Chambers and Chambers
Deep rosé colour, with clear fragrances of strawberry and brushwood. Its taste is fresh, pervasive, mineral, and at the same time velvety and surprisingly pleasant with lively red cherry fruit, tangy and properly dry on the finish. A softly sparkling wine that’s great with charcuterie.
"Vivid straw-yellow. Clean and precise aromas and flavors of yellow peach, apricot, orange oil and cinnamon. Layered but refined, with a thick mouth-feel and noteworthy concentration of flavor on the long creamy finish."- Vinous Media
"There's a hint of complexity in the interplay between this wine's gentle sweetness and crisp acidity, like biting into a freshly picked ripe pear. It's lean and focused, a match for warm goat cheese on crostini."- WIne and Spirits Magazine

Golden State Wine Co.
The quintessential Fino from Jerez: dry, light and pungent, with an aroma of almonds and mildly acidic on the palate.

Southern Wine and Spirits
The spirit is triple distilled, and the alcohol vapors are passed through bundles of the herbs and spices in order to gain flavor and aroma of almond, lemon peel, liquorice, juniper berries, orris root, angelica, coriander, cassia, cubeb, and grains of paradise.
Youngs Market Company
22 hand-foraged local botanicals delicately augment none berries, barks, seeds and peels during an achingly slow distillation. The Botanist Islay dry gin is a rare expression of the heart and soul of our remote Scottish home.
Contains a floral nose, with a distinct sweet juniper hit. On the palate it is rich but mellow and finished with a zesty but gentle spice. A highly distinctive, complex, floral gin.
Youngs Market Company
Juniper, coriander and angelica root up front with developing layers of citrus, jasmine and hints of vanilla in the back. Very pleasant on the nose, bright and aromatic.
Prominent mid palate presence, with juniper oils on the center tongue and full aroma on top palate. Citrus oils excite the side palate beautifully. Under tongue stays dry yet animated. Excellent mid palate structure to serve as base for mixing.
Dryness coming from jasmine.
St. George Spirits
A base of 100% pot-distilled rye makes this a gin for whiskey lovers—and for gin im-purists willing to take a walk on the rye side.
Think genever, then think again—and brace yourself for a gin with structure, spice, and an impossibly rich mouthfeel.
Warm and spicy, it has a natural affinity with bitters, citrus, stone fruit, and ginger.
Try it in a Negroni, a Martinez, a Gin Buck—or any classic cocktail that calls for rye whiskey. You’ll never look at an Old Fashioned the same way again.

In 1972, when David Stare opened the doors to Dry Creek Vineyard, it was the first new winery to be built in the Valley since Prohibition. Dry Creek created the first Sonoma Fume Blanc, originated the Dry Creek Valley AVA, and was an early advocate for Bordeaux-style blending. Today, Dry Creek Vineyard is committed to vineyard diversity, vinifying individual lots of fruit separately, and then blending carefully for each final cuvee.
The grapes for this delicious Bordeaux-inspired blend come from several estate and hillside vineyards in the Dry Creek Valley. At first swirl, the wine displays aromas of blueberry, vanilla and cherries. Several more minutes reveal hints of clove, cinnamon, black licorice and mocha characters. The palate has dark berry flavors along with cedar sweetness and cassis. There's a good balance between juicy dark fruit and oak structure. The tannins are soft and supple with a very round and slightly oily texture. It finishes with black pepper, boysenberry and a hint of barrel spice. Good acidity will help this wine to age beautifully for years to come, plus makes it a great food wine.
This delicious wine incorporates small amounts of Sauvignon Musque and Sauvignon Gris which add a layer of depth and a fleshy, full-bodied mouthfeel. At first swirl, this wine presents aromas of pineapple, ripe pear, and some floral notes. On the palate, flavors of Meyer lemons, tangerines and mineral notes come through with a slightly creamy, but lively finish. Stainless steel fermentation was supplemented with small amounts of chestnut, acacia and French oak barrels adding additional character and nuance to this delicious wine. Seamless from start to finish, this is an elegant and refined Sauvignon Blanc.
"This is a voluptuous style, fleshy and fulfilling in ripe pineapple and papaya, evocative of tropical shores. Bristling acidity complements the fruit, as a wave of creamy vanilla picks up steam on the lengthy finish."- WE
