Clark: Anne Amie Winemakers Selection Pinot Noir 2016
Rated 92 Points and named Editors’ Choice by Wine Enthusiast. “Supple and smooth, with satiny appeal, this is loaded with blueberry compote flavors. There are whiffs of tobacco and bitter herbs, and a lush finish that brings chocolate-covered cherries to mind. A stunning value.”
Henrik: Schug Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir 2015
Rated 93 by James Suckling. “Plenty of blue fruits and flower character here with medium body, dense and integrated tannins. Very complex. Fantastic value. Drink or hold.”
Chris K: Burgess Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2014
The 2014 growing season was marked by kind weather, a few curveballs and an abundant crop. The winter was one of the driest on record, but heavy rains before bud break gave the vines a well-timed drink. The dry winter produced berries smaller in size, but more concentrated with flavors, and an earlier than normal harvest showed immediate promise of high quality, gorgeous black fruit, gravel, violets, black cherry, anise, juicy palate with nice structure and velvety tannins along with chocolate flavors. Finishes with very elegant bittersweet tannins.
Maggie: Nikolaihof Wachau Muskateller
A garden in your glass! There is nothing coy about the bouquet of this wine – orange blossom, elderflower, bergamot, wisteria, the list goes on! For dry Riesling and Gruner Veltliner lovers, Muskateller provides a delightfully sassy alternative that is delicious to drink. This wine will pair well with many foods, but especially finds its place at the table with appetizers and foods with Asian flavor influences. It's a true honor to have this wine in Arkansas. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do! Austrian wines rock!
Roberto: Bell Sierra Foothills Syrah 2016
The 2016 vintage opens up with a dark brambly fruit compote, inviting sarsaparilla, and wonderful baking spices. The wine expands softly across the palate and the dark fruit flavors dominate the mid palate. The finish is long and lingering, a Bell signature trait of quality. A food pairing extravaganza can be had with this Syrah. It holds true to its Rhone valley heritage, and generously pairs with a wide variety of rich, bold flavors, from barbecue ribs, beef brisket all the way to being the star ingredient in beef bourguignon.
David: Terrazas Reserve Malbec Mendoza Argentina 2016
It has bright red color with purple shades. Intense aromas are floral and fruity with the presence of violets, ripe black cherry and plum. Its sweet and juicy mouthfeel delivers finesse, delicate tannins and an elegant finish of black fruits. Finally, it reveals a toasty and spicy character of black pepper and chocolate. Pair with Tuna Carpaccio and Red Fruits Vinaigrette, Tenderloin served with Mediterranean Ratatouille and Moist Semisweet Chocolate Cake over Mascarpone and Red Fruits Ice Cream.
Devin: Benton Lane Pinot Noir Willamette Valley Oregon 2014
If you need a classic pairing for your Thanksgiving dinner then look no further! Benton Lane uses 100% Estate grown hand selected berries. The aromatics have smoky cedar notes with rich black cherry flavors, candied fruit sweetness, a slight hint of black licorice and rose petals. This is an elegant pinot with amazing balance.
logan: Shannon Ridge Buck Shack Cabernet Sauvignon Lake County 2014
Named after a 100-year-old shed on the property of the Shannon Ridge estate, Buck Shack Cabernet Sauvignon is a delicious wine that’s perfect for a trip to deer camp or to drink at home before, after, with, or without a meal! It has ripe dark fruit flavors that are balanced by toasty oak and spice. Its structure is full bodied with a velvety texture and soft smooth tannins that won’t overpower your holiday menu.
Josh: Cragganmore 12-Year-Old Single Malt Scotch
This beautiful golden amber Scotch noses with a combination of sweet floral, aromatic citrus such as orange and lemon oil, hints of toffee with vanilla, roasted almonds, and gentle floral notes. Has a medium mouth-feel that’s firm and rounded. This is very malty Speyside with citrus notes, toffee, sweet light smoke, and sandalwood on the palate. The long finish carries through with a strong barley backbone and subtle smoke. Enjoy this dram on the rocks or neat, and it also makes a fantastic Rob Roy.
John B: Rock Town Bourbon Cream
Bourbon cream is considered a crossover spirit and can appeal to both whiskey lovers and dessert connoisseurs alike. Rock Town Bourbon Cream is made locally here in Little Rock. It has a rich caramel and toffee flavor with a smooth, creamy finish. Coming in at just 34 proof (17%abv) it is very delicious and goes down way too easy. You can enjoy it chilled, on the rocks, or pour it in a cup of coffee for an indulgent after dinner treat. This offering is a seasonal item produced only in the Fall and Winter months. Enjoy it while you can!
Colin: Lagavulin 16 Year Islay Single Malt Scotch
94 points Whisky Advocate. An old classic, but how do the newest bottlings fare? Rich, chewy, slightly oily texture. Deep peat, thick smoke, iodine, brine, charcoal, seaweed, tea (Earl Grey, Lapsang Souchong), and the aromas of a summer barbeque. Vanilla and light caramel soften the intensity, while subtle citrus fruit teases. Powerful, yet polished and seamless. After all these years, this whisky is still one of the finest standard-issue peaty, smoky whiskies! (Vol. 20, #3)
Chris M: North Coast Old Stock Ale
Like a fine port, Old Stock Ale is intended to be laid down. With an original gravity of over 1.100 and a generous hopping rate, Old Stock Ale is well-designed to round out and mellow with age. It’s brewed with classic Maris Otter malt and Fuggles and East Kent Goldings hops, all imported from England.
Josh L: Sierra Nevada Trip in the Woods Maple Scotch
750 ml bottle
It’s November and the holidays are upon us! With the cold weather moving in, warm up with this awesome bourbon barrel aged scotch ale. Coming in at 9.8%, this is lighter than your typical barrel aged beer but it does not skimp on the flavor whatsoever. The maple is very prevalent on the palate and the barrel notes are as well. This beer would go great with a slice of pumpkin pie after Thanksgiving dinner. Happy Thanksgiving!
Ryan L: Prairie Bomb
A stout with a name and reputation. A stout that’s known and loved. Prairie’s Bomb! is a true explosion of flavor with all the notes and complexities one loves from an imperial stout. The blasts of cacao and bursts of coffee. The waves of flavor as vanilla bean brushes through and sparks of chili peppers lightly greet the tongue. The gift giving season is upon us and holiday shopping is in full swing. For the beer nerd in your life, for the stout lover close to your heart; Bomb! Is the gift they’ll know and assuredly love.
