2005 Valsacro Diore Red Wine Rioja – Rated 92 points Wine Advocate. The 2005 Dioro was produced from a stricter selection and was aged in new French oak for 12-14 months. A saturated purple color, it displays a brooding bouquet of wood smoke, pencil lead, espresso, truffle, and blackberry. Dense and loaded on the palate, it has gobs of ripe black fruit, excellent balance, and a lengthy, pure finish. It will continue to blossom over the next 3-4 years and have a drinking window extending from 2014 to 2025.

2009 – Sorrel Canyon Chardonnay – Sonoma This is another phantom label from the Wine & Spirits Guild – basically wine made from a higher end label sold for a fraction of the cost under a different label.
A brilliant, light-catching straw color. Framed with flavors of apple, sweet melons and citrus, it follows with an underlying hint of honey glaze and a touch of oak. The citrus follows in the mouth balanced by bright acidity and toasty oak. Barrel aging 29% New French Oak and 71% neutral French Oak. 100% Chardonnay. This is a terrific substitute to your favorite white Burgundy or Pinot Gris. Full-flavored but not tremendously heavy, it dances across your tongue and finishes clean and dry. Terrific with oysters and other shellfish, but also pairs well with most chicken and pasta dishes. Great alone too.

The 2010 A to Z Pinot Gris leads with bright aromas of tropical fruits (lemon, lime, lychee, mango, passion fruit and kiwi) as well as melon, ginger, lemongrass and wet stone. Succulent and juicy on the attack, the mid-palate is drenched with peach, spiced pear, baked apple, quince, hibiscus, white flower and mineral flavors. On the finish, the acidity wraps up the wine with a clean, fresh palate and lasting impression of a wine with great purity and typicity balanced by some richness and depth.

2010 Fess Parker Santa Barbara County Chardonnay – Rated 92 points Wine & Spirits. Here’s a steal; a cool-vintage chardonnay with flesh and zest. There’s a saline, gamey note that brings the flor of Fino Sherry to mind, an earthy undertone to balance the sweet kumquat and tart grapefruit pith flavors. Serve it with chicken braised with fennel and mushrooms.

2009 Martin Ray Napa Sonoma County Cabernet Sauvignon- Rated 91 points Wine Review Online.com This wine is soft and supple on the palate yet full-flavored, with layered complexity in the finish, and none of the off-putting sweetness that mars so many Golden State reds these days. Beautifully balanced, it has the stuffing to suggest successful aging, but there is no need to wait to enjoy it. You simply can’t do much better for $20 when shopping for California Cabernet.

Trappistes Rochefort 8- Brasserie de Rochefort is one of seven authentic Trappist breweries in the world. All of the beers they produce are definitely exceptional! The 8 is their Belgian Dubbel offering. It pours a ruby brown color with a large foamy tan head. Aromas of toffee, brown sugar, hints of banana and clove as well as bready yeast all fill the nose married nicely. On the palate the bready yeast comes through more prevalent but still does not over power the other flavors aforementioned. You also get a bit of plum and raisin in there. The body is medium heavy with medium carbonation and a smooth mouth feel. 9.2% abv 22 IBUs

Stone Arrogant Bastard- Stone is definitely high on the list for setting standards in American brewing. If you haven’t had it yet, Arrogant Bastard is a very hoppy American Strong Ale. It pours a dark copper color with about a two finger off white head. The nose is full of piney slightly citrusy hops, caramel malts and a bit of alcohol underlying. The palate follows suit pretty identically. It is a bit more balanced than the nose would lead you to believe though. It is medium in body and carbonation with a resinous mouth feel of a DIPA. Are you worthy?

Great Divide Old Ruffian- Yet another highly rated brew in the long list of highly rated brews from Great Divide. This barley wine is definitely an American style barley wine! Ruffian pours a transparent golden orange color with about a half inch head which retains nicely. Huge floral hop aromas immediately hit your nose as well as sweet malts and caramel. The palate is a bit more complex with flavors of caramel, some vanilla and oak hints, grapefruit, orange rind and pine with a bitter finish. It is medium heavy in body with light carbonation. 10.2% abv 90 IBUs

Spicebox Canadian Whisky- This whisky is unlike any Canadian whisky I have ever tried! It is a blend of mostly rye whiskys which are aged anywhere from three to five years in bourbon barrels. Then it is infused with extracts from vanilla and a variety of spices. They don’t list what spices are used but you get strong flavors of nutmeg, cinnamon and clove. Combine that with the vanilla and caramel notes as well as the peppery flavors from the rye and you have a nice easy to drink whisky even for non whisky drinkers. 35% abv
