Raptor Ridge Winery.....
Gran Moraine Chardonnay
Willamette Valley, Oregon

Notes from Raptor Ridge: We’ve always loved white Burgundy. In the past decade, we have witnessed Chardonnay growers in the Willamette Valley gaining knowledge and expertise farming Chardonnay in Oregon’s climate and soils. We decided it was time to get back to producing limited quantities of one of our favorite styles and varietals of white wine.

Our Chardonnay is a Vineyard designated Dijon Clone 76 hailing from 210-acre Gran Moraine Vineyard in the Yamhill-Carlton AVA. This balanced wine was barrel fermented, with just 10% new oak, the remainder neutral. To create a creamy, round texture. The resulting wine has a creamy and round texture and mouthfeel, yet is still very clean and crisp, focused on the ripe citrus spectrum.

Raptor Ridge Winery
Gran Moraine Estate Pinot
Willamette Valley, Oregon

Heading west from Carlton on the valley floor, Meadowlake Road gradually ascends into the Coast Range, where it tracks the Nestucca River through coniferous rainforest to the Pacific Ocean. The foothills here contain one of the larger vineyard designates in Yamhill-Carlton, the 210-acre Gran Moraine Vineyard. Planted in 2005 by Pacific Partners, in conjunction with CALPERS (California Public Employees Retirement System), Gran Moraine climbs from 180 to 420 feet, and is planted to both Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. Well-drained, ancient Willakenzie and Hazelair soils are aided by state-of-the-art vineyard management, and produce classically-styled red-fruited wines, with hints of bittersweet chocolate and baking spice. Since 2009 Raptor Ridge has sourced clones 114, 667 and Pommard from mid-slope blocks, as well as those at the top of the hill.

The wine was matured 9 months if French oak barrels, with an overall new oak impact of 27%.

Raptor Ridge
Shea Vineyard Pinot Noir
Willamette Valley, Oregon

Raptor Ridge’s working history with this vineyard extends back to the earliest days of our winery, when, in 1996, Scott began sourcing ungrafted Pommard from Block 1. Raptor Ridge presently draws its fruit from Block 11, midway up the East Hill, planted with clones 115 and 777 on 4409 rootstock. The structure of Shea usually permits long-term aging. 

Le Crèma Rose
Monterey, California

The embodiment of spring, La Crèma Rose is such a beautiful and delicious wine, perfect for an Easter table. Aromas of raspberry, strawberry, and hints of fresh citrus. Flavors of fresh red berries, watermelon and mandarin orange are complemented by undertones of minerality. Delicate, crisp and vibrant.


Blind Luck Winery
Cookson, OK


Liquor World now offers new fun wines from Blink Luck Winery from our neighbors in Cookson, OK.

Oklahoma wineries produce a variety of wines from standard wine grapes. A few Oklahoma wineries have experimented with non-traditional fruits and peppers in making wine. Oklahoma has only one winery which produces ice wine. Oklahoma's wineries are scattered throughout the state, with a majority of them located in Green Country in northeast Oklahoma. Oklahoma has one designated American Viticultural Area, the Ozark Mountain AVA.

Noble Vines 515 Rose
Central Coast, California


On the nose there are aromas of raspberries, mandarin, and floral notes. The flavors on the palate consist of dried raspberry, blueberry, citrus, rose petals and has some mineral notes. This rose has a lively attack with a rich mid-palate and a long expressive finish.

Chateau St Michelle Mimi Chardonnay
Horse Haven Hills, Washington State

Sourced from vineyards in the Horse Heaven Hills including their vineyard at Canoe Ridge Estate, Mimi Chardonnay is made in a lightly oaked, elegant style that is great with food. This wine offers apple and pear fruit character with bright natural acidity. An ideal site for Chardonnay, the vineyard at Canoe Ridge Estate lies on a steep, south-facing slope to the Columbia River. 90 pts. Wine Enthusiast

Cuttings By The Prisoner Wine Company
California


Cuttings, Prisoner's Cabernet Sauvignon, is a unique and special blend. It combines the richness, complexity and depth of hillside Cabernet Sauvignon with the structure and intensity of Petite Sirah and Syrah. The label, a photograph of grapevines, is inspired by the age-old method of using cuttings from a vineyard to propagate new vines.

Luscious and round with alluring aromas of black cherry and roasted herbs. The palette is savory and structured with flavors of robust black fruit, currant, and espresso. Ripe plum and peppery spice alongside complex tannins evolve into a delicate finish.

