Vallana Campi Raudii 2010

Comprised of 90% Nebbiolo with Uva Rara and Vespolina, Vallana Campi Raudii 2010 is the perfect example of a wine that over delivers for the price. At $20 retail, this gem from Alto Piemonte comes right out of the gate with bright red fruit, tar, leather and rose. The acidity and current structure provide some insight into this wines ageability; 15+ years. Enjoy now or cellar for the next two decades.

Deadwood Tumblin’ Dice 4yr Bourbon Baytowne Private Selection

Age: 4yr
Mash Bill: 60% Corn, 36% Rye, 4% Malted Barley
Proof: 109.4

Dave Schmier is constantly proving that age doesn’t matter when it comes to his brand. Although this is MGP sourced, what truly matters is the palate of the individual making the selection. When tasting through a lineup of barrel samples, a clear winner stood out. The nose consists of toffee, vanilla and black tea. On the palate: Caramel and vanilla up front, followed by cherry cola, spice and oak on the finish. The alcohol is well integrated. This high-rye bourbon can go toe to toe with whiskeys twice it’s age. Excellent value at $50.

Charles Heidsieck Brut Reserve

Charles Heidsieck Brut Reserve

One of my favorite “Big House” Champagnes. The Brut Reserve is consistently one of the best House Styles – equal parts Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier. It consists of 40% reserve wines with an average age of 10 years giving it body, dimension and FLAVOR. For $52 you’re getting something on par with Grand Cru or Prestige Cuvee offerings.

2018 Schloss Lieser Brauneberg Juffer Riesling Kabinett

2018 Schloss Lieser Brauneberg Juffer Riesling Kabinett

Schloss Lieser is a classic producer from arguably the most classic vineyard site in the Mosel – the Brauneberg Juffer. Right smack dab in the middle of the Mosel, the Juffer producers ripe, classic Riesling every year. Juicy peach, honey crisp apple, apricot and Anjou pear, the sweetness is hardly noticeably with the super crisp acidity and slight spritz.

2019 Jean Foillard Beaujolais-Villages Gamay

2019 Jean Foillard Beaujolais-Villages Gamay

Forget the celebratory harvest wine, Nouveau, look for Cru-Beaujolais from top producers. One of my favorites is Jean Foillard. His entry level Beaujolais is tailor-made for any occasion. Juicy, delicious red fruit, with structure and some savory herbs, this is ostensibly adult punch.

NV Anthill Farms North Coast Pinot Noir

NV Anthill Farms North Coast Pinot Noir

Anthill Farms is consistently one of the best Pinot Noir producers – all the richness and flavor of the West Coast with the structure of Burgundy. The North Coast comes out of the gate swinging – ripe strawberry, juicy cherry, tart raspberry, pomegranate, a touch of forest floor. Huge lift at the end and super tasty.

Glassmaker Sauvignon Blanc

Glassmaker Sauvignon Blanc

A full and delicately nuanced bottle, the Glassmaker Sauvignon Blanc is produced at the company’s Hillside Vineyard in Mendocino County and is a shining example of a unique and high-quality skin fermented wine. Given the fact this wine has a bit more body than others akin to it, I believe it would stand up very well to any upcoming turkey feasts that need a beautiful bottle to accompany it!

Vichingo Costa Toscana Vermentino

Vichingo Costa Toscana Vermentino

A small production, certified organic wine that hails from the Tuscan region of Italy. Grape skin contact in the fermentation process is what provides this unique vermentino with its vibrant color and layered depths of salty, acidic flavors. The cute little Viking on the label is a plus too, and I’m sure he would love to attend anyone’s upcoming holiday feasts and assist in rounding off the meal with the perfect wine pairing!

21 Seeds Valencia Orange Tequila

21 Seeds Valencia Orange Tequila

First of all, I do not believe there is a season for any sort of beverage. Do not let anyone stop you from enjoying a fruity fizzy cocktail in the middle of December!! 21 Seeds produces tequila that is infused with bright and balanced flavors that complement the agave and make a great product to sip on its own. The brand itself is also vivid and fun, providing an inviting spirit that would both pique the interest of non-tequila drinkers as well as satisfy experienced ones.

