Featuring a wide, international selection of fine wines, micro-brews and spirits

LET'S CELEBRATE ACTIVELY this week ... both " Teacher appreciation " ...  and
Mother's day! A very full week for us all indeed, and a very positive one, too!

CALL US : 202-363-4265 ; We deliver ; HAPPY TO DELIVER, happy to get things for
you to give to teachers as well as to your mothers!

LOOKS LIKE RAIN THIS WEEK  and you may not to go out so call us and we will
deliver to you. It's our pleasure. Just let us know what you are interested in
and we will come by and save you from getting any more wet than you already may
be from this constant rain, clouds and gray, no sunshine, dampness and puddles
everywhere that eventually permeates everything we are wearing as well as within
us effecting our moods, feelings and thoughts. Let us bring you some liquid
sunshine, we have it in so many colors, forms, textures, from the driest of
dries to the sweetest of sweetest, from clear to golden and green and brown and
dark and blue, from still to sparkles - few and bigger bubbles or more and
really tiny ones like in real French champagne! SOMETHING for EVERYONE is our
motto.

WE'VE ALL HAD FULL PLATES and it has been exciting to hear from customers about
some of them like the NIKE WOMEN'S SERIES running marathons. One of our
customers this past Saturday had just participated in the first one held here on
Pennsylvania, 13 mile marathon starting on Freedom Plaza with 14 thousand-strong
I believe that she said. It all started in San Fransisco with firemen dressed in
tuxedos bringing the female runners Tiffany boxes with necklaces. Joan
Benoit-Samuelson was there, at this one in D.C. our female customer relaying all
of this to me also got a Tiffany box with a Tiffany necklace. She showed it to
me. Admission started at $160 per runner and it went to benefit the Leukemia and
Lymphoma Society. ALL GOOD. I loved hearing all of this. So many great causes.
She received her Tiffany box here from a man dressed in a tux - showed me the
picture, really nice. She had a broad smile on her face as she showed it to me.
WHERE WILL THE NEXT one be held? I should have asked?

I ALSO SPOKE TO ANOTHER WOMAN recently that was all excited about discovering
the Barclay Bar Calvados Collection and organic spirits menu in New York City at
111 East 48th Street. Barbara told me that there was some insane number of
French Normandy Calvados bottles to sample and order the one that you preferred.
She told me that she had sampled a really old one. Being an avid Calvados lover
as I am, and knowing that we have many customers that love French apple brandy
as I do I asked her to email me the place and address and phone number,
etcetera. Thanks Barbara. She did, too : 1) www.intercontinentalnybarclay.com,
and  2) www.Facebook.com/NYBarclay. This all makes me wonder what we have to
offer here in Washington D.C.? It is worth checking if we have something similar
here so that you can support D.C. and our local economy before heading north to
the Big Apple. Cheers. Please do respond here and let us know any of your
thoughts? We'd love to hear the? How many of you love apple brandy?

IT'S BEEN BUSY HERE : SOME UPDATES:

THIS PAST FRIDAY with Jody Jackman we tried the COUSINO-MACUL Chilean wines
from the Maipo Valley and they all showed really well as expected. The LOTA
2007, On Special for $99.99 a bottle showed beautifully and we sold some of that
as well as of the FINIS TERRAE, the ANTIGUAS RESERVAS, the MERLOT, and the dry
white an exciting SAUVIGNON GRIS. ALL the wines are still in stock and available
here for any of you that missed this incredible event to honor Arturo Cousino
that was just in town here in Cleveland Park about a week and a half ago. What a
great moment that was to see him again and have him back here. The LOTA Bordeaux
blend may be enjoyed now or aged and it will only show better with time. It's
still very young. The LOTA will make a great FATHER'S DAY Gift as that is also
coming up soon.

THIS PAST SATURDAY with Chuck our salesperson for Robin Cellars we tried
three California wines from SHANNON RIDGE Petit Sirah and Sauvignon Blanc,
VIGILANCE dry red Zinfandel blend with Petit Sirah in it as well  - from North
Coast ,  and PALI Chardonnay  from Sonoma, that all showed really well - SOLD
REALLY WELL, too. We still have them all here for you to enjoy. They, too will
make great Teacher Appreciation Gifts, along with the COUSINO-MACUL wines from
Chile.

JUST HAPPENED : We had winemaker Pascal / Schildt of the FALSE BAY
Portfolio here with Nolan Hale introducing his dry Chenin Blanc 2011  and his
dry Pinotage 2012 , both will sell for $14.99 a bottle, both are balanced,
fruit-forward, smooth, bright, fresh, medium-to-light-bodied : delights both.
They will make good additions to what we currently have. Nolan will come by and
try Michel on them to see if he agrees with me on these two? I hope so as I
really do like them both very much. It was a treat for me to taste them as I
finish this store email for you all.

WINES From Michel & Tony :

1) Pinot Grigio from Italy's Veneto, from CORNARO, $9.99 and very flavorful
and rich and tasty this 2012 vintage! It's a fine food wine.

2)  100% Sauvignon Blanc 2011 from France's Loire Valley, a Touraine from
Jean Sablenay, $10.99, 12.5% alcohol by volume, this is clean and crisp and
bright with more body and more personality than most and thus more reminiscent
of a delicate Sancerre. Cheer. Great value, too. AMAZINGLY GOOD!

3) !00% Sauvignon Blanc 2012 from MATUA in New Zealand's Marlborough Valley
( $11.99, 13% alcohol by volume, www.matua.co.nz ) : this was amazingly good
like the Touraine Sauvignon Blanc above : BOTH WAY OVER delivered for quality

4) 100% Sauvignon Blanc New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc 2012 from SEIFRIED in
Nelson ( On Special for $19.99, 13.5% alcohol by volume ) : this is the " new "
vintage that arrived and it's really amazingly flavorful, crisp, tasty, tangy,
like a great mineral-laden Pouilly-Fume from the Loire Valley in France. Better
with food, makes you hungry quicker as there is more acidity and TANG here and
so it's great with salads and vinaigrette, goats' cheeses, anytime you squeeze
lemon or lime on a dish, casual or formal, inside or outside : and CERTAINLY
PERFECT for both this week of Teacher Appreciation and Mother's Day this Sunday!
Cheers.

5) Moscato 2011 from Oregon's FORIS VINEYARDS in Cave Junction ( $20.99,
7.5% alcohol by volume, www.foriswine.com ) : this is a perfect dessert wine all
by itself or with many fresh fruits like apricots, pears, peaches, nectarines.
Steve was the winemaker, he might still be? Anyway, for years Steve lived and
worked here and so it was a great surprise to find him here at the FORIS Winery
:  " This Moscato was made in an exuberant style and rich in sustainable
enthusiasm. Enjoy." We will : perfect for this weekend and to cap an exciting
evening or celebration : like teachers getting their students to check their
work, catch their mistakes, and dot their " i's " and cross their " t's "! OH
YEAH. BRAVO.
