Thanksgiving Wine Picks 2017

posted Oct 30, 2017, 7:28 PM by Heritage Liquor   [ updated Nov 18, 2017, 8:56 AM ]

Simple life wines are made by Don Sebastiani & Sons, a family owned and operated Winery in California with over 100yrs of experience and a passion for their product. They created two fantastic wines, a Chardonnay and a Pinot Noir, that they dedicate to all the people with a love for their home towns where they live, shop and eat. 

-The Chardonnay is a very light and refreshing with floral & honey aromatics, and hints of lemon zest. Being a medium bodied Chardonnay has its perks, the flavors it boasts won't overpower your food nor will it get drowned out, so this is a great pair for a traditional or a non-traditional Thanksgiving meal.

-The Pinot Noir is a treat in itself, one of the more versatile Pinots we carry, this one is full of great ripe red fruit notes and aromas of darker richer fruits and a balanced acidity on the finish with soft, velvety tannins to round out the wine making for another great pairing for Thanksgiving.

Need something for after dinner? We have that covered as well with Gemma Di Luna Sparkling Moscato & Hogue Riesling. These both may be sweeter wines, but they are a sure fire companion for pumpkin and pecan pie, football and game time. Gemma is light in body, but bright in flavor boasting notes of white pear and a touch of citrus, and the Hogue Riesling is a rich medium bodied Riesling with bold notes of honey and honeysuckle.

April Wine of the Month & Easter 2017

posted Apr 10, 2017, 5:52 PM by Heritage Liquor   [ updated Apr 10, 2017, 5:54 PM by Heritage Liquor ]

This month we will be featuring Pedroncelli Winery, based in Sonoma County in the city of Geyserville, and this year they are celebrating 90yrs of wine production spanning four generations of family ownership in a very competitive industry. We will have them as our featured wine tasting this Friday, April 17th, from 5-7pm. We will be sampling out their Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Petite Sirah, Cabernet & Zinfandel, all five varieties will be available for purchase all month long at $2 off a bottle.

Easter is coming up this weekend and we have just the wines to pair with family, friends and chocolate bunnies alike. A mix of styles and sources make for a great dinner conversation, so we have a mix of Domestic and Import wines from as "close" as New York to as far away as Italy.
Salmon Run Chardonnay Riesling blend, from New York, this dry white wine is bursting with flavor ranging from creamy citrus to refreshing pear. A great wine for lighter fare and lamb.
Valforte Rosé, a dry Italian rosé with notes of dried cherry, strawberry and a touch of tart raspberry, this wine is great for when guest arrive 2 hours early and don't want to help with meal prep but really want to talk about their neighbors new dog.
Dynamite Red blend, a classic California blend most likely of Cabernet & Merlot, this wine is a great example of new world winemaking of an old world style, the French Bordeaux. Bold in flavor and aroma, this wine is a great addition to any big meaty meals you might have planned.
Canti Moscato, traditional Italian sweet white wine with a bit of frizzante! This sweet Italian white has a touch of sparkling bubbles to it making it the perfect companion to after dinner festivities, especially if ice cream, peach cobbler or scrabble are involved. 
Fonseca Porto Bin 27 Reserve Port, this Port is the perfect balance of flavor, deep rich raisin and tobacco flavors with a smooth velvety finish of cherry and dates. This is the best friend to chocolate in all its forms, from mousse to artisanal shaped pieces as well as sitting back and relaxing after all the guests have left.

