FRIDAY WINE 4:00-6:00

ALBERT BICHOT BOURGOGNE: There are not very many white burgundies for under twenty bucks, so here is your chance to try a Chardonnay done in the French style.

HB POUILLY-FUME: We are staying in France for some Sauvignon Blanc. It is good to have these low ABV wines, because you can have a couple of glasses and still perform surgery if you needed.

GIRARDIN VOLNAY: Okay, we remain in France for some red burgundy! French Pinot Noir is a whole different animal than domestic Pinot. While it can’t be put into a neat box, they usually give off a bigger nose but with a lighter body.

SHEA WINE CELLARS PINOT NOIR: Now we move to Oregon, who have been inspired by Burgundy and try to mesh the old world and new world together.

KEITH’S CABINET: WHAT KEITH IS DRINKING NOW

LEOPOLD GIN: Gin and Tonics and Martini’s I am really enjoying this gin, from this awesome distillery.

DELORD 91: Yes I had some more, yes it was wonderful! Even just typing these words makes me want to have a glass. There are many brandy makers out there but De Lord ranks among the very best from the top to the bottom.

AVERY RAJA: I have always been a fan of this brewery but this double ipa in a can really hit the spot!

ZD CABERNET: One of the best wineries on the planet and one of the best cabernets in the store!
