2014 Domaine des Coutures "l'Epanouie" Saumur-Champigny
Review Date: 03-17-2017
Besides being delicious and fun this wine is an example of wine that has a good balance of red fruit flavors, acid and spice. It is medium bodied, elegant and layer with the flavors working together to create a wine that is well worth the price.

2009 Franck Bonville "Millesime" Brut Blanc de Blancs Champagne
Review Date: 03-17-2017
I have not had a Champagne form Franck Bonville that is not well crafted and delicious. The 2009 is no exception to this experience. It has the nice aromatics of a Bonville Champagne, is nice and dry, and has nice medium body. It is layered and shows a lite touch of round mid palate flavors.

This is a fantastic wine. It offers nice Gamay dark fruit flavors that are both juicy and balanced out with a nice crisp finish and a touch of earth. It is complex and packed full of pleasure. I think that it will go well with pork and lamb.

2013 Joseph Swan "Saralee's Vineyard" Russian River Valley Pinot Noir
Review Date: 03-13-2017
A classic Pinot Noir beauty. This wine is not big and lusty with a deep red color. It is lighter colored and delicate with seductive and expressive aromas that are absolutely lovely. In the mouth it is elegant with complex red fruit flavors that are layered and dry. Try it alone or with lighter foods.

1996 Arran 20 Year Old "Old Particular" K&L Exclusive Single Barrel Cask Strength Single Malt Whisky (750ml)
Review Date: 03-10-2017
This is for those who want a rich and mouth-filling single malt. It is big, creamy and fruity with plenty of malt flavors. There are undertones of island influence with a kiss of salt. Even with all of the juicy richness there is a nice dry finish. This Arran does not have a smoky and peaty profile.

Young Coal Ila always seen to be expressive and lively and this bottling is no exception. In the nose there is smoke with a very subtle fruit undertone. In the mouth there are fruit, malt, salt and smoke flavors. The sherry influence is very light providing a kiss of fruit. A nice long finish where the salt flavors show completes the package.

Review Date: 03-03-2017
This bottling is the first time that I have had a chance to taste something from this distillery. If this cask is what Allt A'Bhainne has to offer, hopefully we can see more in the future . It shows the sherry barrel aging, offering soft and round dried fruit and caramel flavors. This is topped off with seductive aromas of honey and bee's wax. It is on the dry side with a nice long finish. All of the flavor components come together to create an exceptional single malt.
