What *Else* Are We Drinking Now? Sébastien Besson Juliénas

Seth has a Beaujolais for your Easter table. Sébastien Besson Juliénas This Beaujolais is super-elegant and classy while remaining approachable for everyone (even those who aren't familiar with the Gamay varietal). The grapes are hand-harvested at the perfect ripeness and fermented in both concrete and stainless steel. I tasted hints of raspberry and black cherry, a subtle earthiness, a touch of clove, and a little orange zest. It has a nice viscosity that is complemented by a bright acidity and smooth tannins. Great with Easter dinner and leftovers. Sébastien Besson Juliénas $39.99/btl ORDER ONLINE ___ (Order online [...]

What You SHOULD Be Drinking & Gifting Now? Leopold Bros Three Chamber Rye Whiskey Holiday Edition

Perhaps the geekiest distilled spirit contrived in the past 50 years! Leopold Bros Three Chamber Rye Whiskey Holiday Edition First, some history: For more than a century, American Rye Whiskey was almost exclusively produced in what was knows as a Three Chamber Still — a still that extracted not only distillate but, more importantly, unlocked oils and aromas hidden in the grains. The result was marketed as "heavy-bodied" — whiskey with complex flavors and a viscous finish. The last Three Chamber Still was destroyed just after World War II, thus ending a time-honored American tradition. Back to the present: [...]

*MORE* Haunted Wines of the Month from Dracula!

Don't forget about our October wines of the month, which are all haunted. Here are four *MORE* of them. As is evidenced by the extremely untouched photo below, Dracula keeps some very nice wines with him in his casket, and he holds his wine bottles between his pinky and ring finger, as is the Transylvanian way. Look below the photo to see what Dracula has to say about these four wines. And because we're not 100% afraid of Dracula, we carry these Dracula-endorsed wines (we surrounded the shop with garlic or rutabagas or something). "Pablo Claro Sauvignon Blanc, Castilla-La Mancha, [...]
