Jim Beam “Single Barrel” Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey - $35.99
From the distillery: “Our master distillers carefully select each barrel by hand—less than one percent are chosen for Jim Beam Single Barrel—ensuring the highest quality and craft. No two barrels are the same, and each is individually bottled, labeled and hand-numbered so that its heritage is unquestionable. Every glass is full-bodied and smooth with attributes of oak, vanilla and caramel. Sip it neat or savor it on the rocks. After all, it’s some of the very best bourbon our family has ever produced.” During our preview tasting, the Single Barrel was found to be rich, exceptionally smooth – yet bottled at 95 proof – with definite caramel notes fading to vanilla as mentioned above. The finish was medium-long and was considered an excellent addition to the Jim Beam products currently carried in our store.

2013 Chloe Pinot Grigio
Hailing from the cool Northern Italian Valdadige D.O.C.,Chloe’s 2013 Pinot Grigio is a classic expression of this timeless varietal. Alluring aromatics lead into an intense expression of the Pinot Grigio grape with a generously structured mouth feel. On the palate, Chloe’s Pinot Grigio displays flavors of juicy white peach, soft melon, crisp apple and floral honeysuckle with a subtle undertone of Meyer lemon.
2012 Chardonnay Sonoma County California
Chloe’s 2012 Sonoma County Chardonnay is crafted from grapes grown primarily in Sonoma’s Russian River Valley. Chloe winemaker Georgetta Dane has highlighted the structure and depth of this fruit by using new and used oak as a secondary presence, rather than the focus, to showcase ripe, clean flavors of fresh citrus, apple, and pear with notes of creamy butter and a hint of vanilla. The resulting wine is exceptionally well-balanced with sophisticated intensity, a creamy mid-palate and long finish. The opulent, rich flavors coaxed from the grapes with soft oak integration is achieved through a combination of stainless steel and oak fermentation. The wine underwent malolactic fermentation and was aged on oak, resulting in an elegant California Chardonnay with a silky finish.
2012 Red No. 249, North Coast California
The 2012 blend, Red No. 249, blossoms from classic grape varietals cultivated in prized vineyards on California’s North Coast to create an elegant, rich and complex red blend. An enticing nose precedes deep layers of expressive, dark fruit flavors blended with notes of rich espresso and spice on the palate. A full, luxurious mouth feel gives way to an alluring and lingering finish. Named after the 249 wine lots that winemaker Georgetta Dane tasted to achieve a sophisticated intensity of flavor, this wine shows soft, integrated tannins and structure imparted from new and used French and American oak.
2012 J Lohr Arroyo Vista Chardonnay - $22.99
WINEMAKER'S COMMENTS With bright, straw-yellow color and vibrant hues, the 2012 J. Lohr Arroyo Vista Chardonnay has aromas of Cornish apple, stone fruit and lemon, with cinnamon and allspice undertones. The Burgundian winemaking techniques, including alcoholic and malolactic fermentation in barrel with lees stirring and extended aging, contribute a complex bouquet of toasted brioche, crème brulée, and roasted hazelnuts. This plush and racy Chardonnay with complex aromas and flavors is balanced by palate-cleansing acidity. —Karl Antink, Winemaker
