I AM JUST BACK FROM a great week off at the Outer Banks with my family and I was
glad to be able to take some wine with us. I wanted to buy a bottle or two of
some of the wines ( I think that there are 80-plus wineries now in North
Carolina ) of North Carolina but all I saw were the sweet Muscadine wines and I
wanted some of the dry one. Oh well, next time. I got a great brochure on these
wines by the way and am happy to share it with anyone interested? Just let me
know, it's still at home.
WE DRIVE BY the SANCTUARY VINEYARD each time we go and return from the beach and
it looks as if they are planting more grapes and expanding and this time as I
drove home I really did have a strong urge to stop and check it out. Any of you
ever stop and taste the SANCTUARY Vineyard, North Carolina wines/ Please let me
know if you have : I'd love to hear what you thought. Cheers.


1) Pumpkin Ale Ale Brewed with Pumpkin and Spices from POST ROAD  by the
BROOKLYN BREWERY ( On Special for $9.99 a 6-pack of 12 ounce bottles, 5% alcohol
by volume , Utika, New York ) : we have some and it being our most popular
seller of them all you should come and get as much as you can while you still
can. Ask Santos how much he was able to get this time? This style of beer was
very popular in the 18th century will colonial Americans. Cheers.
2) Sour Power 100% Brewed In Belgium from GLOBAL BEER Networks ... this
MONK'S CAFE was brewed & bottled by :  Brewery Van Steenberge, B-9940 Ertvelde.
Talk about a complicated yet fun label : full of intrigue and like reading the
old cartoons. It sells for $20.99 a six-pack of 12-ounce bottles and is in fact
a selection of three beers ( 2 each ) in this 6-pack:  1) 2 Monk's Cafe,  2) 2
Petrus Oud Bruin  and  3) 2 Aged Pale Ales. WOW : sounds and looks like so much
intrigue and adventure. Join in. Cheers.
3) " The Doppelrock " from GREAT LAKES Brewing Co. ( On Special for $10.99
a 4-pack of 12-ounce bottles, 7.8% alcohol by volume, from Cleveland, Ohio,
www.greatlakesbrewing.com ) : " Round and malty, our dopplebock lager - German
for double bock - celebrates the style originally developed by medieval monks ".
Try some.
4) Cassis black-currant Lambic Belgian Cassis beer from Brouwerij LINDEMANS
( On Special for $10.99 a 750ml, since 1811 ) is one of the lesser-known Lambic
beers where fruit is added to the beer. I saw it and wondered to myself if
anyone had ever added a splash of it to white still or sparkling wine? Would
that be worth trying? Anyone ever done this? Let me know : always curious,
always looking for ideas. After all, creme de cassis and either still or
sparkling wine is a classic blend, so why not have a splash of either added to
the beer that is flavored with the black currant? Cheers.
5) O.K. BEER from OKOCIM is a Full Pale Piwo Jasne Pelne imported from
Poland ( On Special for $10.99 a 6-pack of 12-ounce bottles, 5.6% alcohol by
volume ) is something new and exciting for us all here. Cheers.


1) Barenjager Honey & Bourbon, imported from Rinteln, Germany ( $27.99, 35%
alcohol by volume ) is ALL THE RAGE these days and more and more people are
asking about these honey-infused bourbons and whiskies from the United States,
Canada and now Germany, too! For more information go to :
www.barenjagerhoney.com. The honey takes the burn away from the bourbon and
makes it quite a delight to sip and enjoy as you feel the stress and the worry
and the bother of the day disappear from your shoulders and you smile and laugh
even once again?!?
2) " Sunshine " sun-kissed citrus fruit from MALIBU ( On Special for $14.99
a 750ml bottle, 21% alcohol by volume, www.malibu-rum.com ) makes a fine MALIBU
Sunshine Soda :  with  1 Part MALIBU Sunshine,  2 Parts Lemon Soda  : serve over
ice in a tall glass and garnish with a lime.
3) Angostura Trinidad & Tobago Caribbean Rum " 1919 " Finely-Distilled
Premium Rum - First Casked in 1919 - ( $34.99,   40% alc. by volume,
www.angostura.com ) was awarded :  1) Rum of the Year by MUNDAS in 2005 and
2006,  2) Double Gold Medal Winner by the San Fransisco World Spirits
Competition 2009 and the Rum Masters in 2011  and more ...,  3)  95 Rating from
the Wine Enthusiast  and  4 ) Highly Recommended by U.S. Spirits Journal 2002.
CLEARLY, it's good and should be sampled. EVERYONE KNOWS ALREADY how great the
Angostura of bitters. Cheers.
4) Mirto dell'Isola di Sardegna, this TREMONTIS makes the Myrtle Berry
liqueur ( $38.99, 30% alcohol by volume ) from Rome, Italy is " new and exciting
". I want to try some of this simply for the experience itself.
I will ask Ravi if we can't get Jody Jackman to open a bottle for us and
share it with our customers at her next in-store wine-tasting here? That would
be fun and I am sure once that people try it that it will sell. Someone creative
will come up with a cocktail that will include this taste and then it will fly
off our shelves?!? We will see. Come get some and try it on for size, fit and
feel. Cheers.

