The Lost Abbey Framboise de Amorosa

This is a blended and barrel-aged brown ale that’s brewed with wild yeasts and fresh raspberries. It’s a complex and evolving selection, with intriguing spice and oak nuances that unfold with time and warming, making this an excellent option for wine drinkers.

New Glarus Raspberry Tart

  1. $9
With over a pound of raspberries in each bottle, this is a powerful and extremely fruit-forward selection. A gorgeous, pristine deep-ruby hue, with a soft pink head is coupled with aromas that hit you immediately upon opening and jump out of the glass once poured. Hints of sweet malt and wild yeast add depth to the crisp and lively palate, with lifting acidity that…  — L.B.  (9/1/2014)

Wild Turkey Diamond Anniversary

  1. $125
Made from a blend of very rare 13- to 16-year-old whiskies, this bottling pays tribute to Master Distiller Jimmy Russell’s 60 years at the Wild Turkey Distillery. This light, silky Bourbon shows lots of vanilla-maple and brown sugar flavors accented by a hint of peach, and tapers off delicately, with clove, cinnamon, ginger and burnt orange peel notes on the finish.  — K.N.  (9/1/2014)

This is powerful and rich, allowing just a note of freshness to creep into the firm structure. Dark tannins, black fruits and smoky wood flavors combine harmoniously, lending a sense of great power and long-term aging potential. Drink from 2019.  — R.V.  (9/1/2014)

Astrales 2010 Tinto Fino (Ribera del Duero)

  • Editors' Choice
  1. $70
This could be the best Astrales to date. Alluring scents of plum, blueberry and spice are backed by balsam dust and briary pipe-tobacco aromas. Deep and tannic on the palate, then packed with mocha, chocolate, toasted marshmallow, cassis and cherry cough drop flavors, this is fixed and firm now, with a staunch, intense, nervy finish. Drink from 2015–2028.  — M.S.  (9/1/2014)

Initially, this is a richly ripe wine with tropical fruit flavors. It also has an immense sense of structure that supports the fruit impressively. It’s dense, concentrated, exuding power and solidity, while always keeping a sense of elegance. Drink from 2018.  — R.V.  (9/1/2014)

Domaine Rossignol-Trapet 2011 Pinot Noir (Chambertin)

  • Cellar Selection
  1. $240
This is full of fruit and weighty tannins. Coming from one of the finest vineyards in Burgundy, it is going to have great power and an opulent nature. This wine also has elegance, its black fruits controlled and with a mineral edge. That doesn’t take away the power, it enhances the stylishness of this grand wine. Drink from 2020.  — R.V.  (9/1/2014)

Blanton’s Single Barrel Bourbon Whiskey

  1. $55
Bold and well structured, this Bourbon features warming vanilla and caramel accented by orange peel, stone fruit and a dry baking-spice finish. Sip it with a chunk of ice, or mix up a round of juleps. The trademark round, faceted bottle with the horse-topped cork is perfect for Derby Day.  — K.N.  (9/1/2014)
