Vavasour Sauvignon Blanc 2010
90 Points - International Wine Cellar, September/October 2011
"Incisive aromas of grapefruit, chili pepper, quinine, cilantro and minerals. Then sweet, ripe and creamy in the mouth, with noteworthy concentration to the grapefruit pith and exotic fruit flavors. Tactile and dusty..." -Stephen Tanzer
Les Vignerons de Correns Rose Croix de Basson Provence 2010
This product is certified organic! Hell, the mayor has gotten the entire village certified organic, for all of its produce, no kidding!
"This rosé is a blend of Grenache, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cinsault. It has an intense nose of wild strawberries. A note of honey can be detected amidst the fruity aromas..."
Chateau Haut-Surget Lalande-de-Pomerol 2009
89 Points - Wine Spectator, Web Only 2012
"Smoky, toasty notes give this red a modern feel, with its sweet black fruit flavors and firm tannins. It's quite round, yet fresh, nicely focused, with a spicy finish..." -Thomas Matthews
Peju Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 2007
88 Points - Wine Spectator, December 2011
"Full-bodied, deep and spicy, complex, focused and persistent, with aromas of ripe plum and cherry that firm up nicely..." -James Laube
Tait The Ball Buster 2009
90 Points - Wine Advocate, December 2010
A blend of 73% Shiraz, 15% Merlot and 12% Cabernet Sauvignon, Tait’s 2009 The Ball Buster provides a deep garnet color and aromas of blackberry preserves, prunes, mulberries and dried leaves with nuances of Indian spices and dusty earth. Full bodied and rich in the mouth..." -Lisa Perrotti-Brown. It's a great wine with a stupid name
John L. Sullivan Irish Whiskey
93 Points - Wine Enthusiast, March 2011
"John L. Sullivan Irish whiskey is a small batch blend of single grain and single malt whiskeys, aged 4 to 10 years in Single Use Bourbon Barrels. It consists of only the finest, individually selected barrels, pulled for their unique character detected during the aging process. John L. Sullivan is smooth, yet at the same time rich, complex & balanced. It is layered with hints of oak, vanilla, spice, citrus, malt, and honey. The finish is long and has a silky bourbon character from the barrels. This special bottling by the Cooley Distillery pays tribute to an Irish American legend & to all the descendents of the hard working Irish immigrants who came to America. Aging the whiskey in Single Use American Oak Bourbon Barrels, honors John L. Sullivan & the Irish immigrants, as they too were the ‘Product of Ireland’, but ‘Aged in America’." -The Distillery
