2006 Umathum "Frauenkirchen vom Stein" St. Laurent Burganland  
Review Date: 4-3-2014
A truly extraordinary wine. Deciding not to filter has added to the enchantment of this wine, bringing with it more structure and nuance. Perhaps the best Austrian wine I've tasted to date. Serve this with a beautifully roasted leg of lamb stuffed with rosemary and lavender, sliced thin, and naped with a butter finished pan sauce. Bliss.

2010 Stadt Lahr Lahrer Kronenbuhl "BF" Spätburgunder (Pinot Noir) Baden  
Review Date: 4-2-2014
Tastes a bit older than it is, but still a very fresh, balanced Pinot, with medium tannins, that would be great with spaetzle and cheese.

2009 Vereinigte Hospitien Pinot Noir ***  
Review Date: 4-2-2014
An incredible Pinot Noir! I would take this over a lot of domestic Pinots. Beautiful balance and aromatics.

1980 Glenlochy 31 Year Old K&L Signatory Exclusive Single Barrel Cask Strength Single Malt Whisky 750ml  
Review Date: 4-2-2014
Really beautiful, mahogany and leather, cedar notes, butter toffeed almonds, and dried apricots. This is to be enjoyed on special occasions, with a friend from the same vintage (wink).

2010 Moulin de la Gardette "Tradition" Gigondas  
Review Date: 4-2-2014
The Grenache based Gigondas are such a pleasure to drink with simple, hearty fare. The 2010 Moulin de la Gardette Tradition shows ripe, soft fruit, and subtle floral aromatics. This would be great with a rosemary and thyme stuffed roasted chicken with pan fried potatoes and an enriched, butter finished pan sauce.

Dolin Véritable Génépy (Génépi) Des Alpes Liqueur 750ml  
Review Date: 4-2-2014
When I tasted this initially in August 2013 I was drawn in by the beautiful nose, and complex sweetness. I recently tasted it again in a Chartreaus flight in Napa at 1313 Main with Master Sommelier Jordan Nova. The first of three was presented on a cart, tableside, in lovely little eau di vie glasses. The most affordable of the 3, this was a lovely example of a more modern marriage of Chartreuse and Absinthe, and would probably be great to have on hand for cocktails like the Corpse Reviver #2, or making a replica of Blue Chair Fruit's Concord grape and Chartreuse jelly.

2008 Americo Nunes Seabra "Americo" Dão  
Review Date: 4-1-2014
This wine is really cool, with complex fruit, soft tannins, aromas of quince peels and laffy taffy, this wine at six years of age has mellowed and is drinking really well now, and is at an unbeatable price!

Amaury Coutelas "Cuvee 1809" Brut Champagne  
Review Date: 4-1-2014
Every time I taste this champagne I am blown away. This is so incredible and so unique. Aged in used Burgundy barrels, the makeup is similar to Krug and Tarlant at 80% Chardonnay and 20% Pinot Noir, but the results are purely Amaury Coutelas.

Review Date: 4-1-2014
