Beverage of the Week
Leinenkugel’s Canoe Paddler
Leinenkugel’s offers over a dozen different styles including a collection of seasonable beers like their “Canoe Paddler”, a classically styled Kolsch beer. We absolutely love the Canoe Paddler as it has everything a lover of classic European beers seek. See the Beverage of the Week feature
Heeet Hot Cinnamon Flavored Vodka
Brilliant, crystal clear with legs evident. The nose is punctuated by a vibrant blast of cinnamon with little else competing for your attention. The palate echoes the nose delivering a mildly sweet and refreshingly spicy cinnamon core with accents of pepper and sugar. Full-bodied and intensely flavored with cinnamon offering all of the heat and sinus clearing aromatics that you would expect. $24.99 – 3 Stars
Bogle Petite Sirah California 2016
Brilliant, deep ruby/purple color. The aromatics are very intense offering scents of plum and blackberry with supporting notes of blueberry, black tea, five spice, forest floor, and oak. The palate echoes the nose delivering a black fruit-driven core with flavors of black fruits, mineral, and vanilla. The finish is long and lingering with chewy tannins. Medium to full-bodied and nicely balanced with a opulent texture. $12 4 Stars/90 points
Bogle Pinot Noir California 2016
Brilliant, medium ruby color. The nose is moderately intense offering scents of red cherry and violet with supporting notes of strawberry and dried herbs. The palate confirms the nose delivering a red fruit-driven core with flavors of red currant, vanilla, and hints of cigar box. The finish is long and lingering with ripe tannins. Medium-bodied and perfectly balanced with a silky texture. $12 4 Stars/90 points
Bogle Old Vine Zinfandel California 2016
Brilliant, dark ruby color. The aromatics are very intense offering scents of red currant and plum with supporting notes of balsamic, dried herbs, and red cherry. The palate echoes the nose delivering a red fruit-driven core with flavors of raspberry jam and pomegranate. The finish is long and lingering with ripe tannins. Full-bodied and nicely balanced with a opulent and jammy texture. $12 3 Stars/85 points