February Wine of the Month - Ava Grace Vineyards

posted Mar 14, 2017, 4:08 PM by Heritage Liquor   [ updated Mar 14, 2017, 4:08 PM by Heritage Liquor ]

This month we are featuring Ava Grace Vineyards as our wine of the month. We have their Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Red Blend & Merlot for $8.99, on sale for $7.99 till the end of the month. These 4 wines are predominantly aged and fermented in Stainless Steel tanks as they do not have a heavy aroma or flavor of oak or smoke. 
--The Chardonnay is a very fruit forward, tropical wine that would pair well with curried lamb & rice and a romantic comedy 
--The Sauvignon Blanc is very reminiscent of a traditional New Zealand/Australia style, in that it is very crisp and fresh with notes of bell pepper and pear, a perfect companion for white fish, asparagus and stand-up comedy. 
--The Red blend is a wonderful amalgamation of varieties that come together to make a very velvety, smooth red wine with notes of red & black currant, this would pair great with a good book and another glass. 
--Lastly is the Merlot, a very light example of the variety, but still nicely done with flavors of red currant and a touch of cherry, this would pair very well with an ice cream sundae and sunsets.

National Mulled Wine Day & Cetamura Chianti

posted Mar 3, 2017, 7:44 AM by Heritage Liquor   [ updated Mar 3, 2017, 7:44 AM by Heritage Liquor ]

Cetamura Chianti

Today, Friday March 3rd, is a day of celebration for wine drinkers, as today is National Mulled Wine Day. A great holiday to celebrate with the cold weather on the way out and the crisp Spring weather on the way in. Mulled wine is most commonly drank during the hard winter to keep spirits high and your body warm, but really, drinking mulled wine can be done at any time, especially if the weather has a touch of a chill. Made up of your choice of wine, I used Cetamura Chianti, and a blend of spices, [HERE] is a link to a great recipe, mulled wine is a great drink to share with friends and family, and is incredibly versatile in what spices and how much of each you want to taste.

Cetamura Chianti hails from Tuscany, Italy from the Chianti Sub-region, built from Sangiovese and Canoiolo grapes this wine has very rich aromas of dark fruits, including cherry & blackberry, with a touch of cinnamon & clove in the finish. This not only makes using it for mulled wine a great combination of flavor, but is also a very pleasing experience when drank without the additional spicing or just a flavorful meal and good conversation.

Wine of the Month & Thanksgiving 2016

posted Nov 21, 2016, 8:20 AM by Heritage Liquor   [ updated Nov 21, 2016, 9:05 AM by Heritage Liquor ]

In case you missed the Wine of the Month, Alma Mora Winery out of Argentina is making wonderful wines that would pair great with Thanksgiving fare, without overpowering the food or the other wines. The Malbec is bold and friendly with aromas of dark fruit and spice, the red blend is a well rounded dinner wine with an earthiness and ripe fruit character, and their Sauvignon Blanc is bright and crisp making all three of these great wines to offer at your Thanksgiving meal.

Not many people think to bring a Pinot Grigio to dinner because typically that style has a very neutral flavor, but Toschi has gone able that and made a Pinot Grigio packed with as much flavor as they could give it. Boasting flavors of citrus and apple, this wine would pair fantastically well with turkey and hollandaise sauce with a side of buttered green beans

Not all Thanksgiving dinners are created equally, and neither is Bogle Essential Red. This red is an all around crowd pleaser boasting flavors of dark fruits and dried herbs with aromas of cedar and pipe tobacco making a great wine to have if you are going the route of Steak or Tacos this Thanksgiving.

Being a host on Thanksgiving is a big deal, that is why, as host, you should take care of yourself the day of with a Mimosa breakfast before the hectic day of cooking begins. Fantinel Prosecco is a perfect option for that, a Semi-Dry Prosecco lightly floral and not over poweringly fruity this wine will pair great with orange juice, but would also be great to pair with the spices in Mincemeat & pumpkin pie or even with the more light fare of appetizers before dinner.

After dinner is over and family is just relaxing with their games or football there is always second dinner where all the leftovers come back out for open faced turkey sandwiches with all the fixings and a glass of Wente Riverbank Riesling to pair with it. A semi-sweet Riesling, this wine has notes of honeysuckle, lychee and a finishing touch of nutmeg to round it all out and make second dinner all that much better.

