Gifford Abricot du Roussillon

Liqueur exclusively made from the slow maceration of “Rouges du Roussillon” apricots. Golden yellow liqueur with fine orange shades.

The taste is very sweet at first, reminding of one caramelized apricot compote. The color is canary-yellow with golden shades. A heady tropical nose, laden with strong flavors of ripe and dried banana. The taste is sweet, butter fried banana blazed with an oak-aged alcohol (rum or cognac).

A natural maceration of best ginger from Asia enhanced with spices for a warm and rich character. Straw colored liqueur.

Lightning CdP Blanc
California


Displaying a day-bright golden hue, CdP Blanc is a study in opposing forces. Vibrant aromas of white peach, ripe pineapple, and juicy tangerine integrate with limestone minerality and tender green herbs. A rich, mouthcoating palate, the reward of sur lie aging and batonnage, is enlivened with a lush, racy acidity. Layered, complex and seductive, this wine will keep you on your toes until the last, long, satisfying sip. 55% Grenache Blanc, 30% Piquepoul Blanc, 15% Marsanne
               

Lightning Grenache
California


Aromas of cool limestone and peppery wild game are underlined by subtle, earthy hints of small white flowers, dandelion leaves and pine bark. Flavors of ripe raspberry and pomegranate drive the palate, showing off a lively acidity, balanced by velvety tannins and savory notes of black plum skin and oyster mushrooms. Nervy and dense, with an elegant structure and fruit-driven finish, this is a stunning example of California Grenache.
               
Lightning Cease & Desist
California


A tongue-in-cheek reference to a narrowly avoided litigious moment in Lightning Wines’ history, Cease & Desist is a robust California red blend. Built around a base of Grenache, along with small amounts of Mourvedre, Cinsault, Counoise, and Syrah, this wine is all about ripeness and texture. Aged on the lees in neutral French oak and bottled unfined and unfiltered, Cease & Desist will encourage you to do nothing of the sort. Balancing a velvety mouthfeel and bright acidity, Cease & Desist fills the glass with luscious aromas of dark plums, rose petals and cocoa, with subtle hints of violet and tarragon.

Pine Ridge Chenin Blanc + Viognier
California

This isn't a new wine at Liquor World, but very awesome for warm weather sipping!

Blending Chenin Blanc with Viognier—it was just an experiment. Until Pine Ridge tasted it and realized they had created a masterpiece. Together, they deliver a unique tapestry of flavors and aromas that are elegant and easy to enjoy.

That beautiful fragrance of jasmine, honeyed pears, and chai spice. The succulent flavors of tropical fruit. A crisp, refreshing finish that unleashes provocative notes of white peaches, pineapple, and zesty citrus.
