Maestro Dobel Tequila x Silver Oak Extra Anejo Tequila....$1,099.99 / bottle

Crafted in American oak, Silver Oak Cabernets are aged in new and once-used barrels—but what happens to the used barrels? Reclaimed staves have appeared in everything from a salmon recipe to a wedding band. In celebration of our 50th anniversary, a batch of used 59-gallon wine barrels took the journey to Jalisco, Mexico, and the result is finally ready to share.

We are proud to share in this latest artisanal tequila collaboration for the Maestro Dobel 50 collection, a label founded in 2017 in honor of Dobel CEO Juan Dobel Beckman’s 50th birthday and other half-century milestones. Finished and infused with flavor from American oak barrels, the Dobel 50 Tequila Silver Oak edition is a small production, luxury Extra Añejo tequila handcrafted using 100% Blue Weber Agaves.

“We are thrilled to announce this release in collaboration with Silver Oak, a Northern California icon for whom we have great respect and shared values of familial heritage, tradition and product innovation,” says Juan Dobel, founder of Maestro Dobel Tequila. “Dobel 50 Silver Oak edition celebrates a shared 50-year milestone and captures the flavor profile of one of the best wineries we know while enhancing the smooth agave notes of our most exquisite tequila.”

About the Tequila
With notes of citrus and dried fruits, the liquid has a translucent appearance with an intensely bright amber color. The complexity of the aromas reflect notes of cooked agave, ripe fruits, caramel and vanilla (from the carefully selected aging barrels), leading into an elegant buttery finish.

2018 Taylor Fladgate Vintage Port

2018 Taylor Fladgate Vintage Port...$109.99 / 750ml
This is an exceptional vintage, most unusually the third declared in a row from this producer. Intensely perfumed and richly structured with dark black fruits and concentrated tannins, it is set for seriously long-term aging. The power of the wine, based around the producer's Quinta da Vargellas, is magnificent. Drink this major Port from 2029.
Rated 98/100 Wine Enthusiast
Remarkably harmonious already, with a beautiful display of unadulterated blueberry, blackberry and plum sauce flavors that fan out, while anise, ganache and cassis accents fill in. So lush and seductive through the finish, it’s nearly drinkable. But just wait. Best from 2030 through 2050. 7,800 cases made.
Rated 96/100 Wine Spectator
The 2018 Vintage Port is a field blend aged for approximately 18 months in very old and large wooden vats. It comes in with 100 grams of residual sugar. This is the third straight declaration (2016, 2017 and this 2018) of a classic Vintage Port for Taylor's. When last seen, this was very good. Let's check in. This is an accessible Taylor's that drinks fairly well now, but it still shows some power. Most of all, though, the fruit is sensational. It's utterly delicious, with the young fruit ripe and rolling over the palate. This is coming along fast, so that with decanting, you might even drink it now, but that would be an error. It is not coming close to showing everything it has. In the back of my head, I am wondering a little about how fast this is coming around, so it seems, but it does so many things well, I can't be churlish right now. Let's see in time if it is going to be a long-haul wine, as I expect Taylor's to be.

Domaine Notre Dame des Pallieres Rasteau La Coudouliere


Stunning value from Rasteau!
Don't sleep on this ----- one-stock up
2020 Domaine Notre Dame des Pallieres Rasteau La Coudouliere...$9.98
70% Grenache, 15% Mourvedre, 10% Syrah, 5% Cinsault
Intense dark red cherry color, clean and shiny. The nose is elegant and complex, revealing aromas of black fruit such as blackcurrant, mulberry and blueberries, mixed with mild spices, garrigue and candied orange, finishing with a soft touch of oak sweetness. The mouthfeel is rich, fine and concentrated, embedded in some roundness. The long finish brings black cherries, chocolate, some peppers, fine tannins and menthol.

The gobelet pruned vines are all hand-harvested, only the best grapes are picked at perfect maturity. The grapes are destemmed and enjoy a long maceration of over 30 days with temperature control, pumping over and cap-punching. Most is done by gravity, the grapes, juice and wine are handled with the utmost care. The aging takes place partly in concrete tank, and partly in French oak barrels. The combination of the two makes this wine more complex, and the barrel aging softens the tannins.

OBTAINIUM Light Whiskey came into existence in 1968 because consumers were moving away from Bourbon and more into clear spirits such as vodka or gin. Light whiskey is distilled between160-190 proof. Contrast that with Bourbon or American Rye which tops out at 160 proof. It must be aged in used, charred oak barrels or new, uncharred oak. Most distilleries didn’t let it age very long. Sourced from MGP in Indiana. Light whiskey fell out of favor, and stocks were left hanging around, mostly ignored and forgotten. UNTIL NOW!

Gran Patron Piedra

Gran Patron Piedra Tequila Extra Anejo...$339.99
Compare to $379.99 at Total Wine and More
This extraordinary extra añejo tequila is crafted entirely from the “Tahona” process, a time consuming and ancient method for creating tequila. To produce Gran Patrón Piedra, first we select the highest-quality, 100 percent agave from the Highlands of Jalisco, which we then steam-cook and slowly crush with a large volcanic stone Tahona wheel. The resulting juice is then fermented and distilled along with the agave fiber. Piedra, which means “stone” in Spanish, is one of very few tequilas that is still produced in this age-old way. After distillation, Gran Patrón Piedra is meticulously aged for more than three years in new American and French oak barrels for a deep mahogany color and sweet, subtle aroma of fruit, fresh mushroom, light citrus, and toasted French oak. The distinctive Gran Patrón Piedra bottle, which was inspired by the Tahona stone, is packaged in an elegant box that converts into a beautiful display case.
