Taittinger Brut La Franšaise Champagne 
Reims, France

 Taittinger Brut La Franšaise is a blend of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier wines from at least 35 villages. The high proportion of Chardonnay (40%) is unique among fine nonvintage Champagnes, giving elegance and freshness to the wine. The aging of Brut La Franšaise for almost four years more than doubles the legal minimum of 15 months. This extra time in the cellars allows the wine to reach the peak of aromatic maturity, and the result is a delicately balanced Champagne, known for its consistently excellent quality.

 

This wine has a subtle, pale gold color with fine, persistent bubbles. It is delicate, with aromas of peach, white flowers, vanilla pod, and brioche on the nose and flavors of fresh fruit and honey on the palate.

2013 La Crema Pinot Gris   

Russian River Valley, California 

 

The 2013 vintage opens with bright aromas of lemon zest, complemented by more subtle notes of honeysuckle, Asian pear and spice. The balanced, broad palate is layered with flavors of ripe apricot, lemon drop and cantaloupe, with Monterey's classic mineral undertones of wet riverstone.

2013 Belle Glos
Clark & Telephone Pinot Noir 
Santa Maria Valley, California

The color is a rich scarlet-red, with opulent aromas of blackberry, black cherry, cinnamon, nutmeg and a hint of caramel. The palate comes alive with flavors of ripe raspberries, strawberry jam, a dense blackberry core, warm gingerbread, and a hint of toffee. It is perfectly balanced with refreshing acidity, plush weight on the mid-palate and a wonderfully supple texture. The expansive fruit flavors carry through to a long, pure and persistent finish.

Farrier Presshouse 2010  

Alexander Valley, California 

 

This red wine blend has a decidedly Alexander Valley personality--full of character. Presshouse is a soft, rich and robust blend of cabernet sauvignon and franc, with a small amount of merlot and carmenere. The nose immediately captures your attention: pencil shavings, sandalwood, dried orange rind and black currant over lush, ripe blueberry. The palate is deep and firm, with savory characters that invite Bordelaise comparison.

Temperance Gatecrasher  
English Style IPA 
Evanston, IL USA 

Gatecrasher's aroma is lush and malt forward but remarkably light on its feet--a bit of jasmine and violet out front, plus apricot, cherry, toast with marmalade, and bit of milk chocolate and caramel flan.

 

On the palate this beer is full-bodied and genteel. Its flavor begins with a subdued sweetness like stewed peaches and honey, scuffed up with toasty malts, then finishes with a careful prickle of herbal bitterness. It's luxurious aftertaste is like creme brulee and iced tea, both silky and pleasantly astringent.

1906 Reserva Especial 

Galicia, Spain

 

Prepared from toasted malts and hops of the "Perle Hallertau" and "Nugget" varieties that give aroma, dark amber color and distinct flavor to the malts. The head is abundant and creamy, which keeps throughout the drink and leaves the characteristic "Belgian lace" latticework on the sides of the glass. The effect of the alcohol is perceptible, mild and warm, without the roughness of higher alcohols.

 

1906 strikes a distinctive balance between flavor, drinkability and strength.