Infuse Spirits Peach Vodka

Infuse Spirits Peach Vodka

Although there is certainly no shortage of flavored vodka products on the market, I would venture to say that a large amount of them are not very unique or exciting. When Infuse Spirits popped up on our shelves one day and I saw floating chunks of actual fruit inside - now THAT is exciting. The peach flavor in this spirit comes across very clean and true to how you would expect and hope the real thing to taste, not overly sweet but also not bitter or acrid. Great for a light, refreshing, and peachy drink!

Sidebar Zinfandel, Mokelumne River

This 14.5% Zinfandel will not let you down. The Smokey, spicy wine wraps potent blackberry flavors in black pepper, beef, and wood smoke for a dark delicious effect. This is full body, moderately tannic and nicely concentrated.

Quattro Mani Falaghina del Sannio

This southern Italian white is very similar to a lightly oaked chard. Pairs well with any spicy dish, shell fish, or even vegetarian food. A great $10 value. Bright acidity, pale straw color, medium light body. Lemons, apricot with a hint of elderflower. Oh my. Buy two, it goes fast.

Journeyman’s – Buggy Whip and Corsets

Journeyman’s – Buggy Whip and Corsets

In 2011, Journeyman Distillery opened the doors in a historic building that was once a Buggy Whip and Corset Factory. All their whiskeys are USDA organic and MOSA certified. It is also a 2021 Platinum Sip Award winner. Buggy Whip Wheat Whiskey – a barrel pick of Baytowne Wine and Spirits. It is made with 100% wheat and aged in new charred oak barrels, which is showcased as a dark bronze color in the glass. After you pry off the dark green wax seal, smell the whiskey in the bottle and you will notice a powerful grainy aroma, with an undertone of sweetness. The taste on the palate is a bit of caramel, earthy leather, and even a bit of nuttiness. The finish offers a sharp, long-lasting finish. On ice, Buggy Whip is even sweeter and lighter, but still offers a pleasant warmness. Overall, Buggy Whip Wheat Whiskey is an enjoyable change of pace from your bourbon or rye routine. It holds its own neat or on the rocks or could be used in a variety of cocktails.

Crop Organic Meyer Lemon Vodka

Crop Organic Meyer Lemon Vodka

The Meyer-lemon-flavored vodka is USDA certified organic. The nose is clean with an unmistakable mix of orange and lemon notes that is elusive to Meyer lemons. Intense and fruity, it masks any sense of alcohol on the nose. The taste on the palate is even better: very crisp Meyer lemon, tinged with just a little pineapple and marshmallow sweetness. There is a modest to light medicinal underpinning to remind you you’re drinking vodka and not liquid candy. Although it has many mix possibilities, it also drinks wonderfully well on its own. Wine Enthusiast gives it a 93-point rating.

Town Branch Bourbon Baytowne Single Barrel Pick

Town Branch Bourbon Baytowne Single Barrel Pick

While we have many amazing barrel picks here at the store this one is by far my favorite. It doesn’t present what I would consider standard Bourbon flavors. With a mash bill of 72% corn, 15% malted barley, and 13% rye the malted barley really comes to the forefront on the palate in an exquisite way. Think chocolate-covered milk balls, caramel, toffee, and stone fruits with very little bite for a bottle coming in at 108 proof. It’s a unique Bourbon experience in all the best ways at a great price point.

Aberfeldy 12yr Old Scotch

Aberfeldy 12yr Old Scotch

When I tell people I like Scotch the majority of them still think that Scotch must be smoky and they’ve already decided it’s not for them. I then introduce them to a Scotch from the Highland or Speyside region and their minds are instantly changed. The predominant Single Malt in Dewar’s, Aberfeldy 12yr epitomizes the Highland flavor profile bringing out stone fruits, cereal, vanilla, honey, with a hint of nuttiness and brown butter. A great easy sipper that can change your mind on Scotch and you’ll find yourself reaching for more than you may expect to.
