a totally nerdy rose, unlike anything else we have. Barrel fermented, all Pinot Meunier and aged in bottle for a year, this particular bottling is all from 2006 fruit. Red cherry, spice, vanilla, leather, funky earth with medium plus acidity and a long finish. What a fabulous, fun rose Champagne!

Crabbies Ginger Beer, England 11.2oz
Review Date: 9-3-2013
My go-to closing beer! When my colleagues are sipping brews from our unique selection, I sip my Crabbie's. This puppy tastes like alcoholic, fresh ginger ale. I love it! Zesty, fresh ginger with hints of citrus, I drink this whenever I can! Y-U-M!

Louis Bouillot Cremant de Bourgogne "Perle d'Aurore" Brut Rosť
Review Date: 9-3-2013
Man, I love this wine. I had this again the other evening with pank-crusted salmon and a spinach salad, and it was light, pretty and delicious. Soft raspberry, strawberry and citrus with the tiniest hint of sweetness. The acidity really worked with my salmon's fattiness. Of course, the wine's pink sparkly glimmer on the dinner table in my wine glasses added to the ambiance. Stock up for birthday celebrations, brunch, baby showers, or just because it's a Tuesday night!

Caves Messias Santola "Crab Wine" Vinho Verde
Review Date: 9-1-2013
Love bright, fresh, affordable Vinho Verde? This is simply delish! Super low alcohol at 9%, this vinho verde is slightly fizzy, with notes of apple, pear and lime zest with fresh minerality and lots of zip. Stock up- this one has been flying out of the store in the hands of every staff member! (Including me!)

This wine is drinking beautifully right now. Stewed red cherry, warm saddle leather, earth, mineral, sandalwood with great acidity, even at 37 years old. Well-balanced, elegant, fine tannin. An incredible value for older Chinon. A rare treat.

Rusty Blade K&L Exclusive "Cask A" Single Barrel Cask Strength Barrel-Aged Gin 750ml
Review Date: 5-15-2013
Fans of past bottlings of the Rusty Blade rejoice- this is your baby, back again! All that wonderful gingerbready goodness, clove, nutmeg and cinnamon with sweet juniper flashing through. Doesn't even really feel like Gin. Y-U-M!

Fleury Blanc de Noirs Brut Champagne
Review Date: 12-8-2012
Every time I try this wine, I wonder why I don't drink more of it! Apple, toast and mineral make this champagne from our friends at Fleury perfectly balanced and well-suited to food. Grown organically and biodynamically, the care that is taken with each bottle will shine through. Perfect gift or party bubbly for the holidays!

1998 Bodegas Casa Juan SeŮor de Lesmos Gran Reserva Rioja
Review Date: 12-8-2012
This is a gorgeous wine! Moving gracefully into its secondary characteristics, with stewed cherry, hints of leather and earth. Still had medium plus acid and fine tannins, leading me to believe this puppy will continue to age well for at least another 5-10 years. Drink it now after decanting, and you will not be diasppointed!
