What Are We Drinking Now? Boulder Creek Distillery Straight Bourbon

For the good of all of us, Fleur is sharing her Sacred Old Fashioned recipe. I adore Old Fashioneds all year round, but this blustery weather beckons for something a little more soul-warming, something fairly special, something oh-so-pretty to sip while accolading ourselves for getting through one helluva year: My Sacred Old Fashioned featuring Boulder Creek Distillery Straight Bourbon will soothe as well as celebrate. Bold aromas of nutmeg and clove will lure you into the most velvety, radiating, soft heat and lovely rounded oak...truly a beauty to behold. Sacred Old Fashioned . 2oz Bear Creek Distillery Straight Bourbon . [...]

What Are We Drinking Now? Leopold Bros Aperitivo

Drew has embraced the complexity of Leopold Bros Aperitivo. The Leopolds’ take on a traditional Italian aperitif is beautiful, bright, and best of all…..BITTER. Grapefruit peel and coriander dominate the mix, but this light liqueur is complex. Backed by botanicals such as artemisia pontica, common to vermouth and absinthe, there is heady, herbaceous nuance in every sip. This stuff CRUSHES CAMPARI! Try it in your next Negroni or Boulevardier, or in a simple spritz with sparkling wine. And, second best of all (first best is the bitterness, if we recall — there will be a test), you can buy it [...]

What Are We Drinking Now? Land of Saints Grenache/Syrah

Try this blend of Grenache & Syrah that is even better than its way-cool label would suggest. This one is so good, I've had two this week. And it's only Wednesday. Seriously, it is that good. Nothing too fancy, just really damn good Grenache/Syrah from one of the best Grenache winemakers in California, Angela Osborne, who also makes A Tribute to Grace wines. Fresh, balanced, clean, and elegant; Pinot Noiresque body and fruit with a little more oomph. It was Meatless Monday at my house, and the Land of Saints Grenache/Syrah went perfectly with roasted delicata squash with flageolet beans, [...]

What Are We Drinking Now? Kellerei Bozen 2018 Kerner

Fleur is accompanying October's arrival with a northern Italian white. I am anticipating the forthcoming harvest with this resplendent bowl of roasted pumpkin Oaxacan spiced bisque (say that real fast one time), which is cradling candied hazelnuts, burrata, and THE most luscious of all the house-made sausages from Marczyk Fine Foods: pork blueberry!!! All of which is perfectly accented by the tart clementine, aromatic sage, subtle nutmeg, and finishing dried apricot pop of Kellerei Bozen's beautifully straw-colored Kerner. Welcome to October, my lovelies. Kellerei Bozen 2018 Kerner $26.99/btl

What Are We Drinking Now? A Boutique Tequila: Arette Artesenal “Suave” Blanco

Arette Blanco has been my go-to tequila for years, and this selection from their boutique "Artesenal Suave" line is incredible. The Orendian family has been producing high-quality tequilas in Jalisco since 1900, and master distiller brothers Eduardo Sr and Jaime hand-pick the finest organic agave to be fermented in concrete for their boutique line. The result is a standout blanco — clean and complex with some natural sweetness and fruit tones. HIGHLY recommended if you love the budget-friendly classic blanco in your margaritas — this one is a must-sip! Arette Artesenal "Suave" Blanco $54.99/btl

Back to school special! Parents need school supplies, too.

We here at Marczyk Fine Wines have been committed to finding the best wines you've never heard of for quite a while now. We have done it again with this affordable Spanish red blend. (When you see the price beneath the photo you're going to say, "Must. Have. This. Wine.") Here's what our General Manager has to say about it: "I am a big fan of chilled red wine. It has been the biggest revelation of the summer for me. I have been recommending a slight chill on red wines for years now. I went to do the same thing [...]

What Are We Drinking Now? “Wow. Just… wow.” Denver Distillery Gin

"Wow. Just...wow." — Heidi (and you, after tasting this gin) Here at the shop we are excited that we now carry Denver Distillery, a small-batch, grain-to-glass project. With summer heat in full swing, I have been enjoying their New American style gin with soda and a touch of lime. This botanical gin boasts nineteen flavors. On the nose it has floral tones of lavender and jasmine. In the finish it reveals notes of pink peppercorn and coriander. Enjoy this spirit's complexity with a simple splash of soda or tonic, but don’t be afraid to play with the many flavors it [...]

What Are We Drinking Now? “Warm… Warmer… DISCO!” Disco! Sauvignon Blanc-Semillon – Mrs. Mia Wallace

Whether you're a Daddy-O, Kitty Kat, Pumpkin, or Honey Bunny, this is one Disco that'll have you GETTIN' DOWN! This wine defines cool and crisp, with its brackish tones, subtle lanolin, and finishing spike of yuzu/kumquatiness. Can you dig it? Then check this out, baby: Pair that with garlic-crusted pork tenderloin topped with blueberry-rosemary crema and compote, which is on your plate next to seared shiitakes and red radish micro-greens topped with a creamy Sauv Blanc butter pan sauce, and your dinner service will go "Superfly TNT!" One more thang: Fancy does not equal difficult or expensive. This [...]
