CLEVELAND PARK WINES & SPIRITS 3423 CONN. AVE. N.W. D.C. 20008
 
 
HAPPY WARMER DAYS SOON AHEAD, & Rainless Week Ahead! We all want to shed our thicker layers of clothes, get suntans, relax, not be rushing while outside, soaking up all those glorious rays that warm and inspire, that fire our imaginations, fleshing-out our lives, giving ourselves a pat on our backs, on those of our loved ones, telling them how much you appreciate being with them.
 
ALL IS NOT LOST, it is there to be found. We just have to keep moving, keeping active, with some purpose, some list of what we want to do today and this week, for this month, before the end of this year. Pacing ourselves, that is the key, and we try and help you all accomplish that.
 
WE LOVE WHEN YOU STOP BY to chat as many of you do. We love that you think of us as a resting-spot, a second home, an oasis from the elements, a shelter from the storms that rage on so many plains from politics, to global weather and warming,  to diseases, cancers, aging, discrimination, hatred, loss of much transparency, forgetting honesty and humbleness, wow, the list is long and yet I say : " Go outside, feel the breeze, listen to the birds chirp, watch the squirrels jump from tip-of-tree-branch long distance over to other tree or rooftop, , catch the quick scamper of the chipmunks dashing for cover from flower pot to canopy of gree-leafed day lillies, the buzz of a bumble bee, the annoying buzz of a fly close by, the grace of a lady bug. It is all therapeutic.
 
IT HELPS ME to dig in the earth of our yard as I did yesterday, to transplant some of our Nandinas and group them together.
 
IT WAS BEAUTIFUL TO WHEEL my mother around outside so she could feel the sun's rays, the breeze, the spotty drops of wet and cooling rain, listen to the birds chirping and singing gloriously.
 
ALL GOOD, that is what we all need, some good of the earth grounding as we bike or run or walk through the parks, escape upstairs to roof tops, to balconies, simply opening a window and closing our eyes and breathing-in the freshness of outdoors.
 
WE CAN ALSO HELP YOU by greeting you as you deserve, a nice ' hello ', a smile, a grin, a simple : " How are you? " , " Welcome to our store. ", " So nice to see you again. None of this costs us anything and yet it breaks the ice, melts our steel barriers up to protect us from so much external, harmful, disruptive noise.
 
I DID A LOVELY SMALL Private Wine-Tasting for five wonderful young ladies, librarians, one of them getting married and going to France, England and Iceland for their honeymoon! Wow, we had a blast , four wines to delight in from France ( Bordeaux 2010 , Costieres De Nimes 2011 ) , one orange wine, a Kisi from Georgia, an amazing Cremant De Bourgogne.
 
THEN I ESCORTED THESE FIVE LOVELY YOUNG LADIES over to Sorriso restaurant to introduce them to owner Pietro that they did not know, they had booked a meal there from reading positive reviews of Sorriso! I love that, love it when the neighborhood shines.
 
THEN I CAME BACK, cleaned up, washed our wine glasses and headed home for a much-needed break from all this wonderful activity here in Cleveland Park, a ' happenin' ' neighborhood. So much always happenin' right under our nose and we do not even know about it.
 
EVERYTHING IS SELLING these days, you are all interested in everything pretty much it seems. Everything is open to discussion, to trying, to making in our own unique way. So many of us are ' new ' mixologists today. That is exciting. So many of you are amateur beer-makers. Our Swedish neighbor is growing hops and so we will see what that will produce ath the end of this year? The plant went in this past fall and looks like it survived our winter, so now only time will tell!?!
 
          MORE THAN THIRTY HARD CIDERS :

     1) " Green Apple ' Hard Cider from McKENZIE'S Hard Cider, On Special for $11.99 for a 6-pack of 12-ounce bottles, with 5% alcohol by volume, : " McKensie's Green Apple Hard Cider has quite the kick. With its deliciously crisp, slightly tart bite of fresh green apples, it's the most fun you can have with apples. " From West Seneca, NY, and naturally gluten-free.
 
          THREE  BEERS :
 
     1) ' Triple " KARMELIET, On Special for $13.99 a 1 Pt. 9.4Fl. Oz bottle, with 8.4% alcohol by volume, this is an authentic Belgian ale from Belgium, : " Round, robust, smooth and fruity, with a delicate spicy flavor.

     2) ' Seclusion " IPA from NEW PLANET Brewing,  : " New, crafted to remove gluten ", $11.99 a 6-pack of 12-ounce cans with 4.9% alcohol by volume, Wow, this is really exciting!

We also string, stake, train, test, trim, separate, sort, kiln and cool them. ... "
 
 
          LIQUEUR, LIQUOR From Jagir :
 
     1) ' Tierras ' TEQUILA Autenticas de Jalisco, 100% Agave, , the Reposado, certified organic, USDA Organic, made, hecho en Mexico, On Special for $40.99 a bottle, with 40% alcohol by volume, I like this, I like it a lot. Eddie Ofori tasted me on this years ago, I found it so elegant, so fine, so polished, really liked it, have been selling it ever since! Now Eva sells it to us, really a fine Tequila that comes in Anejo and also Blanco On Special for $36.99 a bottle. Cheers, come get a bottle of each.
 