WINES From Michel Et Tony :


1) Wine Men Of GOTHAM Chardonnay 2011 ( $9.99, 12% alcohol by volume ,
www.gothamwines.com.au ) is a refreshing dry white to enjoy with really low
alcohol for an Aussie wine! I love that, really I do. Refreshing and nice summer
sipping as well as a great price, too.
2) Moscato Vino Frizzante by BOTER from Puglia in southern Italy ( $10.99 ,
8% alcohol by volume, www.bacchanalwines.com ) is not as sweet as many of the
Moscato made further north in Piemonte where it is the most famous. It's
actually lighter, less intense and easier to sip and enjoy in this heat and
humidity. It's also a great value. How do I know all this? Well, I tasted it
with Michel before leaving for the beach on vacation. I also know by looking at
the alcohol at 8%. For many further north the alcohol is lower : 5 and 6 %.
Remember that, it makes it easier when you want to know how sweet something is.

Dry Roses : Two :

1) Rosato Colline Teatine 2011 dry Italian rose from MASCIARELLI ( $14.99 ,
12.5% alcohol by volume ) is flavorful, rich, lush and a big, tasty mouthful of
flavors that when combined with the deep color spell a wonderful visual and
gustatory experience.

2) Rosato made in Spain from the Petit Verdot grape ( $16.99, 15% alcohol
by volume, www.pagodelvicario.com ) in Ciudad Real , this 2010 is another real
flavorful dry rose treat that is made from 100% Petit Verdot grapes.


1) Pinot Noir 2004 from LA STRADA in the Marlborough region of New Zealand
( On Sale for $19.99, regularly $44.99, www.frommwineries.com ) has been one of
the greatest single wine successes ever here. Complex, completely developed and
flavorful with earth, spice, peppers, tar and leather and tobacco and olives and
everything more that anyone could ever want and at a GREAT VALUE, too. We have
sold more than eighty cases of it at this price. WHAT A DEAL! Only fifteen cases
left. After that there will be no more. A great food wine. Buy a case and SAVE
tomorrow and Thursday the 20% off the sale price of $19.99 a bottle.
2) Cabernet Franc 2008 from BREAUX Vineyards in Purcerville, Virginia, this
" Marquis de Lafayette " ( $21.99, 13.8% alcohol by volume,
www.breauxvineyards.com ) is full and flavorful and so forward and rich and
smooth on the palate. It's a beauty anyway that you cut it, a delight of all
proportions. You simply must try it : SAVE the 20% Off the bottle tomorrow and
3) Shiraz 62%/ Grenache 28% / & Mourvedre 10% - dry red Aussie blend from
the Barossa Valley and made by KAESLER, this 2008 ( $20.99, 16% alcohol by
volume , www.kaesler.com.au ) is lush and ripe and unctuous and melts and fills
the mouth and palate so completely that when we opened it here two weekends' ago
people loved and bought it. SAVE 20% Off the bottle tomorrow and Thursday.
4) Lambrusco Red Label ROSENERE ( $14.99 ) : Reggiano Lambrusco Dolce from
DREI DONA Vineyards that is a touch off-dry is a delight to drink with or
without food. With brightness, sparkle, good deep red colors, a liveliness, a
pizzas and so much exuberance what else could anyone want with all this heat and
stifling humidity! It's perfect and have flavor and character and no sharpness
or tartness. Oh yeah.
5) Montepulciano D'Abruzzo 2009 from MONTEVENTO ( $8.99, 13% alcohol by
volume ) is a great value with lots of up-front fruit flavors, some really nice
spice and toasty-roasted berry flavors. It's a delight to drink. Medium-bodied
and so refreshing. Chill it slightly twenty minutes.
ALSO COMES in the equally delightful dry white Malvasia MONTEVENTO for the same
price of only $8.99.
6) Merlot 2011 from COUSINO MACUL in Chile's Maipo Valley ( $11.99, 14%
alcohol by volume, www.cousinomacul.cl ) is a lways a pleasure to enjoy with or
without a meal. I have been selling this wine now since the mid eighties and we
have grown up together and have our own individual stories to tell as well as
those where our paths have crossed. Bright, fresh and toasty!
7) Pinotage 55% / and 45% Shiraz dry red blend called " Dawn " from  SEVEN
SISTERS , this 2011 from South Africa ( $12.99, 14% alcohol by volume,
www.sevensisters.co.za ) is quite spicy and flavorful, best with food. Medium
bodied and great when you grill out. Cheers. It's also got the grade of :
Integrity & sustainability from the Wine & Spirits Board.
8) Pinot Noir Gran Reserva from Chile's Casablanca Valley from INDOMITA (
$11.99, 13.5% alcohol by volume ) is really drinking well and both Michel and I
really liked it when Lucinda tasted us on it. Thanks Lucinda.
9) 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon from GOTHAM in the Mclaren Vale of South
Australia ( $19.99, 14.9% alcohol by volume, www.gothamwines.com.au ) is classic
Aussie Cabernet Sauvignon that is well-made, balanced, flavorful ,
value-oriented and a treat to enjoy with or without a meal. Cheers.
10) 2008 Shiraz from the Barossa Valley and made by GOTHAM ( $18.99, 13.3%
alcohol by volume ) is classic BIG, RIPE, UNCTUOUS,
to-the-very-edge-not-over-and-back-safely taste that is nice because it offers
so much fruit and flavor and mouth-filling satisfaction that you just know most
people will prefer it to the 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon. Not me, I prefer the
Cabernet Sauvignon any day. I have to work at it a bit more, it challenges me
more : all things I like and welcome. Cheers. That is why we have both.

pour a selection of her wines still to be determined tomorrow. Call for more
info but I think we will be tasting the INDOMITA Gran Reserva Pinot Noir from
