     1) The BALVENIE Distillery Banffshire in Scotland, the Single Barrel Sherry Cask, aged 15 years, a non-chill-filtered release, $110.99, with 47.8% alcohol by volume, we have some richer, more concentrated and warmer, more of a rush svelte and silk taste here, fire that fires and simmers and mells and molds and spreads it's influence over us lovingly, respectfully-no! NOT! It is great but not perhaps respectful, it has too much vigor and may be too impatient for respect? Good thought , though.
 
     2) The Distiller's Edition from DALWHINNIE, a great Highland Single Malt Scotch that is double-matured and was distilled in 1996 and bottled in 2012. It is now On Special for $78.99 a bottle, just a few left, come get some while you still can!
 
 
     IN WINE From Chris and Tony :
 
     1) Sauvignon Blanc from California, a 2014 from BACKSTORY, On Special for $9.99 a bottle, great deal, nice taste, fun package, tasty now as the weather is warmer ...
 
 
AS WE WATCH tonight's Republican Presidential debate ot THE VOICE where the winner is announced, or as we anticipate the next Star Wars installment released and shown this Thursday at the Uptown Theater, or wrap presents, or enjoy a meal, whatever, ... a good bottle.
 
     2) Cabernet Sauvignon 2013 from Chile's DOS PASOS, from the Aconcagua Valley, with 13.5% alcohol by volume, this was open here this past Saturday and it sure is bright, fresh, lively, balanced and so pleasing to sip on and enjoy with or without a meal, and at a great value, too.
 
     3) The Lion Hound 2015 ' White ' dry blend of mostly Viognier, with some Sauvignon Blanc, from South Africa's Paarl region, $11.49 a bottle, with 13% alcohol by volume. Refreshing, really lively, a treat that becomes the sparkling wine we also sell here. Come try some, really pleasing. I like it.
 
     4) Dry white Viognier 2014 from RIDGEBACK, South Africa, in Paarl, $19.49 a bottle, with 13.5% alcohol, a real tasty, flavorful wine that is best with food, that also becomes the sparkling wine we sell, $28.99 a bottle, you should come and try both, use them in a meal and see how similar and yet different they both are. New and exciting here, as well as really special.
 
     5) The Pinotage 2013 from DIEMERSFONTEIN, , from South Africa's Western Cape,  : " Our Pinotage has a distinct taste of coffee, chocolate, plums and ripe black cherries on the nose and palate , ... "  I tried it, rich, ful and round and so soft on the tongue!
 
     6) 1900 Battle of Spioenkop 2012 Chenin Blanc , 24th of January, from South Africa's Elgin region, this fantabulous dry, floral, fragrant, mineral Chenin Blanc is On Special for $19.99 a bottle, regularly $27.99 a bottle, and I think it is world-class, I love it.
 
    10) Syrah 2012 from South Africa's OVER THE MOUNTAIN , $20.99 a bottle,  with 14.5% alcohol by volume, ... rich, forward, very flavorful, too. I like it. I enjoy it more with a meal, and find that it is just starting it's journey, it is still quite young. No need to rush it.
 
 
BUBBLY, Real French Champagne To Celebrate With :
 
     1) Brut PIERRE MONCUIT-DELOS Grand Cru Blanc de Blanc, $62.99 brings you some real thrill of sublime sunshine filtered and fleshed-out with the earth's bounty in a delectable liquid sunshine of Chardonnay grapes, lovely, sublime, a real favorite, tried-and-true-faithful-fleshed-steeled-cheered-chilled-ohhh-overflowing French champagne sparkling charm!
 
     2) Brut Rose from Ay, a Grand Cru, RM, French champagne GATTINOIS, $65.99, fleshier, flushed, flattering, a really silky , almost sinful delight that defies the boundaries of civilization and moves into the rhelms of fantasy and less of reason as it charms and cajoles one to such a degree that we have to drop all sense of obligation to the world and shine the light of rich rose French champagne onto our tired and weary, worn, sometime frazzled nerves and psyche! Glorious!!
