2009 Trimbach "Cuvée Frédéric Émile" Riesling Alsace
Review Date: 04-07-2016
Riesling fans will want to splurge on this one! The Cuvée Frédéric Émile is a beautiful Riesling drinking incredibly well and showing a deliciously liberal expression. Fueled with all the classic hallmarks -- aromas of petrol and citrus blossom, generous acidity and stony minerality, a mid-palate rich with tropical fruit and weighted texture -- this wine just plain delivers. The finish is a mix of zesty, salty fruit that just lingers and lingers. A lovely wine, well worth the $50 price point.

Review Date: 10-05-2015
Of the single vintage 2012 Capurro piscos, the Moscatel, an offshoot of the Muscat grape, has the aromatic scent of orange blossoms and honeydew. The mouthfeel displays medium richness and develops into a spicy, dry, smooth finish. Sip alone to enjoy a true farm-to-bottle experience with the unique personality of one of Peru's top varietals! Delicious stuff.

La Petite Marquise Crémant de Loire Brut Rosé
Review Date: 06-27-2015
No one's going to burst your bubble here. If you have Champagne taste on a shoestring budget, this might be the perfect antidote. With a killer price point, fun flavors of strawberry-orange, and a tart lively finish this bottle is an amazing value and super versatile. This would be the perfect choice to accompany a bucket of fried chicken, bring to a pancake brunch or just sip while binge watching Orange is the New Black.

Decadence on a budget! Here's a delightfully rich Champagne with an aroma of a freshly baked baguette, lemons and herbs. It's taste is plush and broad at one end and then fresh and lemony, grapefruity at the other leaving a well balanced round finish. This would be a top pick for an indulgent Champagne breakfast or a simple brunch time toast! Santé

Rare Wine Company "Historic Series - New York" Malmsey Madeira
Review Date: 03-23-2015
Here's an absolutely delicious treat and a lovely example of a classic sweet Madeira made from the Malvasia grape. Rich in color and luscious in body with notes of toasted hazelnuts, toffee and dates. This would make an excellent pairing with any nutty dessert.