Kosher Wines for Passover & Easter

Barkan Cabernet Sauvignon
Israel


Produced in the rich soil of northern Israel with ripe and exclusive grapes, Barkan Classic Cabernet Sauvignon maintains a deep ruby red color with spicy berry aromas intermingled with oak, and a full…Layers of oak, dark berry, and spice are supported by soft tannins and focused acidity.

 

Barkan Pinot Noir
Israel


Producing a fine Pinot Noir requires an exact balance of warm days and cool nights. Barkan found this balance in their vineyard at Mitzpah Ramon in the high desert. The wine is marked by soft, yet palpable tannin, with a fresh almost strawberry aroma with hints of black cherries and mint. Barkan Pinot Noir's medium body and crisp finish goes well with grilled salmon or veal, and is best served at a cool room temperature.

Barkan Reserve Barrel Aged Cabernet Sauvignon

Liquor World carries Kosher wines from Psagot Winery in Israel

While the first bottles of Psagot Wine were introduced in 2002, the winery makes use of facilities that date to antiquity. Psagot Wine is aged in a special cave containing winemaking implements that date to at least the time of the Second Temple. The combination of ancient tradition and sophisticated technology adds to the allure and mystique of this boutique winemaker. The local vineyards yield a distinctively mineral-tasting grape, which surprises and delights the palate. All Psagot Wine labels bear the image of the ancient cave now used as the aging room, a reminder of the long tradition and hard work that bring this heavenly bottle to your table.

We also carry Kosher wines from Carmel Winery in Israel

Carmel Winery is the historic winery of Israel. It was founded in 1882 by Baron Edmond de Rothschild, owner of Chteau Lafite in Bordeaux. Carmel owns the two largest wineries in Israel, at Rishon Le Zion, south of Tel Aviv and at Zichron Yaacov, south of Haifa. Each has deep underground cellars built by Rothschild in the 19th century.

The story of Carmel represents the story of Israel, and the recent developments of Carmels wines, symbolizes the revolution of Israeli wine in recent years.

Stone Tangerine Express IPA

A tropical India Pale Ale packed with whole tangerine & pineapple

Note from Stone: This ain’t no just-add-juice approach. This one is for adults. We use bountiful whole tangerine purée, which brings pithy, crisp bitterness to the citrus flavor. In addition to the complexities of the tangerine — the likes of which you can only get by using the whole fruit — we judiciously employ just a hint of whole pineapple for a backnote (you’d likely not even pick it out of the mix if we didn’t tell you it was there). We’re not looking for a sweet concoction to appease the “I want my beer to taste like fruit juice” crowd. This is Stone. 6.7% ABV, 75 IBUs

Ommegang Short Sleeve Saison
New Spring Release


Welcome warmer weather with a brand new seasonal offering, Short Sleeve Saison. This refreshing 4.5% ABV, 35 IBU saison is the perfect accompaniment for celebrating the arrival of spring, and the fresh air adventures that come with it.

“Short Sleeve Saison is one of our most easy drinking offerings to date,” says Justin Forsythe, our innovation manager. “The delicate yet complex balance between lightness, spice, and fruitiness is sure to please the palate and leave you desiring another sip. As the weather begins to warm again, we hope this beer is a go-to for refreshment, and something light enough to keep you anticipating the warmer months ahead.”

Short Sleeve Saison pours a pale straw-colored with a pure white head. The aroma is floral, with a touch of fruit, and has grassy undertones. The flavor opens with a bit of lemon tartness followed by mild wheat character, and the mouthfeel is delicate and quickly resolves in a crisp, clean finish.

Brewed with pilsner, wheat, acidulated malts, and flaked oats. Short Sleeve Saison is hopped with Southern Hemisphere Topaz and Motueka hop varieties, and spiced with grains of paradise, lemon peel, and coriander.

Victory Kirsch Gose
Back in stock for the season

Excite your senses with a sharp, sweet burst of fresh cherries. Sublime and effervescent, this bold and bright session ale has an enticing cherry-fruit character.

Pours a ruby to light red with white foam. Aroma of fresh sour cherries with flavors of tartness, intense rounded cherry character, and a refreshing salty character. Crisp carbonation and light body are both combined into a thirst quencher. 4.7% ABV

Stone Enjoy By 04.20.17
In stock for limited time


Devastatingly dank... a celebration of resinous green buds.