Toschi Pinot Noir is the light bodied wine you are looking for this Thanksgiving. Boasting flavors of cherries and caramelized oak, this wine not only pairs perfectly with a honey ham and cranberries, but it is so easy drinking it might not make it to the dinner table once your guest start arriving.

Pavão Vinho Verde

posted Jun 14, 2016, 12:06 PM by Heritage Liquor   [ updated Jun 14, 2016, 12:06 PM by Heritage Liquor ]

If you get our weekly newsletter, you already know this, but we are featuring a great summer time wine from now till the end of summer. Pavão Vinho Verde is a unique wine in that it is not named after the grape variety used, but after the literal translation of "green wine" or not so literal "young wine." The Vinho Verde style can be somewhat different depending on producer, some like it more fruity and floral, where as some, like the makers of Pavão, prefer it more citrus heavy and sharp. This a great wine for patios, boats, pools or cool basements, and we will have it on sale for $5.99 till the end of summer. So what is not to like? Swing by, grab a couple and have a great summer!

Copper & Kings Cr&ftwerks Brandy

posted Apr 26, 2016, 1:05 PM by Heritage Liquor   [ updated Apr 26, 2016, 1:05 PM by Heritage Liquor ]

Copper & Kings Cr&ftwerks Brandy
If you have always wanted to taste 3 Floyds Dark Lord here is your chance to try a Brandy that was aged in the same barrels. Copper & Kings is an outstanding distillery from Louisville, Kentucky that is taking the idea of craft distilling even farther. They have come out with a series of beer barrel aged Brandys (Cr&ftwerks) aged in barrels from Oskar Blues (G'Knight & Deviant Dales), Against the Grain (Mac Fanny Baw), Sierra Nevada (Imperial Smoked Porter) & 3 Floyds (Dark Lord). These Brandys are very limited, and the barrel aged beers that were used are not available outside of their respective breweries.

January Sake Feature

posted Jan 11, 2016, 9:43 AM by Heritage Liquor   [ updated Jan 31, 2016, 10:00 PM by Heritage Liquor ]

For January we will be featuring 4 of our new Sakes. These are all different styles of Sake that all fall into the category of Junmai, which is "pure" Sake, made only from rice, yeast, koji-kin (what is just to dissolve the rice starch) & water, and like beer, Sake is a brewed beverage. The four Sakes we will be featuring are all of the drink cold variety, we have yet to bring in any of the drink warm or hot styles as of yet. Check back weekly for updates on the other Sakes, and stop by and try a couple.
Our first Sake feature is from Komuki out of Gunma, Japan. their Tokubetsu Junmai Sake is a treat, very light on the nose with a slight starchy aroma, this one tastes of sweet floral water and spiced pear, with a finish of silky honey. This Sake also has a very low polish on it at 70% making this one of the more approachable and very easy to drink styles. This easy drinking Sake is great if paired with Tempura or Sashimi.

The Ozeki One Cup Sake is one of the better "everyday" Draft-style Sake available; packaged in its own cup, this drink is great. A Sake you would see as an equivalent to the American adjunct Lager, One cup is a medium-full bodied Sake that has a balanced flavor of nutty fruits and a light, but noticeable boozy finish from the 14% ABV. Great for just having after work or with friends, this is likely the most approachable Sake we have in stock right now.

Ozeki Platinum is a Junmai Daiginjo sake which means that there is only 50% of the rice grain remaining after polishing providing more depth and complex flavors. This Sake has a very pleasant aroma stone fruits and flavors of sweet peppers and a warming note of the 16% alcohol. More on the drier side, this Sake would be great paired with steak and oysters, but also with sitting in a comfy chair after a long work day.

The Ozeki Nigori is an unfiltered, milky in color and texture dessert style Sake, or one that is great to be paired with spicy foods. During storage, a Nigori Sake will produce a cloud of sediment at the bottom of the bottle that requires shaking before serving to produce the sweet creamy flavors, similar to that of coconut milk, and the opaque like body that Nigori Sake is known for.
