Cleveland Park Wine Cleveland Park Beer, Liquor & Wine
Featuring a wide, international selection of fine wines, micro-brews and
JOIN US in celebrating this great weather-streak of 3-days now with sun and
a breeze, baby blue skies, feeling good and relaxed, some still suffering
from allergies and other symptoms of pollen and everything flowering at
once. I am my worst enemy as i LOVE being outside and gardening and I pay
the price, even from trimming a wild and unruly holly bush out in our front
yard yesterday with my wife. Maybe I got pricked too many times, maybe I
said : " Ouch! ", and maybe I cursed once to many times and the spirit of
the holly is getting me back for that?!?

WHATEVER, I woke up with watering eyes and blowing my nose. Our customer
Michael just passed me here in front of the store and smiled when I told
him my woes. he said that the same thing had happened to him yesterday and
that today he felt better.

SO : I guess I am not going to die. The bank manager concurred and smiled,
too , saying that he could not even see any of my pain and suffering. Good
I say! Life goes one thankfully.

US/ WE / I - all celebrate, smile, smirk, feel good, feel alive. Spread
some joy, say something nice to someone, a loved one, someone you are just

COME BY here and tell us your stories of how you did this or just met
someone, or made a family member feel loved and let us pour you a taste of
a wine or something special we may may have here in reserve for just these
special and important occasions.

MAYBE WE CAN help you figure out what is especially good now in this
weather. One of our customers just put three bottles of BALTIKA beer on the
counter to pay and I said to him, smiling : " Where are the three bottles
of wine there to balance out the three bottles of beer? " He replied
quickly that it was beer weather, not wine weather. There is some truth to
what he says, just some, I still love my wine.

ENJOYED SOME sparkling Cremant de Bourgogne this weekend at home, a gift
from Jim and Elizabeth Reeves and Clotilde Davenne of a bottle of CLOTILDE
DAVENNE NV brut : it was dry and full and steely and yet rich and tasty
and, most of all, really balanced, we all really liked it, really a treat
with herb abd garlic goat's cheese and smoked salmon. There was no
complaining, just smiles and sighs of complete satisfaction last night.

ISABEL INQUIRED about the CASAL GARCIA Vinho Verde and we will have some
here the first week of June for $6.99 a bottle. Obregado Isabel, ola, ola ,
ola ole Isabel!

MADE SOME FRESH PESTO last night, too before grilling burgers on our grill.

BUT HEY,  down to business now ... as the rolling thunder recedes and the
President's Band sounds of singing and playing at Wolf Trap the music of
South Pacific dim a bit, the fireworks there in the dark, one hundred feet
away, while listening to the Steve Miller Band, ZZ Top, the Beach Boys,
Kelly Clarkson : wow, it was enthralling, magical, intimate with five
hundred others all around us ...

WINE By Chris & Tony :


1) Soave dry, clean, bright, crisp and Italian white wine from
TAVERNELLO, No. 1 in Italy, On Special for $5.99 a bottle. Took this to
Wolf Trap on Sunday night and tasted it to be sure that it was still as
good as I remembered it when I tasted it with Chris a month ago? YES, it
was still as good : and WHAT A VALUE! This is a great deal for this hot
weather, come get some, enjoy outside, with or without food, it is pleasing
and easy-drinking and we are thrilled to have it here for you all. With
11.5% alcohol by volume, a real warm-weather treat.

2) Pinotgae 2013 from South Africa's Swartland, made by RIEBEEK
CELLARS, $7.99 a bottle, 14% alcohol by volume, I really enjoyed this at
Wolf Trap on Sunday with my family. I took it there chilled and with the
guacamole, the salsa dip and the fried chicken tenders it was delicious.
But hey, it was really delicious all by itself! SO : with or without a
meal, utterly delightful. A softer, mellower, brighter, and fruitier red,
with no edge, no burn, just melts on the tongue.

3) The 2013 Dry Red French Cotes Du Rhone from CHARLES THOMAS, $8.99,
13.5% alcohol by volume, ... I enjoyed this last night with my thick and
juicy and delicious hamburgers that I grilled last night on our grill out
back. It was wonderful, really lovely, and so easy to drink and enjoy all
by itself. It was juicy just like the hamburgers I grilled, a treat that I
shared with our neighbors that brought us over some of Matt's own smoked
pork done the day before that melted on the tongue. Some smoked
neighborhood pork for some fresh pesto that I had just made an hour earlier
and some dry red juicy CHARLES THOMAS Cotes Du Rhone 2013 to wash it all
down. Lovely!


MORE Fine Wines :

1) 2014 Bourgogne Aligote ( a grape variety in burgundy, France ) from
NAUDIN FERRAND is like having three or four layers of grape skin in your
mouth in a liquid form of course! It has great mouth-feel, great grip and
taste and appeal : Jim Reeves poured it here this weekend, on Friday night,
and we sold a lot and many of you really liked it! Tasty, bright, very
nice. I like it.

2) Bourgogne Blanc 2013 dry white 100% Chardonnay , from CLOTILDE
DAVENNE, $15.99, 12.5% alcohol by volume, made just outside the limits of
Chablis and tasting the same, clean and crisp and bright and wonderful,
with or without a meal. I really like this , too : it is lighter than the
Bourgogne Aligote. It sell so well because it is always ' spot-on ' in
quality, taste and value!

3) ' Radice ' dry rose Lambrusco from Italy, made by PALTRINIERI, On
Special for $17.99 a bottle, regularly $21.99, Robert Kennedy tasted this
with you all this weekend here on Saturday and it was so smooth and lovely
and velvet overtones of a lighter and more energized and a wine with
flavors that could act like wings and life you, your palate and all your
senses off the earth and make you soar and smile and feel so serene, too :
sinfully sumptuous!

4) ' Duca SanFelice ' Ciro Rosso 100% Gagliopo grapes from Calabria,
ITaly, this Classico Superiore Reserva, $20.99, has lovely overtones of a
fine French burgundy, from the Chalonaise region, so not as light and
bright, but lovely and multi-textured, not heavy : perfect red with a
slight 25-minute chill to fend-off the heat and humidity that is settling
in today here in Cleveland Park, Northwest, Washington D.C., 20008 ... oh

5) 100% Gamay grapes from 2013 , the ' H. Brac De La Perriere ' from
the Chateau De Lancie, $22.99, with 13% alcohol by volume, is a very
elegant, easy-drinking, smooth and pleasing Cru Beaujolais to enjoy now
with or without a meal from the Brouilly region of southern Burgundy, a
real treat and perfect with a 25-minute chill for this heat and humidity

6) ' Il Bianco ' DECUGNANO A.D.1212 from Italy's Umbrian region, a
2011 vintage, this is a really fine Orvieto Classico Superiore from
DECUGNANO Dei BARBI, and we have some bottles signed by owner Enzo, and
what a wonderful rich, thicker and denser, more posh, more plush and
pleasingly-perfect taste to just saturate and cleanse your weary stresses
and woes in! Wonderful, highly recommended.