Note from Stone: Our all-important, hop-driven quest to deliver the most devastatingly fresh IPA on the planet facilitated a paradigm shift in 2012 with the launch of Stone Enjoy By IPA. Not only did we brew this beer with more than 10 different hops, we brewed it specifically NOT to last. Acclaimed for its groundbreakingly short shelf life, this intense double IPA brought forth a whole new concept of what constitutes “fresh” — guaranteeing fans the ultimate level of hoppiness. This devastatingly dank stash of our dry-hopped, hop-bursted double IPA won’t last long. Get your hands on this dank, golden beauty before everyone else gets wind of it.

Abita Creole Cream Ale
Seasonl

Ready for a tasty break from the super-heavy and super-hoppy? Abita's new Creole Cream Ale is all about easy drinking and interesting flavors. It’s Abita’s unique take on a true American style, brewed with pale malted barley for sweetness and Louisiana-grown Blanca Isabel Purple Rice for a crisp, dry finish. Mild dry-hopping delivers a pleasant fruity, piney aroma that balances the grains. 5.0% ABV, 13 IBUs

Boulevard Reverb Imperial Pilsner

With its classic recipe and impeccable craftsmanship, this summer seasonal is a study in delicately balanced contrasts. Up front, Pilsner malt makes a clear yet restrained statement, answered by the steady, harmonious hum of Saaz hops, traces of which linger in the dry, crisp finish. 7.7% ABV, 32 IBUs


Elysian Space Dust IPA

A totally nebular IPA... light to medium bodied. The hopping is pure starglow energy, with Chinook to bitter and late and dry additions ofCitra and Amarillo. 8.2% ABV, 73 IBUs

Piney River Raise A Ruckus Imperial Stout

From another Ozark brewery from Missouri... A double American / Imperial Stout.

Dark roasted grains provide full malt flavors of chocolate and coffee. The beer is finished on vanilla bean pods and the “Piney River blend” of Brick & Mortar fresh roasted coffee beans adding additional flavor and aroma. 9.7% ABV



Combier Orange Liqueur

All natural ingredients, 80 proof, triple distilled. The original “triple sec”
“Comparing Combier to conventional triple sec is like comparing a Monet to a kid’s finger painting.” - Tasting Panel

Original Combier, the world’s first triple sec, is made according to the exact specifications of a proprietary recipe created in Saumur, France in 1834 by Jean-Baptiste Combier and his wife Josephine. Over the years, many have attempted to imitate the authentic taste of Original Combier using synthetic flavoring, shortcuts in the production and distillation process, or alterations in alcohol content – all to no avail.

The bright, citrus flavor, clear character and smooth finish of Original Combier is unparalleled, a testament to the painstaking process and strict traditions that still go into making each bottle today.

Original Combier is best enjoyed by itself over fresh ice or in any classic or modern cocktail that calls for triple sec or orange liqueur.

Baileys Almande
Almondmilk Liqueur

A delicious and light tasting spirit from Baileys made with real almondmilk. This smooth spirit blends the luscious, nutty flavors of real almondmilk and real vanilla to create a versatile drink.

Dairy free, gluten free.

 

Fair Café Liqueur
Handcrafted in France

A coffee liqueur from French producer Fair. This uses Arabica beans grown in Huatusco, Mexico, and carries the Fairtrade mark for both the beans and the sugar used to sweeten the liqueur.

Boar Creek Appalachian Whiskey

Boar Creek is a small distillery up in the Blue Ridge Mountains. Theye seek to make truly unique whiskies that don't require years in a barrel to be good.

Note from brewer: In the early 1900's, my great grandfather, Cicero Dick Guynn, started making whiskey, just to keep food on the table. As it turns out, he made some of the finest whiskey in the country. He took great care and pride in this, and did quite well with it. Now, a century later, it's time to bring the family recipe to the world. We have a 9 ingredient mash bill, using 100% Appalachian grown products, and our stills are made just how Cicero Dick made them. Our whiskey only age 3 weeks, but that's all it needs. At Boar Creek Appalachian Whiskey, we make our liquor fast, and we make it good. It may be hard to believe, but if you'll come down, you'll find that, much like livin' down here, once you give it a try, you may not want to do anything else.

Silver Star Whiskey

Texas Silver Star Whiskey is produced at Trinity River Distillery in Fort Worth and is aged to perfection in charred American white oak barrels.

Texas Honey Liqueur
