2010 Curioso Malbec - A colorful reddish purple look leads to the flavors of fresh crushed blackberries and toasty/smoky oak. The jammy fruit keeps coming on strong with hints of spice and sandalwood on the back end. A delight with grilled meats and firm fish, like swordfish, broiled with a side of green beans and parmesan couscous. From Argentina

2009 Davis Bynum Pinot Noir Russian River – Rated 91 points Wine & Spirits. This buxom red has the full ripeness of candied black cherry flavor, balanced by savory tannins that keep the overall impression dry, almost austere. Those tannins have the scent and feel of fine leather, along with a forestry note, like bay. The push-pull of umami and sweet fruit will match braised duck with black mushrooms. Winery Price $35

2010 Ceretto Arneis Langhe Blangé Rated 93 points Wine & Spirits: " Fresh scents of apple blossom honey and beeswax add to the almond richness of this arneis. It’s as smooth as a round riverstone, clean and fragrant. The finish is distinctly Piedmontese in its earthiness; to match braised chicken or a rich fish stew.
Producer notes: "Arneis is a native varietal which produces a very fruity wine with hints of pears and apples. Its fragrance and flavor are also enhanced by the small amount of CO2 kept from the fermentation, which also helps to make up for the variety’s low acidity. Pairing suggestions: aperitif, fish, appetizers."

2008 Cantina Tollo Pecorino 'Terre di Chieti'
The Pecorino grape is a legendary story of a variety that was literally brought back from the brink of extinction. Not too long ago, just a few vines were discovered in a nearly wild state in a narrow canyon in Italy’s Marche region. Clippings were cut, and identified as the historic Pecorino grape, which was long thought to have been extinct. Cantina Tollo took the torch of re-establishing the variety as a missing piece of the local Abruzzese viticultural history. The origin of the name is that the grape variety was once a favorite snack of the sheep that were often driven through vineyard lands on their way to lower pastures. In Italian “Pecora” means sheep.
Aged in 100% stainless steel to best capture the pure essence of the grape, the wine has an expressive nose of peach, mango and candied rose petals. In the glass, Percorino is a full bodied wine with moderate and balanced acidity. Flavors and aromas of invigorating bright yellow fruits, wild sage, white ginger, white pepper, along with hints of almonds and hazelnuts make for a long, full mineral-rich mouth. Pure and vibrant! The structure is firm with the classic Pecorino trademarked flash of minerality…The best (and only) Pecorino I've ever drunk!

Uinta Labyrinth- This barrel aged Imperial Black Ale is part of Uinta’s Crooked Line series. It pours a deep black color with ruby hues and has a two finger mocha head. On the nose you get lots of roasted coffee, dark malts, licorice and hints of chocolate. Roasted coffee and bitter sweet chocolate dominate the palate at first followed by flavors of earthy oak, rye bread, hints of vanilla and finishing with subtle but present notes of licorice. The body is very silky and full, but not too thick with moderate carbonation for the style. If it didn’t say it on the label, you would be hard pressed to guess this one’s abv. 13.2% abv 56 IBUs

Dry Dock Apricot Blonde- This is Dry Dock’s summer seasonal beer and it is perfect for a hot day! The pour is a hazy golden orange color with a nice bubbly white head. The nose is full of apricots with a nice underlying bready malt character. The palate follows with big apricot flavor and bready malts but with touches of banana and a slight tart/bitter finish. It is a touch sweet but not cloyingly so. The body and carbonation are both medium light making it all the more easy to drink. Refreshing! Dry Dock does it again! 5.1% abv

Mikkeller Sur Munk- The brewers at Mikkeller are always trying something new. And this is a perfect example being a blend of a Belgian Quad and a sour Lambic. It pours a hazy reddish brown with a one finger white foamy head. The nose is acidic and sour with some sweet vanilla and caramel aromas. The palate is very complex with notes of sour cherry and acidic lemons coming through first followed by vanilla, brown sugar, bready malts and a touch of yeast funk. The body is medium with light carbonation and smooth mouth feel. This is definitely a unique beer worth trying. 9.99% abv

Rogue Hazelnut Spice Rum- Rogue has made a spiced rum for grown-ups here. They have produced a quality spiced rum that isn’t too sweet. The color is a pale straw blonde. On the nose the aroma of toasted hazelnut is very pronounced along with aromas of cinnamon and clove. Your first sip reveals flavors of hazelnuts, vanilla, cinnamon and a bit of orange peel. A medium-length finish begins a little spicy, followed by tapering warmth that never strays from its namesake flavor. I would suggest sipping this one on the rocks! 40% abv