     2) RUSSELL'S Reserve Kentucky Straight Rye Whiskey, 6 Years Old, with 45% alcohol by volume, On Special for $43.99 a bottle : " More than 90 years. That's the combined tenure of Master Distillers Jimmy & his son Eddie Russell. They hand select barrels after at least 6 years of aging, resulting in a Rye that delivers a balance of smooth, complex allspice, pepper and almond flavors. Their experience guarantees yours. " Come check this out, try some on for size, fit and feel!

     3) Uigeadail The Ultimate Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky, from ARDBEG, On Special for $76.99 a bottle, with 54.2% alcohol by volume, it is non-chill-filtered, what a flavorful intensely smooth peaty taste, great price, too!

 
          LOCAL Distiller Success-Story-Blossoming!
 
     1) ' Royal Seal ' Magnus Inaugural edition Vodka, $27.99, from Nicole, her sister Danny Hassoun, and another : they rock! I was blown away, so was everyone else that came by here and tasted with us a week or so ago. Nicole came by, she waited patiently to taste. She helped me with one of our regular customers to pick out a local gift ( we both recommended highly the white whisky Rock Creek, $32.99 from ONE EIGHTH ), and Nicole talked us through the three that she has for sale now. Danny delivered the three last week, what a treat, many have already sold , like the Bourbon whiskey, and a lot of the gin, too. 
     I loved this Royal Seal Vodka, it blows me a way fro it's lightness, brightness, and freshness, as well as it's unique style that made me dub it the ' crossover ' between vodka and gin, like a vodka with a splash of gin added to it to give that extra excitement of a gin and yet the lightness and brightness of a vodka!
     This may be a whole ' new ' category : ' crossover ' of a gin and a vodka, or a vodka and a gin?!? You may be hearing this from me first. After all, why not? Either or both, one being the base and something to tweek that base? I think there is real promise in this idea. We will see, time will tell. $27.99 a bottle for the vodka and the gin, both exceptional, all three in stock, the Bourbon whiskey is just shy of $90 a bottle.
Nicole tells us our price is great and that she will send customers our way becasue of this. Thanks Nicole, Watch my video on Facebook that I took of her waxing poetic over her spirits.
 
 
 
          WINES OF ALL TYPES From Chris, Tony :
 
     1) Castell De Raimat Albarino 2014 from Costers Del Segre RAIMAT, $11.99 a bottle : a ridiculous price for a Spanish Albarino, with 12.5% alcohol by volume, this is a lovely dry white wine with good taste and presence, and a great value for the most remowned grape variety in Spain. Lovely. Try some!
 
     2) Cabernet Sauvignon de Chile from ALMA, the Private Reserve 2013, On Special for $9.99, with 14% alcohol by volume, an Aconcagua Valley Cabernet that is  tasty, flavorful, distinct, balanced dry red, I like it a lot, I really do. Some of these inexpensive wines like this really over-deliver and that is exciting as so much is expensive and not worth the asking price. Be selective, we try and be always, if we can save you money and give you great taste, distinct flavors for less moeny then we have really succeeded!
 
     THIS MAKES ME THINK, too of the dinner we are working on with owner Manuel Rojas od ALMA De Chile wines, and with Coppi's Organic down the street in the old Lavandou location! I have asked Carlof the owner of Coppi's Organic to come to the store today to work on setting a menu for a spectacular dinner down there as soon as we can set a date!

Wine By Chris & Tony :
 
1) Chenin Blanc 2013 Fairtrade from FAIRVALLEY inW.O. Western Cape, South Africa, $$11.99, with 13% alcohol by volume. This is smooth and bright and crisp and a touch tart and tangy, and bracing even, and wonderful for this spring weather of ours. It is in our 6-bottle sampler and it would have been wonderful this weekend sitting outside and enjoying a lunch and looking out and about as literally before your eyes the trees start to sprout small amounts of green at their many branch tips.
 
2) Tannat 2012 ( great year in Serra Gaucha ) ' Intenso ' dry red from SALTON. I enjoyed the last of it after Michael Cavanagh tasted it here this past Friday night with you all. What was left in the bottle at the end of Saturday night came home with me and I shared it with our neighbor and our ILDA pool neighborhood gents, Jim and Brian that came to pick-up things for their pool auction to raise money.
 
