Beverage of the Week
Ayinger Brauweisse (Germany)
The great Beers from Ayinger have been available in the US for more than two decades. Their Brauweisse is absolutely traditional with the expected Ayinger complexity and depth of flavors. It’s perfect for summer refreshment or winter nourishment. See the Beverage of the Week feature
Grand Mayan Reposado, 100% Agave Tequila
Brilliant golden color. The nose is filled with the scents of ripe tropical fruits that soon become overwhelmed with barrel notes offering accents of toasted nut, chocolate, and brown baking spices. The palate echoes the nose while offering even less fruit as the heavy-handed oak dominates smothering all of the agave notes. Medium to full-bodied with a dominating note of oak and oak astringency with no balance at all. This is everything that is wrong with far too many modern Tequilas – wood dominated with an astronomical price tag. $79.99 – 2 Stars
Saladini Pilastri Pecorino Offida DOCG 2018
Brilliant, medium green/gold color. The nose is wonderfully intense offering fresh scents of white peach, citrus zest, and sweet pear with supporting notes of mineral and tropical fruit. The palate confirms the nose delivering a tropical fruits-driven core with accents of citrus and ripe green apple. The finish is long and lingering with bright acidity. Medium-bodied and perfectly balanced with a supple yet vibrant texture. $13 4.5 Stars/94 points