WE DONATED things and that brought a huge smile to my wife's face, and I invited them to taste some Chilean wines DOS PASOS, ALMA, IN SITU, and also the ' Father's Watch ' red Rhone Sonoma Coast blend from KIVEL STADT Cellars , On Special, also in our 6-pack sampler , for $19.99 instead of $24.99 a bottle). Both the SALTON Tannat 2012, On Special for $13.99, ... both tasted really fine even after being open almost three days. SO : the SALTON and the KIVEL STADT improved for me, they did not diminish in any noticeable way, I liked them better, especially the KIVEL STADT that really did soften and brighten and reveal more of it's inner core. What fun.
 
3) Zinfandel ' The Heart ' from California's Mendocino County, from IL CUORE, $14.49, 14.1% alcohol by volume, is smooth and very fruit-forward, I like it, medium-to-light-bodied, really nice, no need for any food, you may sip this all by itself.
 
4) Fateasca Neagra 2011, DOC-CT from Husi, Romania, thi s ' Glia ' , $14.99, is made from this indigenous grape Fateasca Neagra, and is showing so well now, only 5,090 bottles produced, and the flavors have matured nicely here and the wine is showing really well. But do not take my word, come taste it and see what you think with Razvan and Gabriella the next Friday, April 24th, 2015 from 5-8PM here.
 
5) ' Clos Lojen ' 2012 from Spain's Manchuela region, this indigenous Bobal , $16.99, 13.5% alcohol by volume, is really evolving nicely and showing a fullness, and a ripeness , brightness that is exciting and flavorful and balanced. This is good wine, really good wine. I like it, you all have, too every time that our local rep Amy tasted it with you all here. It is even further along on it's journey to complete and wonderful enlightenment, enlightenment for all of us, too. Cheers.
 
6) ' The Lady of Naoussa ' NAOUSSEA, Greece, a 2008 Oynth Kthma, $16.99, 13% alcohol by volume, blew me away when I tasted it last. I loved it, I absolutely loved it, that is why it is here for you all to discover and enjoy it's many wonders and charms. Earthy and pithy, a spicy, rustic, with lots of gamey flavors, nothing exactly polished or refined, more the guts of the grapes, the brute natural strength and varnished glories and weaknesses of this indigenous Xinomavro grape as it struggles to dig deeper roots and survive in this Naoussa region of Greece. It succeeds, too.
 
 
TIME For BEER from Santos :
 
1) ' Or Xata ' Blonde Ale brewed with rice from The BRUERY , a 2015 Edition On Special at $12.99 a bottle, in a 1 Pt. 9.4 Fl. Oz bottle, with cinnamon and vanilla beans added , from Placentia, CA. Looks so inviting! I like the label and packaging a lot.
 
2) ' Reserve Series' Raspberry Stout ' from HARDYWOOD, $10.99, a 1 Pt. 9.4Fl. Oz bottle in a 2015 release. We just got this, customers were asking for it ( " the berries were grown by AgrBerry - cultivate a taste for life - ", made in Richmond, Virginia by the HARDYWOOD PARK CRAFT Brewery.
 
3) ' Del's Shandy ' from NARRAGANSETT, refreshingly different, beer with natural lemon flavor, a recipe from great grandmother DeLucia made the first frozen lemonade back in Italy in 1840. That goes back quite awhile. You need to try this, from Providence, Rhode Island : this sounds like a great idea, especially when temperatures start to really soar as they did yesterday and Sunday! In cans, a 6-pack, 16 Fl. Oz, with 4.7% alcohol.
 
4) ' District Common ' , a common style lager, a 6-pack  of 12-ounce cans, $11.99 a 6-pack, with 5.1% alcohol,  brewed here in Washington D.C., try with lemon chicken, local oysters and/or pork medallions. This is all making me both hungry and thirsty, and so I am going to take my lunch break now and return soon! Cheers.
 
LIQUEUR / LIQUOR From Jagir & Malkit :
 
1) Citronge Extra Fine Lime Liqueur , a Premium Reserve On Special for $25.99 a 750ml bottle, from PATRON. This is really new and exciting, and ' cutting-edge ', too!
 
2) The Original NOCELLO Walnut Italian Liqueur from TOSCHI, $31.99 a 750ml bottle, 24% alcohol by volume.
 
3) Batavia-Arrack Van Oosten , a Dutch East Indies Trading, Ltd. in Batavia and Amsterdam, $29.99 a 750ml bottle, with 50% alcohol  by volume, ... " From the late 17th to 19th century, in an age when ' Punch ' was a celebration of all things then exotic - citrus, sugar, and spice , no Punch was without a true Batavia Arrack."
 
4) Blended Scotch Whisky Malt Grain Whisky ASYLA : " aged in first fill American oak casks, delicate, elegant in style, with vanilla and soft fruit character. " says whiskymaker John Glaser. Something to taste, something to ponder and enjoy fully. Make some time to enjoy this special whisky.
 
5) ' Bootlegger ' 21 New York Gin from the PROHIBITION DISTILLERY , On Special for $32.99 a 750ml bottle, 47% alcohol by volume, ... new and very exciting. Come get some now and be one of the first here in DC to try this : " In Gin We Trust."
